You might want to do some more research on the subject.  Nikon's net corporate profit margin is down 50% this last quarter in 2013, despite the value of the Yen.

I think the net earnings are hovering just above 4%, which is not a very good profit margin by normal business standards.

I don't know what your basing your claim on, but it seems superficial in that it does not take into account the deeper picture.

It also seems a little like corporate and free market bashing, which seems to be a popular theme these days in the political battle of us versus them.  That battle has little to do with making you a wealthier man, just making certain government parties stronger.
