    Graham - Bass is expressing his view of Japan through the currency. Me too as a long term resident of Japan. Short Yen, long gold. Japan is screwed. You have to live here to appreciate how screwed

    Brilliant perspective on China's heterogeneity, and how the history of Japanese and Korean leadership fit within a macro context: wish he explained a bit why he was long Japanese stocks since 2012...

    In my own view I have seen China as a monolithic cohesive force. I knew this was not correct but had no cohesive information to challenge. The sense of history also does much to illuminate. TY!
