Yes they do. However, manufacturing and the export of product is massive to Japan’s economy, especially automobiles and electronics. With the Yen value strong, the automobile manufacturers must move production out of Japan and into lesser developed countries like India and China, much as the US has done.(Note to the simpleton population that whores their lack of understanding regarding international finance applied to business via saber rattling about US manufacturing plants closing).

This can be directly referenced by Honda’s decreased domestic production RE autos, Mitsubishi’s component production, and Hirose’s increased production out of country.

This leads to higher unemployment and an overall economic strife to an already ailing Japanese economy. With China’s huge holdings of dollar reserves i.e. US Debt, they have to continue buying dollar denominated securities to maintain the value of those holdings. With the value of those holdings decreasing as we see now, the pressure to buy dollars will recede, the value plummets even more, and inflation rises. End result, exports “to” Japan increase i.e. exports “from” Japan become monetarily moot, thus leading to increased Japanese economic strife as referred to above.

The problem is, the US has always researched, invented, and developed and Japan would take it and run. With China beating everyone out, even they will have nobody to trick out the next hot item up for grabs. As soon as the US stated it's intention to green research, that pushy Chinaman was first in line to get a piece of the action.

Great post JJ, as usual. This sounds just like, and could just as well be the US. The only difference is our holding's seem to only be grandpa's money.

When we think of Toyota we think of hybrid. This is a funny thought. Toyota is screwed. Even Trucking can muster enough responsibility to admit this.
