Heavy Industries were the lifeblood of Japan during the booming growth years, but now they maintain profitability only through outsourcing the manufacturing process to other nations with sweat-shop wages. For all intent and purposes, heavy industries in Japan are unprofitable when fully operated from Japan. Expect ever-shrinking blue-collar jobs in Japan in these industries, though the corporate profits may still make them a trader’s favorite. The back-door buildup of a defense posture will lead to exports of war weapons and munitions.
