Quotes

"Achieving growth through competitiveness policies, deregulation, competition - these are things which must be done and they are just common sense,” said economist Heizo Takenaka, a member of a government economic advisory panel."
"We won't make a list of candidates to recommend this time" said a leading LDP upper house member. "The premier will understand what we want."
...But while the political relationship got colder, the economic relationship expanded and prospered (` "Cold Politics, Hot Economics`). This also had –at first glance counter-intuitively – a deleterious effect on the motivation to work harder to maintain the conditions for putting aside the territorial conflict since this dichotomy gave the false impression that politics and economics could be kept separate forever while the territorial issue was pending.

...It was started early on in the DPJ's history, which is now in its 16th year." Kaieda continued, "A gender equality committee has been established in all of our prefectural chapters. This is an essential requirement for ensuring that as many female members as possible are elected in next spring's unified local elections."
