Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, who is visiting the United States, will supply Japan with an additional vaccine for the new coronavirus in a telephone talk in Washington with CEO Albert Bourla of US pharmaceutical company Pfizer on the morning of the 17th. Request to do. It seems that they have virtually reached an agreement with Pfizer.
In response to this, Taro Kono, Minister of Regulatory Reform, announced earlier that he will receive additional supply from Pfizer in the United States by the end of September 2021.
With this, as early as September, the vaccine will be distributed to all Japanese people, and there is a strong possibility that they will be able to return to their previous lives.
Can the Japanese economy recover in a V shape?
Some companies with poor performance have been restructuring by taking advantage of the new corona epidemic. And restaurants and the like are forced to open short hours and are closed, so they can no longer take care of their employees.
On the other hand, companies related to decarbonization and new energy are in a great success with funds from countries all over the world.
The economy is undergoing a complete dichotomy between winners and losers.
In addition, the Japanese government is calling it a countermeasure for the new corona, printing “money” in a jerky manner and issuing tremendous government bonds to inflate the deficit.
There is no problem if the national subsidy (money) is evenly distributed to the people, but “money” has lost its destination and has begun to stray into the “stock market” and “virtual currency”.
Whereabouts of Japan
With the spread of the new corona vaccine, the Japanese economy is showing signs of recovery. However, the gap between “winners” and “losers” becomes noticeable not only among companies but also among individuals.
And we expect that “inflation” and “deflation” will occur partially, resulting in an economy that has never been experienced before.
Following today’s coverage, tomorrow’s Nikkei average will also rise. From an individual’s point of view, those who have surplus “money” can make a profit by investing. Those who don’t can barely live.
Now, what is clear is that both companies and individuals are completely polarized. And in the future, the disparity will widen more and more.
