Standard and Poorâs said Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Nodaâs administration hasnât made progress in tackling the public debt burden, an indication it may be preparing to lower the nationâs sovereign grade. âJapanâs finances are getting worse and worse every day, every second,â Takahira Ogawa, director of sovereign ratings at S&P in Singapore, said in an interview. Asked if that means heâs closer to cutting Japan, he said it âmay be right in saying that weâre closer to a downgrade. But the deterioration has been gradual so far, and itâs not like weâre going to move today.â http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-...er-to-japan-downgrade-as-finances-worsen.html IsnÂ´t it utterly ridiculous beyond common sense? Yen as a "safe haven". LMAO!!!!!!
