I feel like the term "crisis" is given to the problem by the media, and not actually by anyone in tune with the situation over there. They live on a small island and, for the size of the landmass, they've been horribly densely populated for the past 30 years or so.

This "crisis", if anything, will help them out in the long run, assuming the government prepares adequately for the changing tax earnings, and support costs

What population crisis?
>>
>>119500275
Come on anon, if the stupid jap goyim don't believe it's a crisis, how will they accept the diversity they so desperately need?
>>
>>119500275
I think you're thinking too simply about this. A population crisis usually refers to the fact that a large portion of the population will be leaving the workforce (retiring/dying) without adequate replacement, and that the seniors and people past the working age aren't going to have as much support from the younger generation. So that's the same mentality as saying that we should withdraw all support from Africa so that their population can diminish to manageable levels. Which of course makes sense, but it's still an inhumane way of thinking.

>>119500388

>>119500318
This. Germany now and its inherent cultural clash is the very reason why Japanese will never import a large portion of immigrants into their country. They already hate their Korean and Chinese migrants, how much more other novelty immigrants with less East Asian cultural tendencies?
>>
If I move to Nihon, can I expect to be hated forever? What do they think about westerners?
>>
>>119500395
Nobody cares about the japs either, that's why nobody felt bad about nuking them at the time. The point is, if Japan's birth problem is gonna be shoved in my face, why not just go for the larger issue, which is Germany.

I wonder how many of this is true and how many is bullshit.

I don't see a foreigner going to Japan to work there because he was called by a company/found work there previous to moving to be treated like shit.
>>
>>119500755
I've actually been to Japan and everyone was super nice, to the point where they offered to take our photos, cheering when I was trying to get a fig on one of those UFO catchers in Akiba, etc.
>>
>>119500838
It is about the same as any country. Most people don't care or don't say anything but a few people will outright say it to your face, a lot of Japanese people are passive aggressive so they may say things in passing that could be taken as offensive but they don't mean it.
>>
>>119500838
It's partly true.
Modern anime uses modern, western characters to remove the xenophobia that infected most people after the wars.
Old people wont buy this, but young people do. That's why if you should ever move to Japan, you will be mostly treated nice by young people only.
>>
>>119500891
If you're qualified for a job he's not then he is an idiot for calling you out and you should not care.
>>
>>119500838
The xenophobia isn't rampant but it does exist. People are super polite to each other in Japan, and tourists too, because they pride themselves on their manners. But there is some latent racism there, a good deal of it. This will come into play if you're ever looking for a job, for example, or trying to get a promotion at a current job, or meeting the parents of a Japanese girl you're dating. But most of the time it does a good job of staying hidden.

Completely normal.
But don't tell anybody you watch anime. If somebody asks, tell them you know about Ghibli.

The looking for a job would be kind of your fault.
No one moves a country before looking into jobs, unless you're desperate to move.
The promotion thing is probably true but it's like that everywhere (which doesn't make it better).
The last one is just normal. Imagine if Tyrone introduced himself as your daughter's boyfriend.

>myth
Not him but don't try to back peddle, I've been to Japan and the xenophobia is real. They aren't in your face about it but if they're sure you don't know what they're saying they'll bitch about gajin.
Not saying they're all cunts, I'd hate the gajin as a collective too, plenty are nice on a personal level once you get to know them but there is a resistance to outsiders. Don't be a weeb and try to warp reality for glorious nippon.

There was an article published somewhere saying birthrates are even lower than expected this year and are at the lowest they have ever been. Apparently more people are dying than being born at this point in Japan. Also apparently the elderly make up a majority of their population.

You'll probably be okay if you stay on the straight and narrow and don't look like a target for petty criminals. Japan's police are both totally useless and will NOT help you if you're victimized, and extremely brutal if you're a convenient fall guy for some crime with enough evidence such that they can't ignore it.

I dont understand how you guys think this is so simple.

"Lol some people die who cares? Than there will just be less people living there, whatever."

No. The problem is that there are going to be a shitload of old people who retired from work and the young people who need to support them. In the next few decades there will be WAY too many old people who already retired for the younger, much smaller generation to sustain. Thus Japan will have a lot of financial problems.

Much better than in the 90s anyway. It's because Japan has a sizable Iranian population (long story short, Japan in the late 80s needed a lot of cheap workers for their numerous construction projects, so because of some trade deal they had with Iran, workers could go there for construction work without a visa).
>>
>>119505661
Immigration can work, its just how you approach it. You need to be strict and only take educated people instead of taking in every asylum seeker and allowing them to freely rape your countries girl as they please like Sweden does.

