Outlook for the Japanese economy in 2009.

January 28th, 2009 · No Comments

There is no doubt that the Japanese economy is suffering as a result of the global economic crisis. However much of the reporting in the western media is at best poor journalism and at worst, simply wrong.  So rather than focus on sensational attention grabbing headlines, let’s look at some forecasts and facts.

The inflation genie and the deflation goblin.

January 21st, 2009 · 4 Comments

Well it seems the inflation genie is back in the bottle and that the bottle is back in the cupboard. Therefore our wise leaders in Canberra have in less than 12 months gone from fighting inflation, to trying to stimulate growth and save the Australian economy from recession. Of course none of the economic problems Australia faces today have anything to do with government blunders, it is all China’s fault.

The G-20, bad news and further stock market falls.

November 20th, 2008 · No Comments

Well the market has continued to fall during the past few weeks and now I am starting to wonder if we will even see the bear market reach a bottom this year. You might recall I was counting on the market to rally by now so clearly events have not worked out as I expected. But there are reasons why we have not seen a major sustained rally and I think it is useful to look at some of these reasons in detail.

The real estate market in Japan – outlook for 2009.

October 21st, 2008 · 4 Comments

As most people will probably know, real estate prices in Japan collapsed in the early 1990’s as part of the damage caused by the bursting of the infamous Japanese bubble economy. Sadly for the Japanese economy, there was no magical recovery and the dizzying prices seen in the late 1980’s were never seen again. Prices dropped for years and Japan entered a period often labelled as “the lost decade”. (although the term seems a little harsh to me)

It hurts. It’s a Bear Market!

Nobody likes to see their investment portfolio decrease in value but for most of us, that is what has been happening now for most of 2008. The downturn in the stock market has hit everyone, from top fund managers to amateur stock traders and there must be a lot of nervous people close to selling out of the market.

For the record: July 2008

One thing that really annoys me about many financial journalists and market commentators is they often imply that that they have some unique insight into the market, yet they rarely disclose how they took advantage of their wisdom.

Investment Themes for 2009 and beyond.

May 5th, 2008 · No Comments

The current downturn in the world markets presents us with an opportunity to review or develop our investment strategy for the next few years. For some people it may mean a major overhaul such as moving from stocks to real estate, while for other it may mean just a realignment of stocks in a portfolio. In any case, it is a worthwhile exercise to review your investment strategy from time to time even if just to confirm what you actually own.
