It was a company that was established this year. Just a small hiccup.

A Japanese company openly admitting to "cheating"!! How much does anyone want to bet that they came out with this themselves, rather than have them get slammed by the government.

Which is obviously ignoring the main point.

with the practice spanning from around 2000 through October this year.

Last week the jgov admitted to inflating GDP figures through double counting of construction figures, and now this. As I've always said, Japan is no different to China.

Last week the jgov admitted to inflating GDP figures through double counting of construction figures, and now this. As I've always said, Japan is no different to China.

What happened was that the small construction companies imputed their pending construction orders as well along with the completed ones which resulted in double counting. Those companies are too small to affect the final GDP figures.

That is an understatement. Japan is worse than China because China scams people for power, while Japan scams people for vanity. Like Nissan or Suzuki who were in the partnership of foreign corporations, they are willing to crash their own company as long as foreigners don't dominate and make it profitable. As long as they have the image of being an executive lording over Japanese peasants, Japanese elites will go to any insane length to cover up even if they don't have dimes in their pockets.

I wonder if the drivers who were involved in accident and swore they hit the brakes, we’re right.

and if this is what’s happening,is it possible Toyota et al don’t want to admit they may have a problem to protect themselves from litigation.
