Note: I am simply going to continuously add material to this article on Japan and the impact on the world economy so that we don't 'lose' a very rich discussion that resulted from the alert by splitting it into a different thread.

First, the fact that it's been 24 hours without any significant reported deterioration of the heat or radiation emitting from the Fukushima complex hints that the situation has possibly hit bottom and/or stabilized.  No news is good news.  One view would be that the spent fuel has had plenty of time to do whatever it was going to do, and so far there are no signs that it's gone critical or burst back into flames. Perhaps it's done all it's going to do.

Also, NHK is reporting that electricity has been restored and that the water pumps serving Reactor #3 have been restarted. That's an enormous relief if it's true. Let's keep our fingers double crossed that it is.  

That's the good news.

Now for the bad news.
