Synopsis of my book " We hear the sound of collapsing Japan" Story1

I published the book in Japanese language in June last year entitled " We hear the sound of collapsing Japan" by Asahi Newspaper Publishing Co. Many of my non Japanese reading friends want to know the content of this book, I am going to write the main points of this book in this column in a series of essays from today.

The main stream of the argument of the book is as follows:

(1) In the general election of the House of Representatives in August 2010, The Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ) won by a large margin against the so far ruling party, the Liberal Democratic Party(LDP) backed by a hope of the majority of voters who wished to see the renewal of Japanese politics by the new power.

(2) However, once the DPJ government started administration, it surprised and disappointed the public deeply in several aspects: the DPJ government policies have been determined by small ally parties, the issues of money scandal, the failure of handling the issue of relocating the Futenma base in Okinawa, and inexperienced and poor and reckless management of economic policies.

(3) Because of these clumsy or false policy management, the trust of Japanese government with the US administration, and with Okinawans has been harmed, uncontrolled increase of the government fiscal deficit is approaching a dangerous zone of possibly losing the value of national bonds.

(4) The change of the administration from LDP to DPJ was not really the change of Japan's politics for the future, but only the change of power within the old power structure nurtured in the long LDP rein.

(5) I analyzed the historical background of how Japan failed to remodel itself facing major changes of mega-trends both in Japan and the world during the LDP rein of the for the last quarter of the century, which aggravated many economic and social problems from which the public suffer.

(6) I suggested what will have to be done for Japan to really remodel itself to match the new trends and environments mainly in the sphere of economic strategies.

I will write in some detail main points of this stream of argument occasionally in my blog.
Hope you will enjoy reading it.
