End of Abe era leaves Japan still searching for way forward

"Your Shahida Suda as the country's new prime minister on Monday. 71 year old Mr Suder was overwhelmingly elected as the leader of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, replacing Shinzo Abe has dominated Japanese politics for the past eight years. Mr was expected to serve until the end of next year, but announced suddenly he was stepping down last month, pleading poor health. There's now concerned that Japan could be about to return to what became known as revolving door politics when the country changed Prime Minister's almost every year, Rupert Wingfield Hayes reports. Yeah. You see that pit shuttle get this's something No one would have predicted even a few weeks ago. 71 year old Yoshida super being proclaimed leader of Japan's all powerful Liberal Democratic Party. And by default, the country's new prime minister. Mr Sugar is not known for his charisma or his oratory. And as he made his rather ponderous victory speech, you can hear why you know anybody. Ronnie. Still cocaine. I want to break down bureaucratic divisions invested interests, he says on the blind adherence to president indication to form a cabinet that will work hard for the people. That takes a kike Agos, Cary Most Japanese, No, Mr Sugar as Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's long serving grim faced spokesman Up till now. He has always been a backroom guy. A fixer. He has none of the charm or diplomatic skills. Mr Abba used TTO win over President Donald Trump. But according to those who know him like economists and long term Tokyo resident Yes, Bacall, Mr Sugar brings other attributes to the game. Here is a man who gets up at five o'clock in the morning. Does 100 sit ups and then reads all the newspapers and by 6 30. He's starting meetings right with business people with advisers, you know, with outside economists, he absorbs like a sponge and wants to get things done for the country. He's not interested in any of the glitz or blink that comes with war nongovernment. The problem for Mr Suder. Is he has no mandate from the Japanese people. His elevation to the top job was a stitch up by L. V P. Party bosses in smoke filled back rooms. Perhaps because of that much is being made of Mr Segers Humble background. The son of a strawberry farmer, he worked in a cardboard factory to pay his way through college. He's certainly very different from most of Japan's recent prime ministers like Mr Abbott, the silent of a powerful political dynasty, but in the scheming world of Japanese politics Rashid, a circus. Humble origins could also be his undoing. According to Professor Koichi Nakano of Tokyo's Sophia University. Mr Silva comes from a humble background. He really doesn't have his own power base. You know, he doesn't belong to any faction on DH. He actually, you know, Rose to power because he was Mr B's preferred choice on the party bosses rally behind him, You know, emergency situation. But once the emergency situation is gone, and once the party bosses study realized that they're not getting all they wanted. I'm sure there's going to be past trouble. They're both from

Far-right Norwegian politician nominates Trump for Nobel Peace Prize

"I mean, if there was ever a stupid decision made in the White House, it had nothing to do with Covad. It was letting Donald Trump sit down with a media assassin like Bob Woodward, who's never given anybody affairs shake if they haven't are beyond their name. Uh, the rials story. To be honest with you is that Donald Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Love him or hate him. Seems like it's probably a pretty good idea that he should be contemplated for that prize. John Decker's or Fox News correspondent from the White House this morning. What's the reaction? At the White House, John Well, I got the reaction firsthand. I was the only reporter personal. I broke this story yesterday and write about this news, and I said I didn't sit down. We didn't interview outside the Oval Office, socially distance standing up on got the reaction from the president and believe it or not. He was honored and humbled that you don't hear the word humbled on President Trump in the same sentence, but he did express some humility. It's not every day that a U. S president gets nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. This is for 2021, so we won't know whether the president won the prize until October of next year. But this is for the president's efforts in helping to broker peace between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. And fact there's gonna be a big ceremony at the White House is signing ceremony on Tuesday of next week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be there his counterpart. From the way he will be there as well. This is obviously a big, I think diplomatic victory for the president. Have there been reactions from other world leaders or people kind of being quiet about this kind of beer? Did you know you don't hear this? Remember this nomination? It's not as if the president has won just yet. There's only been four U. S presidents in our history who won the Nobel Peace Prize. Uh, so maybe premature, so I do know the president has been nominated before by another world leader. That's the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for the president's efforts in trying to bring peace to the Korean Peninsula, so this is not necessarily anything new for the president. But this comes on the heels of what is an historic peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. It is pretty remarkable. And I think even his critics if they were being honest would have to say this is something that that President Trump Take the election of frenzy out of it that he should get some credit for that. It's pretty remarkable. Well, you know the deal that was reached between the U. S A and Israel again if you have if you're objective about it, regardless of whether you have an R or a D After your name, it was historic, and it is a big deal and other Arab countries.

