Good move but too much. Thats a high price to pay for that at this amount of shares T time in the world economic situation. There are fire sales going on all over the globe for mining assets that rely on China and then the rest of the world to return to unsustainable growth.

Murdock has lost the plot and become senile since being caught lying about hacking and to the commision. There must be something in it for Murdoch to back Abbott, pehaps to be able to own %100 of the papers and there for pull Abbotts strings. As for Abbott, he is flip floping on PPS, Boats, Gay M.

Based on this decision, Japan looks like a great place to start a Ponzi scheme. Its shocking too see this kind of justice, it just sends the wrong message to Japanese managment and global investors. I would expect this sort of thing in some othe countries as the norm but it seems Japan has gone backward. How they can hold there faces up in the international business comunity in future is beyond me.

I'm so sick of seeing truck drivers doing everything but drive, - phones, nav system, stock updated on tablets, counting change, READING BOOKS, WATCHING TV, etc, they think red lights and traffic rules don't apply to them, at least on roué 6. I'm sure they got there licenses from a pack of 2 minute ramen.

This does not mean cheaper electricity ! It means more companies making / taking more proffit from the people. Just as privatisation in other countries, no change occurres just fat cats ( politicians with shares) get a pice of the cake in new pies. More regulators more cost to manage, more jobs for gov more opertuniy for retirement positions.
