Japan, from Zubin Al Genubi

January 18, 2020 |

 I am in Hokkaido Japan enjoying deep powder in the back country.

Japan is beautiful and the people can be friendly, but in many ways there is a stultifying social pressure to conform.

Lack of immigration leads to labor shortages.

There is a sense of slow decay out here in the backwoods.

Here is a 20 year sideways Japanese stock market going nowhere.

    Decay in the backwoods, I view that as a good thing , people move to the cities and let nature recover outside. Modernisation still continues in japan , I don’t see what’s wrong with a stable or declining population in this time of biodiversity and global warming . I see it as a good thing to replenish the planet . Civilisation will still move forward for the better

    Japanese after this next slide near the 14k NKKI level will be the buy of the lifetime world wide. It will be as the 1945 level in the INDU.

    Stock investors will continue to search for USA stocks, but the real bull market will be the NKKI.

    It will be the USA turn to do as Japan had done the next decade and more.
