A weak yen can only be a good thing. (I guess we should look at the good things about a weak yen)

A weak yen can only be a good thing. (I guess we should look at the good things about a weak yen)

In the past, export-oriented Japanese companies that suffered from the strong yen have moved their factories and other facilities overseas. Measures have already been taken to mitigate the impact of the exchange rate. Of course, a weaker yen means that domestically produced goods will sell better overseas.

So, corporate earnings, including Uniqlo, are at record highs, corporate tax revenues are at record highs, and GDP will also be boosted.

In addition, the government has about $1.3 trillion in dollar reserves (U.S. Treasury bonds), and there is about 30 trillion yen in foreign exchange gains from the recent sharp depreciation of the yen. And this is not being used to fund the supplementary budget, economically illiterate Prime Minister Kishida!☹️KDP Representative Tamaki was correct when he pointed out in the Diet that “the government will be happy.

Do not be mind-controlled by the media that a weak yen is bad. A strong yen and a weak yen are both good and bad, but a weak yen is easier to leverage for policy. The media should report the facts properly. There is too much mood reporting (impressionistic criticism). I always wonder, “Is that so? and then I look up the supporting facts (figures from the past and other developed countries) and compare them.

Foreign investment in tourism and real estate will also be stimulated, and Ginza’s explosive growth is greater than expected.

Will there be an increase in startup investment in Japan from abroad?

Now is the time to implement policies to increase domestic employment and income.

In other words, we should be able to take more agile policies than a strong yen. Politicians, please, study the economy and make Japan “Great” again!💫
