John Mauldin continues:

“People have been talking about, ‘Oh, Japan’s going to have a problem.  Japan’s going to be in a crisis.  Look at the data.’  And nothing happens.  They (the Japanese) don’t go up, they don’t go down, they just go.  That process is getting ready to come to an end....

“They have kicked the can as far down the road as they can.  They have elected (Prime Minister) Abe, to come in.  And he’s appointed former Prime Minister (Taro) Aso, who two days ago said that he wants to lift the self-imposed debt limits, in terms of how much debt they are willing to take on each year.

The difference between other people saying that and Aso, Aso is an old, old family in Japanese politics.  While he didn’t distinguish himself when he was Prime Minister, he still has the contacts within the party.  He still has the pull, that clout.  When he says, ‘This is what I want to do as Finance Minister,’ which is take off the limits for debt, he has the political wherewithal and clout to in fact do that.  And I think you have to take that extremely seriously.

We’ve already watched the yen go from the mid-70s, now it’s mid-80s.  It (the yen) waltzed right on through 86.  Three years ago, I was on record saying that the yen would eventually go to 100, then 125, then 150, then 200, and then 300.  I still think so.  In my lifetime, I can remember the yen being over 300.  It went all the way down to 75, which is a long trip. 

The yen is going to make a reverse, and it’s not going to take 40 years.  It’s going to take this decade.  And that’s a monster potential macro-trade.  It’s time to start putting that (trade) on.  It’s time to start thinking about how their bonds are going to react, and how their stock markets are going to react.  I think it’s going to be one of the great macro-trades of my lifetime.”

When asked about the gold market for 2013, Mauldin responded, “Let me say this, if I was buying gold in terms of yen, absolutely.  If you are Japanese, you want to be buying more gold.  If you are French, you want to be buying more gold.

If you are in the United States, you want to figure out whether we are going to balance the deficit or not.  If (hypothetically we were to) get this deficit under control, then you want to buy your gold in terms of other currencies.  There are ways to do that.

But if we don’t get the deficit under control, I will start increasing my percentage of gold that I buy every month, because at that point we will have really committed ourselves to a path that is not sustainable.”
