But here is where I’m going to get really philosophical for a second. You see, we have the tendency to over estimate our finances. To think that you can buy a car for USD 100 000, or that you can afford to build a house for USD 10 million. We often think that we are financially secure, when in reality, the majority of our savings comes from the things we have no control over.
In my mind, I have been saving very little for the past few years. I had a few investments in the early days of my internet career, but they were all in the early stages of being considered viable investments. But since then, I have been forced to take out loans to cover the costs of living. This is especially true in Japan, where you are often forced to borrow money to buy things you can’t afford to pay for in the first place.
The problem is that we don’t have the tools to make our lives work for us. Even if we can’t afford to pay for things, we can’t afford to do them well. If we’re in the middle of spending money on a house or business, we don’t have the tools to get by on those items.
The problem is that money doesn’t always buy happiness. If we’re trying to live a lifestyle that is comfortable and doesn’t take money for granted, then we have to learn how to spend money wisely and not take on loans we don’t need.
So what do we do? We work on making our money work for us. We take loans or make investments that pay off in a positive way. We use our money to invest in the things we want to own or to buy a car that we want to drive. We invest in a community or charity that we feel is worthy of our support. We also take out loans to pay for things that we cant afford to buy right now.
One of the few times I’ve been a bit cynical about how the Japan tech scene goes about things, I was at a Japanese tech conference on the other side of the country. I sat in on a panel discussion moderated by a professor of business, where a panel discussion was held. The professor decided that the panel’s topic was how to get people to invest in Japanese companies.
The professor also noted that the big Japanese tech companies are all about getting you to invest money into their companies. That is, the companies don’t want to invest in companies that dont do what they say they will. He noted that many of the companies that have been building up in Japan are not actually doing what they say they will, and the people that invest in these companies are just the ones that were selected based on the people they want. He described the process as “fraud.
“For example, the biggest winner in the Tokyo stock exchange is an investment company that does not have to pay dividends or show how its assets are being used. Those that earn their money by investing in the companies that do not pay a dividend or show how their assets are being used do not really have to live by the rules. That is what we call fraud.
What it comes down to is that some people have no idea that the rules exist. That’s why we need to be careful. The people that invest in these companies are just the ones that were selected based on the people they want. The people that earn their money by investing in the companies that do not pay a dividend or show how their assets are being used do not really have to live by the rules. That is what we call fraud.
It’s great that they do not have to live by those rules as they’re part of the company’s financial viability. But it’s a little bit disturbing that the company’s stock price has dropped significantly. At the beginning of the year, the company’s stock price was up at 100 000 yen. Today it’s down to around 70 000. That’s a drop of 30% in a few days.
