I wonder what he put into his eyes to make himself cry? This is just the first of a few other heads that will probably roll.

No problem , we all cheat . There are no saints in business.

Can't wait to see Abe's picture, with the same headline.

Hardly Oscar material. Did Carlos have a live feed in his super villain lair?

Is resigning really a way of taking responsibility? I'm sure that, facing corporate fraud charges would be more appropriate.

Fall on the sword and land on your pile of cash...

Resigning as President, or resigning from the company? Two quite different things. He'll probably turn up again in a few months time, as head of a Mitsubishi subsidiary, the corporates take care of their own.

Well that's a first. He actually gave himself a FACEPALM.

There were 3 Mitsubishi men, and the little one said: "Roll over, roll over". So they all rolled over and Aikawa fell out.

He wouldn't be quitting if hte next amakudari position and the golden parachutes were not already lined up.

No biggie, He'll just be reassigned to another position in the company.

Nice headline, but he's just adjusting his glasses.

"No problem , we all cheat ." huh?

speak for yourself bud.

Look at the top headlines about vows to increase wages and this one on corporate malfeasance ...pure theater. They suffer no consequences except an amakudari soft landing or generous transfer. Where are the fraud prosecutions?