How The Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Affected Energy Industry In Japan

"On your it's not easy to get rid of nuclear power. Okawa is right. Taking apart. A nuclear power plant is not easy day CI has been in the Decommissioning process essentially since the disaster. And that means every day over 4000 workers stream into the plant, clocking in To tackle a vast array of problems. The radiation levels here are much lower than they were nine years ago. In most areas of the plant, you could walk around without special protective gear down by the reactor's, though the ones that exploded levels are still high, and visiting time to them is limited. Kozo Takahashi are TEPCO guide takes us down to see them, bringing into stark reality the challenges that TEPCO has faced here since the disaster. Crews of workers are bustling around in full protective suits. Takahashi points out each reactor, each with its own set of problems. He says a new robot had to be invented to get to melted fuel in one another had to be essentially rebuilt just to take it apart again. And then there's the problem of waste your time here at GH Eve, huge amounts of water pumped into the damaged reactors every day to keep them cool. In the end result is more than one million tons of that water piled up in storage tanks contaminated with radioactive trillium. Storage space is running out, and the Japanese government is considering dumping it all into the ocean, much to the dismay of local communities worried about environmental impact. This is all just a taste of what it means to decommission Daiichi, which will take an estimated 40 years and nearly $200 billion to produce no electricity. At all. The rest of Japan's nuclear power program isn't faring a whole lot better by 2011 nuclear power produced nearly a third of the nation's energy. But after the disaster, the Japanese government imposed new safety regulations that took every nuclear reactor off line. All 54 of them, and the Japanese public largely wants to keep it that way. Anti nuclear power sentiments friend rapidly after Fukushima. It was a very Great sense of betrayal. Alexander Brown is an Australian researcher in Japan. He studied the anti nuclear power protests that took off in 2011. He says that betrayal came largely from the fact that Japanese people had been assured that nuclear power was safe that no accident would ever happen. So it was much more than just about Ray, you have to pull out all the specifics of the accident itself. Huge protest broke out in Tokyo, tens of thousands of people marching through city streets and bright costumes, banging drums and Cymbals. And, of course, chanting the main slogans. Just give that one time we opposed nuclear power. The's big protests continued for months and spread to other cities. And even now, there's still protests everywhere. They're smaller, Brown says. And maybe not quite so eye catching, but it's sister and it's not going away. Which has left Japan in a kind of energy conundrum. With all those reactors offline, a lot more coal and natural gas had to be imported energy prices have gone up. As have greenhouse gas emissions. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his party have been pushing hard to restart the nuclear power program promising safety But needing to bring down costs and tackle climate change. The government on YouTube keeps saying you could apply the cheapest parcels. People don't trust it anymore. Tatsuo Suzuki is a former nuclear engineer and now professor at Nagasaki University. He says that the disaster and Fukushima made people completely rethink the cost of nuclear power. In broader terms, the social costs ofthe separation in the family. Losing the land losing their jobs. How can you measure all these impacts estimating the risk of nuclear power, But Suzuki says the choice is still a difficult one. When you factor in climate change and needing to reduce the use of fossil fuels, he equates nuclear power with a strong medicine that also has a potentially strong side effect. So which you will choose You may have to choose the nuclear power eventually means Clement chain is absolutely event for the world so the world may have to take medicine on nuclear power. But we have to very, very careful. And you have other choices. I would recommend the nuclear policy last Japan doesn't have a lot of other choices. Slowly, A handful of nuclear reactors in the country have restarted passing new safety regulations. Many more are held up in court battles as local governments refused to take the risk, and even more are slated to be decommissioned as utilities give up on them altogether. Back in Fukushima near Daiichi nuclear worker Kazu Okawa stops the car. And gets out to look at a site. He never thought he'd see tons of radioactive topsoil scraped from the Earth during the cleanup efforts being piled high next to the road. This is in Futaba, his old hometown, where much of the land has been slated as a storage site for this contaminated soil. Okawa says he'll never come back even if evacuation orders for the town are eventually lifted. Another guy who wants to live next to this. This nuclear waste. He shakes his head, almost in disbelief that I thought nuclear power was safe. Isn't thought it was 100% safe. But now, like a lot of Japan, he doesn't want anything to do with it. I'm afraid of nuclear power. In one moment it devastated our home is your home and now, Ochoa says he's 100% against it. Cat Langsdorf NPR NEWS Fukushima, Japan