There are a lot of east Asians on my university and they are behaving just fine. If you only take in these kind of people and reject people from Somalia who just want the welfare then immigration can certainly benefit a country.
>>
>>119505873
You should stop talking, little idiot.

Japan as it is now, is still overpopulated.
It's healthy that their population are shrinking.

Only Jew enterprises are concerned because the less people there are the less they can sell their consumer shitpig products.
>>
>>119503369
1. Population becomes wealthy enough such that struggle for food and safety is mostly mitigated.
2. Much like the rat experiment, birth rates decline and many members of the population devote themselves to asocial habits.
3. Population hits a critical point. In absence of external migrants providing aggression and competition, it sees a recession and returns to struggling for necessities.
4. Population recovers and the cycle repeats.

Well, what do you think is the purpose of TECHNOLOGY?

Japan is leading in the robotics departement.
If there is a nation that can handle the shift to aging population without relying on fucking immigrants, then it is Japan.

Let me say it again:

1.People are not that dumb to follow some shitty propaganda the economists and the government makes to get their population to breed like rabbits again. Especially with the extremly stressful average day for a citizen, where it is almost normal to work yourself to death.

2.Mass immigration is unreasonable
>>
>>119505682
>Japanese people aren't that stupid to listen to what their governments tell them to do.

Aha. Ahahaha. Oh, you have no idea.

Ok, let me explain how government works in Japan: the government tells the people about something, the people say "oh, ok then", and once in a while a scandal happens and the people freak the fuck out. Want to know why? Because the majority of the people genuinely don't have any idea how their government works, and just live on the assumption that the Diet (parliament) just does what government is supposed to do. They don't have Freedom of Information in Japan, aka the people don't have the concept of "right to know" on what the govt is doing in its day-to-day work. The people vote uninformed, that's why PMs get voted out so quickly for not MAGICALLY turning around a recession they've been in for almost 30 years now.

I think most of this "population crisis" alert stuff is made by shilling Jews who see their money cows dwindling away.

How retarded can people be to believe people of certain nations should breed more, when e.g. Japan in this case has the biggest Freeter sector of the World, where young people struggle to find stable environment.

What do you understand with vitality?

They pretty much live in little cages, space has always been a problem, they overwork, the young people struggle to find secure jobs.
What the heck is vital and healthy about that?
Don't you think an increasing population will make these problems even worse?

>>119507165
Well, people lose their shit and might go out onto the streets, but it has pretty much 0 effect as long as their living conditions don't get massively worse.

It works in Europe. The wealth has been distributed to the Top over the years with all the little financial crisis, people demonstrate and whatever, but still the course is set, so those demonstrations have 0 effects on it.
And even with knowing what is going on, the usual reigning parties get enough vote to remain the strongest force.
So, why should it even matter whether the citizens know what is going on exactly, when the result is the same?

ha, I was chatting with a friend of mine who lives in Kyoto, and we some how got onto the topic of Japan USA relations, and one of the things she pointed about what they dislike Americans doing when they visit, is being loud.


Aside from being loud, she also said that the biggest offender is people who come over and are rude about traditions and customs. Also, the constant comparisons between 'Well in America we do this and this'. Now, I don't know if this is much, but she also pointed out that when an American is asked where they are from, they typically say 'America', but should have said 'USA'. Seems like a really futile thing to worry about but oh well.

I'm pretty sure most people with JAPAN SUCKS horror stories are weaboos who went over there as full blown weebs and came back jaded as hell.

Though, i've been there for a week and it was just for hotels and meetings, hardly any free time at all, and everyone spoke english aside from a couple of the older guys who obviously understood english but liked having a translator there as some kind of power thing.

So i've not really seen the REAL japan i guess.

Terrible idea. It's what led to the 2008 recession. Lots of non-jobs, people buying houses and things they couldn't afford, suddenly everyone realizes that they don't actually have any money and their job is easily cut or replaced, and unemployment rises.

I guess it will give people 'experience' to work a real profession.

What would be better is if we had a new technology or industry and companies were willing to give jobs to the people in their own countries instead of third world peasants. Or if governments didn't nationalize them or tax them. Or set up a police state, seize the assets of the wealthiest, nationalize the companies and provide lots of work for people. And then try not to go to war or commit purges.

>>119511879
>Playing the devil's advocate, in the first place you'd be nurturing the populace which is already in the high income range.
It's the opposite. You can bring education to the poor if you actually care enough to do so. Most countries don't, so they cut education short and only deliver to the high income range.

