Advanced Deflation of Japan (la déflation pointe du Japon)
Everybody is talking about the global economic crisis.
Some say that the superiority of the U.S. is always assured since Japan and China rely on the American market; others say that the real economic size of China will soon surpass or has already surpassed America's; and the rest argue that the whole world is heading for a catastrophe.
But, super rich men and very rich men or even moderately rich men think that they will continue to be so rich. Only some middle-class guys will have to suffer loss of status. So, let governments collect taxes from the poor or let emerging countries pay their share for costs to maintain the globalized market.
Indeed, if this global situation is not viewed as large-scale class warfare, everything would look complicated. The matter is, ultimately, which pays taxes the rich or the poor to fix financial problems of each country. And, who enjoy credit created through the banking system and the central banks, the rich or the poor?
And the only resource we have to avoid this class warfare is religion. But, as it is so, sinful guys like to leave it looking complicated. That is why this global economic crisis looks so complicated.
SECTION I: Mt. Fuji's First Snowcap in 2011 Autumn
Mt. Fuji, Japan, was covered by a little snow for the first time this autumn.
It is one day earlier than the last autumn and six days earlier than normal autumn. The following pictures were however NOT taken by EEE Reporter.
Can't you see?
SECTION II: College Students Globally under Deflation
As of 2010, the university student employment rate in each country is as follows:
UK...15%It is very understandable that businesses need less and less college graduates due to advanced business environment with so many computers and so much computer software. Even in factories and plants, advanced laborsaving machine abolishes people-intensive jobs.
This is ultimately a phenomenon in the era of deflation but not of inflation. If one worker in an advanced plant pushed a button and then one million cars were rolled out, each could sell very cheap. Even the car maker has no need to pay salary to many workers except one. So an average salary in society would go down with prices of products going down. This is deflation.
Computer-based advanced technology causes deflation though there is a time lag in each country, according to its inherent situation.
Economists, journalists, politicians, and pundits as well as politicians of America and Europe have laughed at the "lost decade and another lost decade of Japan" in these years. But, they cannot understand why deflation became the norm in Japan. As I have discussed so many times here, it is China. If the world second largest economy faces suddenly another second largest, it will result in deflation inevitably especially when another is a cheap-labor force driven economy.
And, as I also wrote before, power of provision and production of mankind will expand more than not only human needs but also human desire. We will be able to produce and offer industrial products more than we desire. It is the ultimate state of deflation. And, this trend became real when Windows 95 OS was delivered to the market in 1995 with the Internet connectivity, as I also wrote.
So, wise are those experts in America and Europe who have never laughed at deflation in Japan or "lost decade and another lost decade of Japan." But, though not so sadly, there are only a handful of wise experts in Europe and America, to our surprise. Of course, some Nobel-Prize-class economists in America have been cautious in dealing with the Japanese economy. But, they still lack fundamental knowledge in culture and history as well as in religion.
So, I am writing for American students: "Forget about everything you have ever learnt, and follow Christ Jesus"; then they will be able to understand the global economy in the 21st century.

There is a woman in a tsunami-afflicted area of Japan who lost one of her children in the 3/11 Disaster.
Her daughter was in a now-famous elementary school, called Okawa Primary School, when 10-meter high tsunami rushed in the school to cover not only the playground but also its two-story building. Accordingly 74 among 108 pupils were died or missing, which was the most tragic single incident of tsunami damage on March 11, 2011.
So, the mother started to look for the dead body of her daughter, since police and other rescue bands could not find her daughter for weeks and months. She went to a driving school to learn how to manipulate heavy equipment. She got an official license to manipulate a bulldozer to upturn the ground in and around the school covered by debris and dirt the tsunami had brought. Then finally, she discovered part of the body of her daughter several months after the tsunami incident.
Now, she is still manipulating heavy machinery looking for dead bodies of other missing children.
The number of primary school children who lost their lives in the 3/11 Great Tsunami of East Japan was 234, though total 20,000 citizens lost their lives on March 11, 2011.
