How Japan Will Create "Hundreds of Thousands" of American Jobs

American jobsYesterday, President Donald Trump pointed his finger at two particular countries he thinks are responsible for global trade imbalances and for putting American jobs in particular at risk.

"[China and Japan] play the money market," he said, "they play the devaluation market, and we sit there like a bunch of dummies."

Tokyo quickly responded to the POTUS' words.

On Feb. 1, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told parliament that it's inaccurate to say that Japan is devaluing the yen, and that he would explain Japan's monetary policy and trade criteria to Trump if necessary.

Abe's retort may have seemed hardened and defensive. But moves the PM has been making quietly back home in Tokyo suggest he's actually positioning his country to cater to the U.S.' new leader...

Japan's Plan to Create American Jobs

You see, Abe recently directed his government to invest billions of Government Pension Investment Fund (GPIF) capital to fund Trump's promised infrastructure projects.

In order to do this, the GPIF will purchase debt issued by American corporations to finance these projects.

"The goal [of Abe's direction] is to create hundreds of thousands of American jobs, in keeping with U.S. President Donald Trump's agenda, and deepen ties between the two countries," wrote Tokyo's Nikkei Asian Review today (Feb. 2).

This is quite a stark pro-American move for the prime minister to make. One that could certainly keep him in good graces with Donald Trump.

The two world leaders are scheduled to meet on Feb. 10 in Washington to discuss bilateral and global trade policies and economic cooperation.

For his part, Abe told members of the lower house of Japan yesterday that he wished to discuss with Trump Japan's contribution toward improved productivity and competitiveness for "the entire U.S. industrial sector."
