you must be kidding... iam german and this is by far not the best country in the world. WTF... its good to go there for a holiday , best would be the south but than run run. its a shocking country where everything is falling apart. the germans are the idiots and paying for all the other countries like greece, spain, italy... workers get 3-5euros an hour and lots of trouble with multicultural aspects. hope japan learns and not let foreigners easy in the country cos they will destroy the unique japanese styl. thats the only thing i like about japan, they dont have many foreigners and hostile religions followers

why is media mostly reporting negative news? man killed his wife... why not report... man bought flower for wife and she is happy now or 100 smiling people in tokyo...
just the usual negativity about some nonsense.

why nobody reports that cyprus goverment takes people savings away to finance their country? if you look deeper into japans finances shows way worse figures. japan has 240% debt to GDP thats more than 1.086.000.000.000.000 yen debt. who finance that debt? japanese people by buying goverment bonds for a little 0,57% interest. the biggest pozzi scheme in history. one day japan will come to the same point and they have no other option to take peoples saving away. not the euro is doomed the whole capitalist system.
