In Response To: Re: Natural Gas/Encana ()

The widely know reasons include:
1) Repatriation of overseas assets by Japanese firms.
2) Extremely high personal savings rate (currently roughly = to total Japanese government debt).
3) Asset conversions into Yen by global re-insurance firms.

Obviously there will be a large demand for cash and loans within the domestic Japanese economy as repairs are started and capital replaced. In effect, this has created a relative rarity in the Yen.
