Japan Foreclosed Property 2015-2016 - Buy this 5th edition report!

Over the years, this ebook has been enhanced with additional research to offer a comprehensive appraisal of the Japanese foreclosed property market, as well as offering economic and industry analysis. The author travels to Japan regularly to keep abreast of the local market conditions, and has purchased several foreclosed properties, as well as bidding on others. Japan is one of the few markets offering high-yielding property investment opportunities. Contrary to the 'rural depopulation' scepticism, the urban centres are growing, and they have always been a magnet for expatriates in Asia. Japan is a place where expats, investors (big or small) can make highly profitable real estate investments. Japan is a large market, with a plethora of cheap properties up for tender by the courts. Few other Western nations offer such cheap property so close to major infrastructure. Japan is unique in this respect, and it offers such a different life experience, which also makes it special. There is a plethora of property is depopulating rural areas, however there are fortnightly tenders offering plenty of property in Japan's cities as well. I bought a dormitory 1hr from Tokyo for just $US30,000.
You can view foreclosed properties listed for as little as $US10,000 in Japan thanks to depopulation and a culture that is geared towards working for the state. I bought foreclosed properties in Japan and now I reveal all in our expanded 350+page report. The information you need to know, strategies to apply, where to get help, and the tools to use. We even help you avoid the tsunami and nuclear risks since I was a geologist/mining finance analyst in a past life. Check out the "feedback" in our blog for stories of success by customers of our previous reports.

Critical thinking in the Philippines

Share |

The Philippines is for the most part a country of uneducated persons whom are exposed to a limited range of beliefs. Religion is well-entrenched, so there is little questioning of religion. That is not to say you cannot have a discussion based on reason; its just not very often that you get that far. A great many pastors have a knowledge of philosophy, but its generally only enough to rationalise their existing beliefs. Seldom does rational discussion reach a level where a person is willing to repudiate god. The reason is that most atheists think that Christians, indeed most theists, are open to a logical refutation of their values. They are seldom able to do this because their beliefs are not founded on reason, but rather intrinsicism. That is not to say they give no credence to rationality; the problem is that they give greater value to intrinsicism.
If you are interested in atheism and critical thinking, you can view the contents of my website, or you can purchase one of my books when they become available, or you can join this Philippine based group which are advancing critical thinking and atheism. I have no knowledge of this group, so I am always interested to know how you get on. The reality is that the Philippines is a mix of Asian and Western values, so the respect for logic can be a little superficial, as I found with one admirer or Ayn Rand in the Philippines. Values are deep-seated. There is a great deal of depth underpinning your values, which even philosophers struggle to grasp. This is why philosophers have failed to have much impact on people over the years. They have failed to develop a values system which has resonated with people. This is what I intend to deliver in coming years. In the meantime, if you are in the Philippines, visit this group of critical thinkers. Sadly, you will hardly learn to think critically from your parents or your educational institution, nor from the media, whom I routinely refute. If you are yet to be convinced that there is no God, I would encourage you to visit my blog on religion. In due course I will release books on such topics which will describe my values in a more coherent and comprehensive fashion. You can visit my shopping cart when the time comes.

Deforestation in the Philippines

Share |

The Philippines government has halted logging in 6 provinces according to the following ABS News article. Of course given President Nonoy's track record, one does have to wonder whether these logging restrictions are less about deforestation in the Philippines, and more about extortion of money from loggers. There is a long history of such political extortion in the Philippines. There is a legitimate need though. The opportunity to 'appear' to do something about over-logging, and the fact that the President 'appears' to have acted 'decisively' might be more important important than the reality in a country where facts are inaccurate, and ignorance is ubiquitous. i.e. commonplace.

There are similar efforts by provincial and national bureaucrats to extort wealth from miners. The problem in the Philippines is that everyone has the opportunity to extort some kickback in this country. Just look at how many mining projects are behind target. Generally miners are able to commission a project ahead of schedule, particularly given the softening in global economic activity.
