what the us should do is nuke the hell out of japan, flatten it, reshape the landscape and let the japanese rebuild it all again, better, smaller and much more user friendly.
but this is a funny thread, to the OP:
it's nice you have that go getter mentality, you think exactly like the people who are robbing and exploring you now as we speak.
never let a good crisis go to waste
In the closing months of World War II, in the Philippines, several of Japan's highest ranking imperial princes hid tons of looted gold bullion and other stolen treasure in caves and tunnels, to recover later. This was the wealth of 12 Asian countries, accumulated over thousands of years.
As dozens of Filipino reporters crowded around, firing questions, the 47-year-old San Francisco author and academic casually adjusted his white Panama hat, shifted his bronze-hilted hunting knife and explained just how convinced he and his Nevada-based company are that they are digging in the right place for buried treasure that could help retire the Philippines' $29-billion foreign debt.

This may be a sore topic for some, but the Japanese have just lost all industry. This is a moment for entreprenuers everywhere (hopefully the US) to thrive and win in the open global economy. What industries do the Japanese own and operate that are now possible to be established on US soil?edit on 14-3-2011 by SlyingFaucers because: (no reason given)
I agree and do not deny that there is an opportunity in pretty much anything and everything that humans are affiliated with. However not everday is same. Someday, we will be on the opposite end of the situation. A good businessman/woman will do some long term thinking, Invest in Japan and perhaps come up with a win-win sitaution for both sides and still profit. I'm sure there are folks out there thinking this up already but now wouldn't be a good time even to put this up as a thread when many of us attempting to assess the situation as it may affect the US as well.

Although people seem to have their "feelings" hurt by your post. This thought has already crossed my mind and if you people who cry this is "too soon" or "we don't need to be thinking about the economy right now", I'd like to ask you a question, ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR FREAKING MINDS?!?!? Have you forgotten this planets motto is "survival of the fittest"?? And to answer the OP's question YES america will make some money off of this, I mean since when doesn't the USA capatalize off of another countries short comings?