The yen one of 5.87 Nathan Karen, we begin with the final night of the Republican National Convention where President Trump look to stoke fear about Joe Biden in the White House. We have spent the last four years Reversing the damage Joe Biden inflicted over the last 47 years president spoke from the South Lawn of the White House in front of about 1500 supporters sitting nearly shoulder to shoulder almost non warm, asks. The president called Biden a Trojan horse for socialism and painted his first term as an unqualified success. The president's remarks, like others this week, also addressed the issue of race. I have done more in three years for the black community than Joe Biden has done in 47. Here's the president's speech was the second longest in history, though he largely sidestepped the pandemic. He mentioned Joe Biden by name 41 Times, casting the former vice president as a puppet of the left. Joe Biden is weak. He takes his marching orders from liberal. Hypocrites who drive their cities into the ground while fleeing far from the scene of the records. President Trump made just a glancing reference to protests this weekend. Kenosha, Wisconsin, while reminding supporters what's at stake this November. This is the most important election in the history of our country. The acceptance speech wrapped up with fireworks on the National Mall, with some spelling out Trump and 2020. The speech appeared aimed at making the election a referendum on Joe Biden instead of the incumbent president. We get more from Bloomberg White House reporter Mario Parker, He looked to differentiate himself from Joe Biden on crime, immigration trade. He also kind of alluded to unrest in Kenosha, Chicago. Without really talking about the root cause of some of President Trump Look to paint Biden as a Socialist with a speech offering a stark choice for voters, according to Iona College professor Jeannie's A. No. They're presenting such vastly different pictures of reality. You have the president out there acting as if he's not president of the United States and the violence that's going on in places like Wisconsin. Has nothing to do with somebody else's problem in somebody else's fault, and he's going to be elected and fix that right. And then you have the Democrats with their own view as to how things were going, so I'm just struck by how different if you watch these two events, how different the reality is. President also misrepresented some abidance positions, most notably on immigration and energy policy. Rick Davis is a political contributor for Bloomberg and former campaign manager for John McCain will be a lot of debate over what was and wasn't an exaggeration. Or, as the president likes to call hyperbole. I did find one thing in the speech that I think everybody in the country agrees with both Republicans and Democrats. And that is, he said that this is the most important election in the history of our country. And I have absolutely no doubt that's gonna find unanimous consent more inside an analysis on the president's speech 10 minutes from now when we speak with Greg failure, chief U.

He told the crowd that if he's reelected, the best is yet to come. He mentioned Biden's name 42 times, calling him weak and completely in the dark. Joe Biden is not a savior. Of America's so He is the destroyer of America's jobs. And if given the chance, you will be the destroyer. Of American greatness.

We really saw those July SL minutes somewhat pushing back on prospects of control, and I think that really raises the life of Outright food guidance on average inflation targeting really becoming thie policy killers for the Fed in in the future, So we have a guest. The commitment to keeping the funds rate close to zero until we have inflation between or even exceeding their 2% target on I think, with a period of above 2% inflation being tolerated. Really is an offset to inflation running below 2% so long pry under the guise of average inflation targeting then he really have a clear signal that the feds are going to tolerate inflation above 2% on DH that they're actually aimed for that outcome, And I think that's going to be really particularly people, I guess really real.

