Japan's government didn't let the economy go through a depression and restructure like it needed to. They've been trying to prop that shit up with manipulation (negative fucking interest nigga, free market is kill) and were able to avoid pain in the short-term, but the long-term result of the manipulation is stagnation.

Japan's economy isn't dead, but it's not alive either. It's just in a comma, and dreaming of the 80s.

Such a complex topic is pretty impossible to discuss in any meaningful depth on 4chan. It can't even be done on boards dedicated to the topics of politics/economics without becoming a giant, incomprehensible shitstorm. So, I'm not even going to try to go into depth.

All I will say is this: Bearocrats far-removed from the daily lives of people cannot ever make decicions better than the people collectively can. Policy-makers need to fuck off, let the economy restructure, and give people freedom so that they can use their collective brilliance to solve problems.

God, I hope this post doesn't get me banned on /g/. If a mod deletes this reply, I'll take that as a note to bring up this kind of stuff here.

This. Keynesian stimulus is like using morphine to treat pain. Sometimes useful, if that pain results from surgery that will make you stronger in the long term. But most countries (electorates and politicians both) don't want to do the surgery and just use the morphine to mask the pain. Then pretty soon you still haven't solved the underlying issue, and you've got both chronic pain and now a morphine addiction.

Capitalism only works if you're willing to let the "destruction" half of "creative destruction" work. Try not to let any industry, business, or worker fail and you get a sclerotic economy full of unproductive zombies.

Kowloon was a refuge against state control before China moved into a quazi-market system. The 'lawlessness' that is frequently made reference to has to do with avoiding the licensing processes in China, which essentially dictated exactly who was allowed to do business. It wasn't Detroit, it was people running shops without a piece of paper from the government saying they could do so. The utilities were primitive because the surrounding state boxed them in and barred them from accessing any resources wherever possible. Despite the apparent hardships, the people that lived there were happy, and former residents speak fondly of their time there.

Thanks for the info anon. That place looked like cozy: the city.

It's still a shame that most people, when they see a place that only has the vestiges of freedom, and is also boxed-in economically (among other ways), always end-up saying "see, see! your 'capitalism' doesn't work!". If they applied that concept universally (for example, saying freedom doesn't work because there was an example of people being able to freely move around in their prison cells, and ignoring the fact their entire lives were managed by an institution), they'd see how easily-falsifiable it was.

Or wait, I'm wrong, because "well, that's different". Sigh.

Same school
Front entrance to the Ghetto School. Doesn’t really convey the usual state of dilapidation that the school was usually in. The town I lived in was making efforts to build itself up – in the three years I lived there, they’d renovated the train station twice, built two shopping centers/malls, rebuilt the two major banks in town, built a new hospital, built a sky bridge from the station to…well…whatever was in front of the station, and even put a sun clock on the front lawn of the town office. Despite all that, it was never in the budget to throw the Ghetto School a few bucks for renovation. That was always a sticking point with me, but I suppose the other issue with the Ghetto School would have been that whatever nice new things they built or renovated, probably would have been destroyed by the bastard students within two days. Cest la vie?

Its a rather complicated issue but as far as I can see it seems to stem from 2 sources.

Japan is extremely conservative and inward looking, the constant deference to seniors prevents progress in technology.

The spark wasn't there within Japan for the internet revolution, consequently everyone did not get a PC in their house.

Japan being a tech paradise was something largely confined to the 80s with a slow gradual decline once the economy collapsed and has just continued being a stagnant pond ever since.
Breakthroughs of technological development are rather isolated affairs, no real movement for progression within the sector like you see in the US/UK(or frankly in the globalised world) and the internal market doesn't have the money or the jobs anymore to consume like the 80s anymore.

Because it wasn't a lack of liquidity that sunk Japan at all. It was a refusal to write off bad debts and accept the losses that come when assets, property especially, decline drastically in value. Banks, not wanting to recognize any losses, preferred to roll over credit to insolvent zombie firms, even though they had no hope of ever paying down their debts in full.

