    A pro-nuclear policy using the existing plants threatens... everything. How much economic activity was knocked off the Japanese GDP because of the failure at Fukushima Daiichi?

      the answer is a tiny number.

      "Threat" does not equal "certainty".  Just wait for the rates to spiral upward and the country to go into deep recession, if not depression, as a result of this new (idiotic) policy.

        Not just to the country but to their corporations like Toyota who suffered greatly.  Yes, they're screwed, but at least they're not dead and screwed.
