All We Need Is Keeping Things Tidy and In Order.

As I correctly predicted beforehand, oil price has just begun to rocket in the market. This is also the case for other commodities such as gold. Besides that, Bank of Japan declares to finally introduce “negative interest rates”, which led the stock market in both Japan and the States to sharply go up. Well, ladies and gentlemen, this is the very beginning of the brand new phase heading to historical asset bubble and then hyperinflation even in advanced markets. Watch out.

Thanks to friendly assistance of Mr. HKD, my closest alliance partner, I’ve been capable of anticipating what happens in the market almost correctly. Even though I’m very, very proud of this capability other analysts never have, I’m a little bit frustrated and need to be inspired by something extraordinary. This is exactly why I met Mr. AN yesterday evening for intensive discussion.

Mr. AN is expert in “keeping things tidy and in order” or 整理整頓in Japanese. As for tidying-up, Ms. Marie KONDO is currently well known in not only Japan but US and Europe. However, Mr. AN is the most genuine expert in this field, since his way of tidying up is not limited just to your rooms and surrounding. What he’s doing is strictly based on virtues, values and practices in Japanese original Shinto (古神道). Mr. AN and I have a common Master of Japanese original Shinto who’s been training us for more than five years. The Master intentionally gives Mr. AN face-to-face lectures and trainings on keeping “spaces” tidy and in order, and me how to tidy up “times”. In this regard, Mr. AN and I am a pair of traditional “Wind God and Thunder God” in Japan.

While enjoying ourselves together in the city, Mr. AN repeatedly reminded me of the importance of keeping things tidy and in order in the Japanese society. The reason is, from his viewpoint, quite simple: When something is kept clean and in order, a genius protects it. Always being aware of doing so, we can find out any subtle changes around us and move forward. Because this rule is too simple for the human beings, almost everyone tends to forget it and accumulate all we don’t actually need in our life. This sometimes brings about negative ends such as misfortune, failure and even sudden death.

Mr. AN and I fully agreed with each other on the fact both Japan and the global community urgently need to dramatically keep things tidy and in order. To make the new world order emerge, we have to sweep away conventional structures we don’t need any more. We can apply this very, very simple fact to both “spaces” and “times”. While I’m expert for tidying up “times”, Mr. AN for “spaces”. He and I will begin to change the world together from the very near future, we firmly believe.

Imagine how smoothly Japan will go up after tidying-up. Stay tuned.

Welcome Back to 1990s.

Nikkei 225 soars again. Yesterday, it was added with more than 941 points. Still, the majority of retail investors in Japan seems to be awfully skeptical. They believe the current event to be just temporary, and keep on withdrawing their money from stock markets.

My institute, Institute for International Strategy and Information Analysis, Inc., is unique enough so that any other think tanks are never be able to copy what we’re doing: Quantitative plus qualitative analysis. In terms of the former, we particularly focus on the past. Because of “Power Law” and fractal as its corollary, the history repeats itself. Of course, what happened never happens again. However, structures which caused past events repeat themselves and lead us to face such similar events as we once experienced.

At this moment, our institute is terribly interested in a series of events in 1990s. Particularly, events which occurred from September 27 to October 2 in 1990. Why?

I just touched upon “structure”, which our human history is made of. In this regard, the phase is extremely important, because it includes three trends which are currently shaking the global community: “Crude oil price rocketed”, “Interest rates were raised”, and “Stock market collapsed after a long lasting surge. Based on that, our instituted correctly predicted yesterday morning that the Japanese stock market was about to rocket in a historical scale. What we saw yesterday in the market was just a beginning. From now on, we’ll continuously being surprised to experience dramatic recovery of the global stock market, especially, in both Europe and Japan till the end of the forthcoming February.

It’s fortitude in our minds that matters. Obviously, a large number of Japanese retail investors gave up in the latest turmoil in the market and are suffering from huge loss. Only those who have been capable of anticipating the very near future could maintain fortitude that helped them to remain seated in the market. This is just the beginning of total inflation: Getting started with recovery of crude oil price from January 28, everything will begin to become much more expensive than ever. This will revive the economy to a certain extent on the one hand, but on the other hand, the total inflation will destroy all the conventional systems in our society, economy and politics, as we faced in 1970s and 1990s.

If you personally want to get involved in the world event, just one week is left for you. As soon as February will come, the next phase of the human history will begin. Don’t hesitate, and just do what you wish. You’re always braced with force.

 

Vanishing Japanese Diplomacy.

Last evening, I had awfully pleasant time with my former colleague of MOFA, who’ s now in charge of economic affairs. He’s always been a nice guy and tells me what happens in the house. Since I’m globalist based on my mother country, Japan, and have nothing to do with official duties in the traditional meaning any more, I actually don’t need to gather such internal information. However, I just love to take pleasure in listing to gossips and untold internal affairs of the house. Since diplomacy is basically done behind doors, only those who have personal connections such as mine are allowed to enjoy themselves. As a former diplomat of Japanese MOFA, I have such an advantage to update what’s going on in the ministry.

