Econintersect:  The Japanese Times reported today that the owner of the stricken Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear complex might be forced to release 11,500 tons of radioactive water into the Pacific on Tuesday.  Put in perspective - this is equivalent to six hundred 18 wheeled fuel tanker trucks seen on the USA roadways.

The New York Times also reported a decline in business confidence according to a Japanese Central Bank survey.  This survey shows in the next 3 months, business believes the Japanese economy will worsen.   Econintersect's review of news indicates economists are not believing negative dynamics will continue into 2012.