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, be the target of health speculation surrounding a couple of hospital visits, intends to hold a news conference on Friday in Tokyo in San Francisco. I'm Ed Baxter, Rish. Thanks a lot for that. Let's get back to guess itself and Tereza Cong is a portfolio manager in Matthew's Asia, discussing latest on the markets A Teresa asking whether we're being a bit complacent about inflation, and we look at the latest Inflation numbers coming out of both the United States and the UK, both surprising on upside in both those countries cool consumer prices, Ex food and energy year on year exceeded estimates by the economists surveyed by Bloomberg in its entire history by the greatest ever amount. So are we being complacent? Possibly. But my My bet is that over the long run, we're still in a structurally low interest rate environment. And here's why You know the key drivers of our low rate environment. It's really turned by things. They're very long term. Talking about agent population. We're talking about lower sort of heavy growth and even things like inequality and lower public investment. So all the things are here to stay now, over the next 3 to 6 months could interest rates go up to reflect the higher inflation expectations? Certainly What if us and your yields go back of about 11.2%? I would be getting long in there. So I do think in the short term inflation might be an issue. We think over three and a five year perspective, we think that raise a very wealthy. I know you guys air very much focused on Asia and China, Hong Kong in particular. We just heard of Baxter's say that we've got a little bit of unease and restrictions here. That's happening kind of slowly. One thing that's happening fast is Thies. I pose And you probably heard us do the news on and group. Ali Baba jumped. I mean, we had Ali Baba up 3.6% in the U. S session. Is this something that you're trying to do to really take advantage of? And if so, how We will continue to be I pose out of Chinese companies were both new ideas as well as companies that are listening from the United States being private and probably re listening in China at some point, the future. I think this is just part of the structural deepening of the capital markets in China, so we should look at the market cap of China relative to its overall GDP, its still a fraction where the U. S stands or where Europe dance. So we see this as a really a structural trend and yes, there will continue to be very good company Come out China. As well as some companies have probably weren't a little bit more delicious. Well, absolutely one wouldn't expect anything less here. So how does it lose the dial with regards to your investment strategy? I think overall, you know, we look at a very long term. And if you just focus on the fact that China has had very much of the ship recovery And it puts on a trajectory that is actually above where it would have been compared to the rest of the world as you know us and your continued to experience these ways of Covitz. You know, we think that the stories actually, you know, quite positive in China. Despite a lot of the short term, you know, us bashing that's been going on under the current Political under the current political election. Yeah, part of that's the delisting of Chinese companies. That's one reason why Ali Baba has been pretty hot here in Hong Kong is that people are moving money from holding the shares in New York to here. That's a process that we can probably play over and over again, right? Absolutely, you know, there's certainly no dearth of capital would be happy to be put to work in his jurisdiction like Hong Kong. And with the risk, you know that are out there with respect to no trump threatening the potential the listing off change companies here in the ice. You know, it is a thing that we continue to see with Chinese companies on the margin, maybe choosing to live in a place like Hong Kong over that of the United States. All right. I mean, you can't expect probably the US administration ahead of the election to continue to vilify China. So that's pretty baked in but is a Biden victory being big and very, very, very quickly. That's a really good question. And what I personally think is that US fashion of China is likely to be here even after the election. You know, there's no doubt that there will be more certainty with a democratic government with expect to just walking the talk, but I don't think we.