This time, I had the feeling that the majority of MOFA’s officials have been becoming fully unsatisfied step by step with what they’re instructed to do at desk. Of course, you can find “unsatisfied guys” in any offices, wherever they are working. Nevertheless, the point is it occurred to me, “This time is different”. Even though diplomacy is sometimes a very, very tough job, works aren’t paid fully in the house compared, for example, to the financial world. What’s still left, is just jealousy and desire to succeed. Based only on them, all the members of the house are motivated to do hard works every day. It’s just crazy, but true indeed. Like rats in laboratory, they have to keep on running, running and running. Never stop. The game never ends.

I myself found out it was just a machinery that made the “best and brightest” of the Japanese society mentally disabled and incapable of connecting themselves with the outer world. Therefore, I voluntarily dropped out and began to stand on my own feet. At that time, elder colleagues scoffed and never believed my success in the business world. While my business has been expanded gradually, the number of former colleagues, who begin to admire me, has obviously risen regardless of their ages.

Now that the so-called “ABENOMICS” stagnates and makes us believe the moment of truth in terms of “GOJ’s default” might be approaching, my former colleagues seem to wake up and begin to find way-out. Some of them seeks possibilities to be elected in the forthcoming general elections in July, while others find jobs in academia. Of course, there are countless examples of Japanese diplomats who simply dropped out and became labor force in the private economy. Besides MOFA, you can find similar phenomena in METI, where almost 20 young career officials are said to wait for being approved to drop out. It’s a kind of irreversible disaster in Japanese bureaucracy, which will lead the whole society to stagnate further.

Heading to G7 leaders’ summit in Ise/Shima in July, the Japanese diplomacy is vanishing in terms of human resource management. This is just the very beginning of an ending story. Once Japan will show the reality of her default within (maybe) two years, you won’t be able to keep the “best and brightest” guys at desk of Japanese diplomacy any more. Even officials above director and DG levels in the house are building up frustration and said to fight against each other in Year’s end party, being irrational and resentful. Yes, this is the reality of Japanese diplomacy, which erodes.

PM Shinzo ABE and his chief of staffs, Mr. SUGA, never understand and know it, while they love to build up new (incompetent) organizations such as NSC and other intelligence units one after another in spite of financial and HR shortage. It’s only their own “political” legacy that matters to them. National interest per se is left behind.

Well, let’s see when the Japanese diplomacy will collapse soon. Sincerely hope my former colleagues won’t rebel against the “political” leadership by saying, “Give me more money. Give back decent life to me”. Stay tuned.

 

Gold Soars. What’s the Next?

In the financial market, everybody begins to talk about gold. Because Gold finally started to soar. Behind the door, experts of quantitative analysis say hedge funds and active institutional investors in Hong Kong, which recently have made huge profits by short selling in terms of Chinse mainland market, just begin with jumping into the gold market, and other innocent investors drastically follow. This trend seems to be one-way, that is to say, gold continues to go up not dramatically but steadily.

In this regard, the Saudis and Iranian succeed to play their roles given by the global community. Even though they’re fully aware of the fact that this is an intrigue set by the Westerners, they pretend as if they would fight against each other. By doing so, they’ve been pursuing only one goal: To let commodities soar in the market. Alea iacta est.

Now you may wonder, “What’s the Next?” In Japan, a series of so-called “experts” on international affairs and security policies love to refer to a beginning of the WW III, which I personally rule out. Since the Islam isn’t foolish anymore and closely coordinated with each other under the table to evade any serious conflicts. Particularly such Islamic nations as Iran and Saudi Arabia, which have shown brilliant endurance vis-à-vis covert actions of US and European countries, are capable of implementing sophisticated strategies. Having said that, I never exclude a proxy war between them, maybe in poor Bahrain is worked on. It’s not a real total war but symbolic event that matters. As far as this event will enable to shock investors all over the world, the regional powers of the Islam will be fully satisfied. Because crude oil will then begin to follow the gold’s trend and soar. The X-Day is been set on January 28, 2016.

In addition to that, you may not forget another on-going story: People’s Republic of China. Everybody is now blaming PRC for the worldwide collapse of the market. But what will happen, if PRC will suddenly show its economic “robustness” by leading her stock market go up sharply again. Well, PRC is a country of the “state-controlled and owned” capitalism, which won’t be never changed. Keep your eyes on copper market, which is usually affected by appetite of the Chinese enterprises.

To wrap up, I’d say this is the very beginning of the age of commodities, which will soon lead us to total and one-way inflation in the global market. Within two or three years, the next stage will have come: the age of hyperinflation and default domino. The critical date is approaching. Stay tuned.
