The same product, but slightly reduced in quantity. Of course, the price has risen a little, but companies are fighting for this 1g. The quantity of this product is probably unnoticed by the average consumer.
We are competing to get consumers to buy the product in units of 1 yen so that we do not notice the rise in the price of the product as much as possible. The competition is very fierce because the products come from various companies.
In particular, food products are dominated by low-margin, high-selling products. The unit price is cheap, so it’s very difficult.
I had a part-time job at a supermarket when I was a student. At that time, if a cake of 100 yen has a profit of 25 yen, it is very profitable. Yes, a profit margin of 25% is a very attractive product.
Even with this rise in prices, Japan will not buy up food. Corporate efforts to finely adjust prices and secure profits are considerable competition. If you lose this, you can take a share in cheap products such as unbranded products.
Therefore, in Japan, grocery buying does not occur. This is because if the price soars, the market share will be taken to other companies, which is extremely competitive.
However, as the world situation changes, it is still difficult for industrial products to reach. There is also corporate effort here. I remodeled the toilet, but this is also out of stock.
Therefore, companies are offering low-priced products with few parts. I made a small compromise on the product. In this way, Japan does not feel much price increase.
However, many do not have products. Therefore, we are increasing productivity by narrowing down the products without manufacturing many kinds of products.
For Japan, which has been deflated for a long time, there may be a feeling of foreign matter, but now I am doing my best. That’s because the big companies’ summer bonuses increase by 13.8%.
People say that it is inflation, but wages are rising to some extent, so it is more like a “price slide system” than inflation. In other words, if wages rise with rising prices, this is not a negative effect.
However, people are worried, so it is being considered to temporarily lower the consumption tax. This cannot be specifically mentioned by the government because of the elections. It is interesting to see how the ruling and opposition parties will fight the election.
Also, the exchange is very interesting. Every day, it is reported in the press that the yen has been depreciated. In my personal opinion, about 150 yen is acceptable. So I’m not so surprised. Certainly, there are disadvantages, but until now, the yen has been too expensive. I think that a little depreciation of the yen is good for Japan’s core industry.
Until now, companies have not survived without selling quantities. Therefore, the price of industrial products was also low profit and high sales. However, from now on, the sales volume will decrease while adjusting the price of the product. However, I think it is good for the environment because I will make an effort to secure profits.
There are also price increases such as electricity bills. People have to wait patiently for this until wages rise. That’s how the economy goes around.
In the United States, hyperinflation may come. However, the stock price has not fallen so much, so I feel that it is adjusting.
Assets feel solid, but when it comes to currencies, it may be better to be sensitive. This is true for countries around the world.
Japan still has a negative interest rate. However, although it was expected that interest rates in the United States would rise at the initial 0.5% pitch, prices are already rising sharply. It goes up to 0.75%. European central banks have also risen by 0.25%. In other words, it will increase by 0.25% to eliminate the expected amount. So, my guess is that Japan will also have a 0.25% increase in interest rates.
In this way, the world is linked. In the United States, interest rates have already risen, and some people may not be able to acquire or pay mortgages.
Knowing the bubble, I borrowed a mortgage at 4.75% and 6.5%. So, for this much, the US economy may have higher interest rates.
However, if the American economy, which has a great influence on the world economy, slows down, it will be a problem. It affects various countries.
Russia has already been sanctioned and the ruble has been eliminated worldwide. However, abundant resources are attractive to poor countries, and some countries do not follow the policies of the United States and Europe.
This is an economic division, which will be an economic cold war between the United States and Russia.
So Europe is in a complex environment. China and Europe share AIIB, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. Japan was also asked to join, but did not join. Japan and the United States have ADB and the Asian Development Bank.
However, Europe abandoned it and joined AIIB. The world was already divided. Russia has distributed a substantial abundance of resources to poor countries, and Europe is already economically seized by China.
So half-hearted Europe is already in the hands of Russia and China economically. Europe doesn’t have much time to be swallowed anymore.
The United States and Japan are cooperating, and the countries in the future will think about where to arrive while watching the situation. Anyway, the economic division has begun, so the tactics of Russia and China are quite wonderful.
Europe is attacked because it has no axis anywhere. I didn’t know this. As a coalition, it is important to unite in the future, but since we have already made bad choices, we will be attacked by various things in the future.
You will be in the most difficult financially and regionally. After all, the tactics at the beginning were not good, so I think it will be difficult in the future. Japan and the United States have a coalition and are united.
However, they are not hostile to each other, only their principles and claims are different. Because we are in a different framework, this is a good way to interact with China and Russia. Europe may be absorbed economically. It’s difficult to talk in detail. Europe may have to pay a big price to join AIIB.
This was actually a major company. Japanese companies have an organizational structure that lags behind the rest of the world. For a while, he is qualified to be called the MBA (Master of Business Administration) Master of Business Administration and Master of Business Administration.
