Japanese translation of "Catastrophe in Japan - First assessment of the economic consequences" IG Metall’s Position

The earthquake off the coast of Honshu and the ensuing tsunami are the biggest natural catastrophes in Japan’s history. The extent of the damage, in particular to Fukushima nuclear power plant, and the extent of a possible nuclear catastrophe cannot yet be estimated precisely.

“日本の大震災:経済への影響の暫定的予測”

The earthquake off the coast of Honshu and the ensuing tsunami are the biggest natural catastrophes in Japan’s history. The extent of the damage, in particular a possible nuclear catastrophe, cannot yet be estimated with much precision. It remains unclear what damage has occurred so far as a result of the nuclear catastrophe and what consequences a meltdown in one or more of the reactors could have.
