Better raise taxes again! We can't have wealth in the hands of regular people, but rather concentrated in the banks and other oligarchs.

Yes, let the whole world embrace American imperialism. Maybe we can just give up national sovereignty too and pay tribute to King Obama.

This was almost all caused by keeping the nuclear plants shut down. The cost of nuclear plants being shut down is equivalent to hosting the olympics every month, and that is discounting the environmental costs of acidifying our oceans (oceans are so acidic now that within 30 years there may be almost no plankton or fish left; 50% of the oxygen you breathe is from plankton, so you should care!) and streams and new cancers from burning coal and other fossil fuels.

Sounds like chronic vitamin D deficiency. Not going outside makes it harder to get vitamin D, thus it is a negative feedback loop.

How will you get the hydrogen? Actually doing that will use more electricity than just storing oil/coal-generated electricity in batteries. Thus it is the opposite of eco-friendly.
Eco-friendly is clean and safe nuclear power, where 1000 years of pollution free energy could be provided by known uranium reserves, if fuel is reprocessed.

I think he is a pretty good guy who cares a lot about Japan. Most Japanese politicians only care about being popular and getting money and attention for themselves. Ishihara tried to make a stand for Japanese culture, even though it is not a popular thing to do.

Japan is indeed over the financial cliff already and in free falI.
I've got my money in digital currencies like Bitcoin and NEM. I don't trust that the politicians won't just devalue the currency a couple of orders of magnitude (inflation is the same as taxation).

This is a dangerous situation. If the politicians aren't careful, Japan will end up like Korea where everyone is a slave to foreign corporations and banking systems (even Samsung is over 50% foreign-owned; foreign corporations and banks don't care about the welfare of the citizens of other countries and treat them like modern-day slaves).

I hope people can start to realize that debt-based economies don't work. Abenomics never even had a chance of working, even if the tax hike hadn't been passed.
This is why we need decentralized economic systems like bitcoin and NEM. It's time to put control of the economy back in the hands of the people.

Especially in Japan, we need peer-to-peer, decentralized currencies like Bitcoin and NEM. Money is a representation of a person's life force and it doesn't make sense to let bureaucrats arbitrarily change the value of it.
