Japan Says Goodbye to Chinese Globalism By James Reed
Globalism has always, at least in the late part of the 20th century been about Asianisation, mainly dominance by China. We have seen this in Australia, with first the propaganda machine getting going once multiculturalism had broken the back of Anglo-Australia, then with the Asianisation part of Asia ideology, then open endorsement of being a colony of China, prelude to total replacement. But, Japan is not going to way of cucked pseudo nations, and proudly is returning to nationalism:
“Japan has earmarked US$2.2 billion of its record economic stimulus packageto help its manufacturers shift production out of China, as the coronavirus disrupts supply chains between the major trading partners. The extra budget, compiled to try to offset the devastating effects of the pandemic, includes 220 billion yen (US$2 billion) for companies shifting production back to Japan and 23.5 billion yen for those seeking to move production to other countries, according to details of the plan posted online. The move coincides with what should have been a celebration of friendlier ties between the two countries. Chinese President Xi Jinping was supposed to be on a state visit to Japan early this month. But what would have been the first visit of its sort in a decade was postponed a month ago amid the spread of the novel coronavirus and no new date has been set. China is Japan’s biggest trading partner under normal circumstances, but imports from China slumped by almost half in February as the disease closed factories, in turn starving Japanese manufacturers of necessary components. That has renewed talk of Japanese firms reducing their reliance on China as a manufacturing base. The government’s panel on future investment last month discussed the need for manufacturing of high-added value products to be shifted back to Japan, and for production of other goods to be diversified across Southeast Asia.”
It is about time. Moves like this will trim a rather over-weight dragon down to size. It was getting so big, it threatened to crush the Earth. It needs a great big economic diet.