And with war, half the money you don't have is going to Jewish arms producers, so you have to squeeze it back out of your poor population with taxes.

How comes the income inequality has been stagnant or slighty rising?

I am sorry, but there are enough articles and data out there that says otherwise, which should be true for most 1st World countries.

With all the recent "crisis" the only people who profited from it had been wealthy even before, while your average citizen has to pay for all of it through increase of taxes and whatever instruments there are like lowering the key interest rate which hurts the people who have a savings running in banks.
The interest rates got so low that they can't outweigh the inflation rate anymore, which means they are losing wealth.

Just as planned

My Engrish is not good enough to understand the meaning behind this sentence. So all this means those figures don't adjust housing costs?

Also

Growth in incomes at the top of the distribution has often been an important driver of increased inequality in recent years, and we consider the issue of top-income growth later in this section.

And for your little chart.

Holy shit, this thread.

>nippon having a decreasing population is a bad thing because economics says so
No, Japan is an overpopulated nation especially Tokyo and endlessly increasing population will do more harm than good in the long run. Only bankers and short-sighted economics would think that an ever-increasing population is ever a good thing, especially for a 1st world country with very limited land which have dozens of active volcanoes and earthquakes.

>but who'll pay for Grandpa
Old man doesn't retire from a company even if they are useless and/or senile because resigning/quitting a job is disgraceful. There are companies that still pays senile grandpas to sit in a room and do virtually nothing to not get in the way of others' works. They'll pay for themselves until at least 10 years from their deathbed.

>who'll replace those old people from working?
This would be an issue if getting a job is easy in the current situation, less population makes easier job hunting and that means less unemployed and unwilling NEETs.

And there's also this to consider:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Pq-S557XQU

If anything, nations with large population will all have labor problems and unemployment in the years to come, workers strike every other day and rising crime rate because jobs will be replaced by cheaper and more efficient automatons.
Decreasing one's population is just a way to prepare for the next inevitable technology revolution for Japan, which is also one of the leading nations in said technology advancements.

/pol/ can teach you better. Why won't you ask them? It all makes perfect sense if you bother to read the damn analyses. Enjoy yourself.

Your idea of poor is heavily skewed.
Their aren't moor poor people than anyone. They are a fringe minority. Very few people are making less that 10,000 USD a year.

*There aren't more poor people than people in other wage categories.
Not the point. Even if you aren't in the lowest group, you can still benefit from the system. The fact that most people aren't benefiting (very much) has less to do with the idea of socialization and more with the half-assed way it's done.

>The practice you mentioned is surely not universal. Of course big companies like Sony can afford it, but small-time employers cannot.
Obviously, but that still doesn't mean that the seniors are not taken care of. They'll be dead weight, but larger population doesn't mean that they won't be.
In fact, I'll argue that a smaller population will benefit more old timers in Japan's case.

In a overpopulated nation like Japan, there are far more workers/people than there are demand for them.
http://www.businessinsider.com/japans-unemployment-rate-hits-a-16-year-low-2014-6?IR=T&

A larger population only lowers the income of the average worker and therefore the amount of money they can spend for their elders.
Japan needs to lower their population to increase their employment rate, and subsequently their workers average income.
This is why the crazy work ethics in japan is a thing. And the reactionary NEETs that believes that working means losing in life.

And this doesn't considers the possibility of the automation revolution that is inevitable to happen sooner or latter.
Also, the current trend of decreasing population in Japan will only take real effect in the next 15-20 years for better or worse. And by then it's not far-fetched to assume the need of human workers will be at an all time low as technology advances.

Robots of japans will be similar to immigrants of Europes.
They'll take the jobs no one wants, except robots doesn't make social troubles and riots when they don't want to conform to the local cultures.

Pretty much this. If you don't imbibe, you might as well just kill yourself, because your colleagues will start shunning you. This is why Japan is #1 in suicides. Frankly, it's a shithole, I really feel sorry for people who live there, I really do. Living in that fucking backwards country, damn.

Even if their underpopulation problem is solved, they still have an overpopulation problem.

It was pretty wild when that started to kick in. It's surprisingly powerful. Clearly evolution has done its job.

Well the entire Eurozone does because they're the one functional economy that's carrying the rest of Europe's ass.

I genuinely feel bad for people who want to have a girlfriend/wife and are unable to get one due to whatever flaws they may have.

I also thank god every day I choice to avoid bitches and whores and I'm never stressed out about my sexual experiences