The big company had executive candidates take MBA classes uniformly in order to get an MBA. Then, the same qualification test was given to all technical graduates and sales staff. Salespeople often already have similar classes at school. However, technical staff are conducting sales activities while supporting the technology. Therefore, in general, there is less time to spare than sales staff. Nonetheless, within the same period, they were trained and decided on executive positions based solely on their MBA scores, without considering the “technical background.”
Such rigid organizational management is a very rigid personnel affair. To become an executive, first of all, you are called a school scholar, and you are filled with your boss’s school. It becomes kind of closed. Certainly, you may be able to study. However, as a company, I find it difficult to become conservative and develop.
It does not destroy the company, but it does not develop. It is convenient to maintain a company, but it does not develop. Then, when trying to develop a company, it is quite difficult for a large company.
But the economy crosses national borders. Then, a major reform of the organization was carried out, and foreigners became CEOs. Then, those who became executives only with MBA qualifications were demoted. I feel it is a matter of course.
This is because it is common for people with MBAs to be taxi drivers overseas. Japan judges people based on their qualifications and academic background. No matter how hard the person tries, he doesn’t know.
His boss monopolizes that right, so anyone who can do better than himself gets power harassment, mentally hunts down and dismisses him. There was a person who went up like that. The person is asked by others, “Isn’t there a remorse for your conscience?” And asks the person who shreds after power harassment, “What do you think of me?” A very sly person reigned at the top.
However, the foreign CEO removed it. Very welcome to me. In Japan, the organization is rigid, so the economy is stable, but it does not develop. It may not be in Japan alone, but people in power harassment and black companies are unhappy.
I hope this rigid Japanese company will change more flexibly and independently, but it is quite difficult. The problem is that Japanese people have many mental illnesses. Up until now, I had plenty of time, but since I haven’t changed myself, my business will shrink. Because good people are crushed.
The economy is honest. The only way to develop is to have a foreign CEO reform. In this way, Japanese companies are changing now. This is good for Japan as well, and I strongly feel that we need to become a more open Japanese company in the future.
My family’s washlet broke down in 2021. So I decided to replace the whole toilet bowl. Certainly it will be around October 2021. Today is March 30, 2022.
But the toilet hasn’t arrived yet. At first, the answer was that overseas production was delayed due to infectious diseases. Still, it was said that the delivery would be in the summer of 2022.
However, as the world situation changes, I am worried that the toilet will be delivered. I was worried that the delivery would be really late, so I contacted a clerk at a major mass retailer while shopping.
The dishwasher wasn’t working well, so I wanted to talk to him. It seems that the delivery status differs depending on the manufacturer, and there was a person who waited for 5 months for the built-in gas cooker to be delivered. At that time, the world situation was still stable.
So maybe I haven’t delivered a toilet bowl for a while. Since it is made to order with payment in advance, it can not be canceled and I am paying but I can not do anything. Logistics around the world has stopped.
The world is in a very difficult situation. I’m also worried about food. The prices of various things are rising. Gasoline prices are rising sharply, so relatively cheap Costco gasoline is always crowded day and night.
The price is rising little by little. The salary does not go up, so I have no choice but to live simple life.
The government is probably the most worried about getting angry with panic.
Previously, some people resold it to make a profit and the masks were running out.
The internet is convenient, but there are people who do many things. So I can’t really write what I feel here.
However, the government is constantly sending messages to protect lives. Prime Minister Kishida said he would deal with the grain problem. I can’t write much here.
In 2021, there is one Chinese character that will be announced at Kiyomizu-dera every year. This year was “gold”. Certainly, with the new Corona sickness, people have been constantly in need of news, but their personal wealth has increased enormously. Personal assets reached a record high of 1,072 trillion yen. For wealthy people who couldn’t go anywhere, more and more money was saved, and this high stock price greatly increased their wealth.
Certainly, I think there are people who are in need of life, but the statistics show these results. So the country has big debt, but the people are different. In capitalism, the difference between rich and poor grows over time. It’s such a system. So people are very scared of losing wealth.
Because, if you reduce your assets, you will never be able to go to the upper ranks. Those who do not have large assets are dissatisfied. It will be just polarized. Japan has an inheritance tax for equality. But it instinctively feels that when you have an asset in money, it will eventually disappear by inheritance.
Therefore, the upper class leaves assets in academic ability, that is, “education”. I think this is probably the same in every country. This “education” develops individual abilities and leads to social success. Thus, once you have some assets, invisible inheritance takes place. This is “education”. The importance of “education” is understood by those who have received “education”, so “education” is inherited.
People who understand the importance of “education” are especially enthusiastic. Yes, “education” is important for personality formation and for winning society. Besides, since some intelligence is inherited, social disparity will widen. This is a very unequal reality. Therefore, society needs to equalize the opportunities for “education”. Creating this equal opportunity is very important.
This is because it is essential for everyone to be “educated” in order for society to be stable. It is very important to create opportunities to receive equal “education” as a nation in order to stabilize society. In this way, “education” creates the way society should be and even the social class. Therefore, it was 2021 when I felt the importance of “education”.
