Er, Countless people have tried to short again JP bond auctions last year throughout, including one of the three meetings for hedge funds having it as their main topic. What happened? They got eaten as JP people snapped up the bonds and kept the price up (high domestic saving that's yet to decline meaningfully due to drawing from the coming aging population). Better look at their bond maturity in longivity bases. Also, 950 tril yen is only 1 tril dollar, not that far from the current budget deficit of US.

>> No.4864680

950 Trillion is a bit less than 9 trillion USD. America is currently 11 Trillion in debt. And our citizens don't save either.

Thankfully USD is still the global standard currency so we aren't as fucked as places like Greece or Japan if we ever go bankrupt.

>> No.4864681


I mean 10 tril. In that case, it's still the same as US's, as the US current plan is looking at deficit spending to the tune of 10 tril over 10 years, with 60-100 tril of SS and medicare cost hangover.

People have not gotten paid for their work in many countries for some time. They continue to do their work even without getting paid for it, because they have this thing called responsibility. The guy who comes to pick up the trash keeps doing it because he knows that if he doesn't the city he lives in goes to shit in a matter of days.

Of course, Americans have no understanding of this concept of responsibility. They won't do anything unless paid for it or otherwise receiving compensation. That is why your country sucks and socialist countries are so much better, we actually care about other people, you just care about yourselves.

Yeah, pretty much. We know that if we do something for someone without asking anything in return, we are more likely to be able to rely on them if we at some time need to.

Americans don't understand that the money they ask in return can at some point just become worthless. However, the impression you leave to your friends or neighbours that you are someone who helps out other people when they need it will stay, regardless of what happens to your currency.

The fact that Japan's debt is on the verge of hitting 200% of GDP is overplayed in the media, which may have some negative impact itself: it is only one facet, a marker of their broad economic problem that has been around for 20 years. They've been stuck in a deflationary trap and their current condition is an indicator of the state's failure to effectively change the economic expectations of its people. Strangely, fiscal and monetary policies that have been implemented since the asset price bubble implosion of the early nineties are exactly as they should have been, but we have seen no real growth as of yet. It is possible that in the absence of these policies savings and capital flight would have collapsed Japan's domestic industries more than a decade ago, but what is likely is that the cultural attitude towards money coupled with the lack of an authoritative financial body that sets clear economic goals to which people can respond has been at the heart of the propagation of this problem. Japanese who hear their indecisive central bankers new policies likely expect continued deflation, and no amount of central policy shift will make people who expect deflation spend.

tl;dr: Japanese industries will take a hit across the board, but nothing worse than what they've seen in the last 20 years unless the loss of a solid bond rating leads to massive flight of foreign capital. Since anime and eroge are essentially an exclusively domestic industry (they profit most from Japanese sales) they will only really be hurt by heightened interest rates as the loanable funds market shrinks. Maybe a credit crunch. Sales aren't likely to fall significantly unless there is a serious fall in national income. I wouldn't worry too much.
