Comments on: Investing Japan, as Japan invests offshore http://blogs.reuters.com/summits/2009/07/06/investing-japan-as-japan-invests-offshore/ Exclusive outtakes from industry leaders Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: mrjohn http://blogs.reuters.com/summits/2009/07/06/investing-japan-as-japan-invests-offshore/comment-page-1/#comment-1008 Mon, 06 Jul 2009 14:53:24 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/summits/?p=3318#comment-1008 The “activist” investors bailed out because the economy went belly up, as was predicted by the companies and Japanese government who were resisting their “advice”. When the going got tough, they turned tail and ran for the exit. What pension fund would invest long term in a country with a famously aging population and underfunded pension system ? They were attempting a quick raid on the cash box, that’s all.

“Corporate governance” is one refuge for the parasite with no aptitude for work.

At least Japanese companies did learn from the last crash when the real estate bubble exploded, I wish I could say the same about American and European companies, but some will never learn.