Just noticed that Japan exceeded in Pop culture (including animu and vidya), technology jobs and manufacturing (including cutlery and automobiles):
>tech jobs = India
>manufacturing = China
>Pop culture (including some vidya) = South Korea
>Vidya = US

The only recognizable thing to come out of Japan recently are auto-motives and even so a lot of factories are moved off-shore like to US and South Korean plants. And even in that field, the South Koreans are catching up with companies like Dae Woo and Kia.

It seems like South Korea is the new Japan.

Japanese technology is a strange beast. Japan embraced high grade quality control based on Demming's work at Western Electric** which is why their cars are so reliable-Japanese emulation at it's best.

Jap Gov agencies like MITI pumped a fortune into insanely ambitions projects like the "Fifth Generation Computer" initiative during the 80's Bubble Economy boom times. Fifth Generation computers were supposed to be capable of artificial intelligence, and JP companies build special chips etc. and these odd experimental beasts were coded in PROLOG (I believe) and never attained their objective. Still the Fifth Gen project scared the crap out of Western computing, and was like the CS equivalent of contemporary SDI "Star Wars" as such.

Getting into this stuff is going down a nearly bottomless rabbit hole, and looking into contemporary work at JP research institutes like the vast RIKEN will show you the state of the art in JP tech and science.

** Western Electric was the equipment division of the Bell System, and their QC allowed them to build hardware like phones from 80 years ago that still work, central office switching machines good for an eternity, and vacuum tube theater sound equipment worth tens of thousands to collectors.

They're not. Dumb westerners just think being ahead in technology means consumers constantly replacing their craptops and smartphones to little or not benefit and giving kids taxpaid iPads to fuck around with. It's not. That's a sign of wealth and a wasteful culture. Meanwhile, japan is still a leader in robotics and sillicon production, like they always fucking were. Nothing changed. The west is just now adopting things japs had years before, and worldwide consumer tech "innovation" is stagnating so it's hard for dumbshits who stop caring past graphics cards and screen res to notice the difference.

Anime has nothing to do with it, and video games are a major technology/entertainment export of Japan.

They used cell phones.

Virtually every middle/high school in anime looks more or less the same as in real life.

Daewoo went bankrupt and got bought by Government Motors. You retard.

A lot of this hurr japan fell off meme comes from a lot of Japanese companies switching from business-to-consumer (samsung etc) to business-to-business. Where they have been successful. So while they may not have made things you buy, they made the parts that make up the things you buy, and more than that they made the things that made things you buy.

And about the declining population:

"The Japanese established an Institute of Population Problems as early as 1939. Back then the worry was over-population, and that continued to be the case through a postwar baby boom and into the 1950s. There were policies to discourage population growth. In the 1960s thinking turned to the problems that might arise from a declining population, beginning it was calculated in the 1990s. In fact Japan’s population peaked in 2008 and is now falling by about a quarter million a year. Fertility rate is low, ranked 211 out of 224 nations. Median age is high at 46.1, tied with Germany for second place in the world, behind Monaco. Main point here: The Japanese have been doing the long-term thinking about demographics that we haven’t been doing; and they’ve been doing it for 76 years. What have they concluded from all that thinking? Well, here’s a thing they have not concluded: They have not concluded that mass immigration is the solution to their demographic problems. They believe they can keep their standard of living — one of the world’s highest — maintain their technological advantages, and manage their national debt, without importing millions of foreign workers. There is no constituency in Japan favoring mass immigration. In Japan, even business moguls are patriotic."

Yeah the thing about the population meme is that if you look at other very highly developed countries like Germany, and you exclude the immigrant population's birthrate, and those are the guys that are pretty much completely useless, sucking in welfare money and doing jobs that could easily be automated, the birthrate of Germany's useful people is lower than Japan. So when mass automation comes, Japan will be in a position to transition much more painlessly than some other countries. Suddenly, the quantity of your workforce won't really matter at all, and it will be all about quality (you don't need 1000 people to staff a factory, you can do it with robots, but you need someone to think up what that factory is going to make).
