More Pork, Please
Mr. Morita is quoted in this Christian Science Monitor article on economic stimulus plans around the world. He argues that Japan needs large-scale public spending to create jobs, not small checks for individuals, as some are proposing. Morita's thinking is in line with Obama and the progressives in the US -- spend massively on job creation and clean, green industries before it's too late. But the social Darwinists in DC and Tokyo and the media of both countries are marching in lock-step in the opposite direction.
