政治主導の末路 - Faded Leadership of Government


I am reading Shigeaki Koga’s book “The Collapsing Mainstay of Japan” now in which the author explains comprehensively how DPJ went their track off. According to him, the single only minister in DPJ’s cabinet who kept confronting to the bureaucrat system was Akira Nagatsuma.
Judging from the behavior of Messrs. Noda and Azumi, they simply try to dash for the tax raise giving up such prior and fundamental issues as civil servant reformation, pension system reformation, or cutting annual expenditure. They are almost or entirely bureaucrats’ spokesmen.
