Simon Black:一カ国だけ外国旅行するなら、日本に行くべき。なぜなら… (途中:その1)

抜粋(デタラメ)


・Jim Rogers はかつて私(Simon Black)にこう言った。「仮に、一生に一度、一カ国だけ外国旅行するとしたら どこがお勧めかと言うと…。インドだ。」

・だが、私の意見は Jim Rogers とは違う。インドではなく、日本に行くべきだ。なぜ日本なのか? それは…。







一部引用



Some time ago while we were having drinks, Jim remarked that he occasionally tells people, “If you can only travel to one foreign country in your life, go to India.”

In Jim’s view, India presents the greatest diversity of experiences- mega-cities, Himalayan villages, coastal paradises, and a deeply rich culture.

My answer is different: Japan.



This debt is so large that in the 2018 budget that was just released last month, the government reported that it will take more than 40% of tax revenue to make debt payments this year.

...

Banks and investment funds continue to plow their depositors savings into government bonds- which, by the way, carry NEGATIVE interest rates.

In other words, investors are loaning money at rates which are less than zero to a government that’s so heavily indebted it has to spend 40% of its tax revenue just to make debt payments.

This is pure insanity. But on Planet Japan, it’s perfectly normal behavior to engage in ritualistic financial suicide.




Japan’s Nikkei 225 stock index finally peaked at nearly 39,000 points on December 29, 1989.

And over the next few years, the giant economic bubble rapidly deflated as the central bank gradually ‘tightened’ the money supply and raised interest rates.

Within two years the Nikkei 225 had lost half of its value. Within a few years more it had fallen to as low as 8,000.

Even today, nearly THIRTY YEARS later, Japan’s stock market is still 40% below its all-time high.
