technically it's morally good. investing in Japanese businesses in this crisis will only help Japan economically, you're only going in for the ride but you're pitching in your two cents, literally.

I was actually thinking of buying some shares whilst they're low. How do I go about it?

Its not wrong at all. The markets are a price finding mechanism, they are there so that buyers and sellers can agree on a price which they both consider to be fair. In the light of a natural disaster such as the one in Japan, firms that are exposed to Japan are worth less at the end of the day; face it.

Well the US Redcross seem perfectly happy to take $10 every time someone texts to "donate" so why not?

(To those wondering: Japan hasn't asked for aid from other countries so all those $10s are going straight to the redcross, not Japan)

I was going to say the same as everyone else, providing your money is an injection to their economy and not a leakage (which it could never be seeing as your external to their economy) - it's very beneficial them! They need as much investment as possible at the moment while everyones pulling out!

On a less moral, and more economic point of view...be careful not to choose something that will collapse
