And yet again figures show just how much of a basket case the japanese economy is. Hopeless, just hopeless and there's absolutely no answer to it. The japanese people will just go on gamaning and shoganaiing themselves as per usual of course and so things will just steadily go on getting worse.
Frightening to consider what the economy and the state of the country will be in 10 years time. No wonder the country can't attract the rich elite foreign workers they desire. Who in their right mind, english teachers excepted of course, would come to japan for a one year contract on the such low wages offered?? No one.

How did japan get itself into such a mess? The only foreigners who will go to japan now for the pitiful wages on offer are the poor third world factory workers and the fresh out of college types looking for a year's fun.

I had to laugh when I heard this news. Japan and abe are such basket cases. There is NO answer to the problems of the japanese economy. The yen and the economy will just continue diving. No wonder no one wants to put money into the dying currency yen these days!

When I was in High School, One kid tried to start bullying me. I told my parents who immediately enrolled me in the local boxing club. Wonderful for your confidence and of course, it's great for self defence. 16 years later, I'm still into boxing!

Poor girl. I've been involved in amateur boxing for some 15 years now but I consider myself totally non-violent outside of the ring but man, if I saw an incident like this taking place......
As a poster earlier said, kids should be taught self defence and fighting skills as part of their lessons at school. A lot more useful for their lives than some of the other stuff in my humble opinion.

Japan really is a hopeless basket case of a country. But there's nothing that can be done now to rescue the country from all its hopeless economic problems. Foreigners and many Japanese too I'm sure are hastily searching for ways to get out of the country before things get much worse, which they will.
On October 30th the BOJ is expected to massively raise the monthly Yen 80 trillion "stimulus" they flood the market with. Doesn't work to stimulate the economy at all but they do it anyway. The result will be another huge devaluation of the yen so anybody unwisely holding yen has a couple of weeks or so to divest themselves of this poisonous currency.

These old men look so stupid with their wrinkled faces but jet black dyed hair! Why do they do it??
There is no answer to Japan's population problem. 40% of the population have totally insecure part time and contract jobs. They have no confidence in the future for having children. And those with full time jobs are worked to death, leaving no energy for sex and making children. And look what immigration on a massive scale has done to European countries. Ruined them.
