11:21 am
same business and everywhere in these companies are suffering major consequences from a strong. when the national currency is up it pushes exports down japanese goods just too expensive to compete on the wild stage and its profits disappear so do people's livelihoods stagnant growth the strong man and the massive national debt some economists japan maybe all the theory has away from its own major economic crisis and since this nation remains the wells number three economy the consequences of. this is something japan's political leaders are determined to avoid and many are calling for urgent action. industry can probably enjoy the current seventy five year into the dollar level for a little while but if this situation doesn't change over a longer period i think we're going to see japanese factories and large companies
11:22 am
move their operations overseas places like vietnam thailand or china this would lead to a hollowing out of japanese domestic industry and creates unemployment japan is facing an extraordinary economic crisis. that despite the mores of ruling party lawmakers it is not clear there's anything the japanese government can really do to prevent the soaring from leaving japanese businessman stop. money. there in japan going in supply industry is gradually losing its ability to sell their products and machines to just. see the world faces these conditionals japanese companies have to look for whatever they can discover but that's not going to be easy in a country where the government itself the plea in the red japan has the highest national debt among major economies owing almost twice as much as the economy makes
11:23 am
in an entire year couple that with the funds needed to rebuild after the devastation unleashed by the earthquake and tsunami earlier this year and it seems japan is fighting a battle it may not be able to win she horrific math to r.t. tokyo now as thousands continue to protest across america as part of the anti corporate occupy movement the mainstream media is at pains to point out there's a lack of a unified agenda or a harshness returned to where it all started in new york to discover that every demonstrator has a special something to say to wall street. the protesters of occupy wall street are clearly fed up with wall street and with washington so what do you think they would have to say to their would be oppressors this week let's talk about that i would like to say you're human beings also do you see the suffering that people are going through you know what it's like we want the

11:25 am
a message for all these corporate bigwigs who are taking millions and not supporting their messages and so them my message is to make sure that these soldiers that are here that they continue to believe that this conversation is important and that these people are involved in a process to constructing a road where dreams are possible right now dreams are impossible in america for a lot of people these people need to believe that dreams must continue that's why we're here so it seems like the bottom line is the protesters are less interested in talking to wall streeters and washington themselves and more interested in keeping the conversation and the power among the people themselves. well short of the r.t. asks what we're going to do with the oil runs out which could be sooner than you think all bets are bad here on r.t. .
