China has been borrowing Japanese Yen at 0 and exchanged to USD for investment abroad for Belt and road initiative which caused lost of interest income in hundreds of billions for the US federal reserve Japan has currency swap deal with the US and their debt ratio is at 260 of their GDP thus Japanese federal bank kept their 10 years bonds at minus 01 to 0 or else they can't pay their debt Washington must stop currency swap deal with Japan to stop China and Japan must compensate Washington in hundreds of billions of interest income lost

The root cause is the mentality Working for Mitsubishi or Hitachi as a "salary-man" carries more prestige than being a self-made entrepreneur earning millions With that mentality, there's nowhere to go but down

Japan: br🔵foreign labor to solve labor shortage? br🔵inflation? br(🔵automization & robots)br🔵Lack of innovation in Japan (risk aversion; no successful apps, cross ref w/ China which has TikTok, WeChat, etc)br🔵Relatively high poverty rate compared to the G7 (2nd highest in G7)br🔵Salaries tied to seniority, rather than performance - should this policy stay or go? brbr🔵Women participation in the labor force (Japanese culture)br🔵Brutal Japanese work culture (karoushi) br🔵Is it a good thing for Japanese employees to only work for 1 company over the lifetime? Why or why not?

Japan has lent so much money to the US !
Comment from : Edwin Brace

The truth is that even "stagnation" is optimistic, an illusion Subtract Japan's QE debt spending and the economy would certainly have been in proper minus growth depression for 20 years Rather than changing, the public (or the retirees) seem content for the LDP party to preserve the status quo

The US doesn't allow any country to surpass its position In 1985, the US forced Japan to sign the Plaza Accord that ruined Japan Now that China opposes a similar accord, the US uses trade sanctions and smear campaigns

Ramon Ng
poverty is caused by aging society, less youth, less drive to innovate, aggression towards China, dependence on the US, and losing the national spiritbrbrI lived for a year in Japan in the late 70s, everyone was wealthy, Japan was a rising superpower, the world was driving Toyotas, watching Sony tvs, riding bullet trainsthen the Plaza Accord stunt by the USbrbrsayonara, Nihonjin
Comment from : Ramon Ng

Ramon Ng
the US engineered the downfall of Japan, in the late 80s, because it was nbr 2 and threatening to overtake the US, so there was the Plaza Accord, and Japan never recovered in the 2000s, South Korea was rising so fast, with Korean Kpop, food and movies dominating the world, Samsung, Hyundai, etcbrso, the US slowed it down, too and South Korea never recoveredbrbrthe US is doing it to China, but due to strong leadership, all attempts have failed , Huawei, 5G, ZteNbn, Xinjiang, HK, Tibet, Taiwan, the South China sea, genocide, forced labor, etceven the corona virusall backfiredbrbrbut China can not be contained, ig is just too smart for the UsAbrbrbut not the Japanesetwice nuked by US, still is following its dictatesso sad for the oncd mighty Japanese empire

Mohmee Gaik
Part of the poverty in Japan could be low confidence in government leading to saving than spending on consumer goods Prices on consumer goods are higher because Japan consider itself to be like westerners How to compete on international markets It would need God intervention to change the downward spiral!

Simply put it, it was the USA and Western allies of Japan that contained and sanctioned Japans economy in the mid 1980s and Japan never recovered ever since With friends like that, who needs enemies?

Someone please correct me if Im wrong, but doesn't Japan have one of the lowest unemployment rates of the modern nations?
Comment from : KatyushaRockets

The problem with this lifetime employment scheme is the fact that people can't fired I have seen way too many older guys sleeping on the job and getting away with it herebrbrThe best thing they could do is get rid of the system and make EVERYONE in the country a contract employee This would increase competition, efficiency and raises It would also be a lot easier to find a job for everyone than it is now "Lifetime Employement" positions are way too much of a risk for a companies here, so they tend to pick the safest candidates over the more innovative ones

i think its better if they also give incentives for their diaspora to repatriate and that can potentially come on Japan is the powerhouse of East Asia I wish the best for Japan and Taiwan and South Korea I do hope all three end up forming a potential defence triad against China I really wish India can help these countries with their defence against the evil CCP China is the ultimate enemy to world peace and I think it must eventually democratize otherwise this will be extremely disastrous for world peace

japan can change for better if they end up allowing for policies that would help their defence production

The US destroyed the Japanese economy starting in the 1990's and until the Japanese government has the courage to counter the US suppression, its economy is not going to improve!
