@ gary seriously you must be my financial stalker, I don't pretend to be an expert in forex or investment. One thing I do know its rigged for the mega rich, with the crumbs being picked up by the plebs. If Id took the advise of half the experts here on JT id gone bankrupt years ago. I have a friend who is very wealthy doing just this and I can tell you its a 24/7 days a week job. If half the experts here on JT had his expertise determination wealth they wouldn't be wasting their time/money replying to comments on JT they'd be trying to make money that matches their aura of financial intellect/expertise.

Why again and again calling for 2% inflation, why not targeting 2% wage hikes ? why would any company agree to a wage hike when the cost of living/ inflation is near zero. having inflation at a healthy 1~2% would force companies to raise wages. if you force companies to raise wages theyll just take it from someplace else like reduced services/quality and smaller items for the same price.

playing a game lie this is meant to be fun. So some people are paying others to play the game for them, these recruits are most likely doing it for an income and playing it 10hrs a day a lot of the fun of it would be lost im guessing. kind of defeats the whole purpose isn't it!!?

95% of women just want wallet anyway, while men second mother. I think it's a fair trade. it might help if you love each other as well.

“I have joined the political arena so that the powerful can no longer beat up on people that cannot defend themselves,” tell that to all the small investors that lost money from Trumps bankrupt companies all the while his personally wealth remained intact. this guys moral compass is broken and hes as fake as his toupee and crocodile smiles.

The yen traditionally dips this time of year when Japanese and ex-pat vacationers exchange yen for foreign currency. Like takin' candy from babies. oh of course, and certainly nothing to do with Abes 20trillion stimulus package!?

I think the new symbol just makes it slightly more idiot proof. well, considering most foreigners that come to Japan don't have experience or find it interesting to sit in a hot tub with complete strangers, butt naked most of the time. at first impression, it looks like a cannibal club or something referring to cooking people!

@Chikuyokei yes incompetence is everywhere, but Japan struggles to get a working satellite into orbit, that's a far cry from the complexities of the space shuttle.

ah Japan and their blue sheets, from makeshift shelters to protectors of privacy. If you don't want people to see put a blue sheet over it. There was a huge crash at Suzuka circuit a while ago , one of first people on the scene where the blue sheet people, actually white sheet in that instants , never mind the driver in the car was in a serious condition they were unwrapping the blue sheet before even the paramedics were even getting the guy from the car. Form over function comes first in Japan. watch?v=m1j7hmJmSJA

the answer shows how clever Softbank is. buying a bargain when a currency is low isn't necessarily clever, just common sense, what you have to ask is it clever for Softbank to put themselves more than $100billion in debt!? It could work out to be a masterstroke or a massive stuff up, time will tell.