Putin told reporters later that he and air Do on discuss ways to stabilize the Syrian conflict. The two strong men have not always seen either. I regarding Syria Turkey has at times been more aligned with the us but ever since President Trump's signaled that he wants US troops out of Syria and demanded protection for America's Kurdish allies their turkeys been more inclined to turn to Putin to talk strategy in Bremmer is a writer and foreign policy commentator who heads the Eurasia group, a political risk research and consulting firm in what is rhetoric tie of everyone need from Vladimir Putin. He needs some sort of understanding that Turkish presence on the ground in Syria will be tolerated and that they can a limit the operating capabilities. Of the Kurds on the ground who they consider to be the Turks due to be a terrorist organization. So let's put a pin in weather. Putin will give everyone that security cover for a moment because at the start of their meeting today Latimer. Putin addressed everyone as dear friend. So let's dig into how their relationship is. How have a friend is heir to want to put in a lot better than it was. I mean Turkey is barely an ally of the United States right now in terms of like interests in the region type of political institutions inside Turkey is becoming affectively authoritarian state. I mean, they're real problems with the NATO relationship, but Russia and Turkey actually today get on pretty well. It's important economic relationship. Lots of Russian tourists that actually go to Turkey and a fair amount of interest insecurity in the region. And in fact, even you have the Turks trying to buy Russian components for their military operations, and as a NATO ally, that's kind of unheard of. Right. But in. Speaks to the important relationship that Putin and Arte one have managed to cobble together. So how would you describe the security zone that aired on wants in northern Syria? What what's the point the point would be both a permanent presence of the Turks on the ground that can't be threatened? It allows them to defend their border and to ensure that there is not movement of arms or individuals that they can't control again, including those Kurds on both sides of the border. And it also is a base of operations where the Turks can launch against Kurds in Syria. If they so choose, and certainly they've been moving in that direction. So when a in wretched type air to one, and we got these two strongmen very type A when they get into a room together. Do they play? Nice nice. As it more pit bulls and beating chests I've in both the answer is both and depends on when you catch him. I mean, look when when that Russian military jet was shot out of the sky by the Turks in two thousand fifteen so in less than four years ago that relationship went from hero to zero literally overnight. I mean, they were friendly. There was a robust economic set of relations diplomatic relations were fine. And suddenly, they were it was complete blockade, you know, pretty much overnight. And that was an enormous that reflects an enormous amount of arrogance on the part of both of these leaders who never can be wrong about anything and their advisers can't really get them off the ledge. I mean, you know, Erta one famously just blows his top people you remember, DAV? Devos when he got angry at journalists stormed off and left, right. Just took off and said, I'm having none of this and had rapturous support when he showed up Putin. Of course, keeps world leaders waiting. He left. I remember Marco left waiting for almost an hour. Once the pope the Queen, right? I mean, and that's the power play. When you have two older men that behave like that in positions of power this. It's obvious that they're either going to be completely best friends or the relationship is going to be flying disaster. And right now, it's it's on the friendly side. This is a budding bromance right now. And I'm sure it'll go fine until it is in Bremmer has the Eurasia group and is a frequent writer on US foreign policy. Thank you. Ian next. President Putin also met this week with Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to talk about the curl islands which both Russia and Japan have claimed for decades now since World War Two, basically. But the culture on the islands that has elements from both countries Charles Maine's was just at Sakhalin island, which is nearby the carols. This is what he saw going to this place traveling around the island. You can see these remnants of Japanese culture old graveyard, some some architectural pieces around the island, but essentially just get this reminded of this shifting fortunes of empire. I mean, you have this territory that was part of imperial Japan that was part of SARS Russia later Soviet rule. And you know, all these wars, all these treaties. They've shaved the island's history. And they've also carried lives, of course in their wake. So people like must Yosi Suharto. Three. It was just sort of. He's a suckling resident who's ethnically Japanese. He was born there raised in Japanese controlled part of Sakhalin. And when he's seven years old that all changes. So we'd forces retook the island in after the closing days of World War Two, of course, then taking the nearby Carrillo islands as well. And so young he adapts he learns Russian and he later joins the Soviet army to guard against the Japanese. Is joe? So what's my saying there and he's speaking Russian speaking Russian? Yeah. So he he's saying essentially that when he was a service when he was serving in the Soviet army. He said, you know, they used to have these drills, and they make all these jokes saying the Japanese were coming from over there and these practice drills, and they say, what do you mean? He's coming. They're coming. Look there's one right next to us. And he'd say, you know, they'd all joke about that. Because of course, here's this Japanese guy among these Soviet soldiers. So the Russians who support the claim to these islands. There's a group that seems interested in the business opportunities like professor surrogate crooked pinko who seems to be holding onto Soviet values. What did you hear from him? Well, yeah. I mean, these days, of course, you talk to locals there. They like to tout Sakhalin's growing economy and integration in the region. But it's important to point on this a long way from the days when it was a Soviet territory that was closed outsiders. So Sergei Prokopcuka. He's a professor at suckling state university, which is. Let's professor Prokop incurs saying that you know, he was he was part of the Soviet Union. They were developing the city's factories on suckling and people who came to work and live there. You know, when he was a schoolboy, for example, he was not interested at all if they had some relations with Japan or not. So let's come back to the curl islands. This other set of islands being disputed today by Russia, and Japan, they're kind of to the east of the Sakhalin islands. What are the stakes around the curl islands? This is kept the two sides at loggerheads for over seventy years. Now, what's been interesting in this past several years Shinzo obey the Japanese Prime minister, Vladimir Putin Russian president, and that many many times trying to figure out a way out of this is trying to sort of centrally find an agreement somehow this is something of a mission for Mr. obey his in its with good recent. His father was a Japanese politician who was then at one point the foreign minister back in the early eighties. A he tried to negotiate this deal. Couldn't do it in failed. His grandfather was also involved with this. Back in the nineteen sixties, and essentially, so it's kind of this family attempt to her as Mr. obeys been trying to find a way to settle this issue. The problem is that he's fighting against Moore nationalist forces within Japan who don't want to cede any of this territory to Russia. Why does Vladimir Putin wants this territory? I mean what's his game here? First of all he's interested to degree in some kind of agreement because there's opportunities to develop the far east Russia's made this imperative in their their policies to try and develop the economy in the far east, and he would certainly be interested in investment projects from Japanese major business companies on the other hand. Mr Putin has also made restoring the Russian empire part of his kind of a major theme through his rule and look at for example, after the annexation of Crimea. This is of course territory that once belonged to Ukraine that the Russians have an in two thousand fourteen after that, Mr Putin's ratings went through the roof here at Rome, and it's interesting these days to see that public opinion is highly again. Against the giving away any territory back to Japan, we had protests by nationalist Moscow is Mr. obey and Mr Putin met here in Moscow the other day with the rest and just anecdotally when I was in Sakhalin just talk to people, and they would say time, and again that they were against this idea of giving back any territory to Japan, Charles Maine's in Moscow. Thanks very much for telling us what you found out in the Sakhalin islands. Appreciate it. Thanks Markelle so disputes between countries can also come home to roost at home for those governments the government in Greece was on the receiving end of that just a few days ago..
