Hi Blog.  Just a quick heads up for those in the big big cities to get a copy of the Japan Times off their newsstand tomorrow.  My next JUST BE CAUSE column will be on Japan’s demographic science:   How politics is interfering with analysis, making any official consideration of immigration as a possible factor a taboo topic.  That’s tomorrow, Tues November 3 (Weds in the provinces), Japan Times.  Arudou Debito

UPDATE:  Here it is:

  • Debito, Mizuho Fukushima has the low birth rate problem all figured out. The plan will be unveiled sometime in the future. Right now we have to do something about those bases in the Ryuukyuus.

  • Well written article indeed. Things obviously aren’t being thought through very well.

    J Wife and I had a talk about the twin demographic and debt tsunamis that will hit Japan, and her remark was “I’m glad that we have the option to live overseas”

    Makes me wonder if we may see more of a brain drain from Japan as the tax burden on the working person inevitably becomes greater and greater.
