Policies and business activities related to Japan investment opportunities-

● What the world can learn from Japan

 > “Quick changes may turn to a danger in an ageing society. Sustainability is now more important than growth. Slow shift might not be too bad.”

● Japan’s economy is stronger than many realise

 > “‘Maybe Western economists who were so critical of Japan circa 2000, myself included, should go to Tokyo and apologise to the emperor,’ Paul Krugman, an economist, tweeted in 2020. ‘Not that they did great; but we did much worse.'”


● SBI Holding’s stake in Shinsei Bank nears 48% after tender offer

 > “This is a complementary report on this transaction. Looks like FSA, or major shareholder Japan government had supported this to happen.”
