The LDP has done NOTHING to encourage young people to marry, let alone have children.

.

Policies, such as

Tax Breaks for couples;

tax credits for each child;

3. PAID maternity & paternity leave,

4. WOMEN are guaranteed their job back/ position back if they choose to take a year off to be with their child. . . .

These guys in the govt are all disengaged entitled rich kids.

They don't have clue how expensive and challenging it is to raise a family.

Renho is correct.

(Wish she'd make it as Prime minster. She is one sharp lady.)

.

Aso is a buffoon.

The only reason he holds this prime position ( for so many years) is bc of his rich connections.

You mean the cull of Ghosn?

Good point ! :-)

All the pictures we see of Ghosn are pre-incarceration. Are they afraid to show what he looks like now?

Probably JT does not have a current shot of the inauspicious man.

Though, this piece is hardly news

It just seems to perpetuates the 'cult-of Ghosn"

Americans - esp those masquerading as 'tolerant' liberals like Ehrenreich - need to grow out of their xenophobia and learn to accept that the world is wide in ethnic and cultural diversity.

jpn-guy

The implication that there are only two alternatives

Of course there is a continuum of socio-political 'systems' that operate between complet despotic rule and anarchy.

.

However on this issue, individuals who do not agree with the prosecution & detainment of Ghosn fall into the extreme ( almost fanaticism) of categorically denouncing the J legal system as being categorically unjust, un fair.

wtfjapan ... because in democratic countries the law should be applied equally across all people regardless of their wealth, position , nationality or race.

.

Well ------ dream on !

.

Tell me ONE 'democratic' country where the law is applied EQUALLY with no discrimination regarding rich & poor, race, wealth, family status. ....?

.

In Japan the list of illustrious, wealthy entrepreneurs detained ( ultimately charged and sentenced) for long periods of time for white collar crimes is VERY long.

.

It seems , actually, the VERY rich are less likely to get away with it in Japan than they are in other 'democratic' countries.

John

By the way, as we are talking about plot.

*(1) Ghosn himself was about to oust Hiroto Saikawa, officially because sales in the USA were lower than what Ghosn was expecting. And unofficially certainly because Hiroto Saikawa was the leading opposition to the merger with Renault*..

.

Ghosn, a master at complicity - so that is the why he restores his current situation as a 'plot & treason'

.

.

(2) *Oh by the way, how many here knows that Ghosn has ousted 3 Nissan directors, falsely accusing them of spying ? . . . . they were simply fired with a delusional charge of spying* !

.

Yes. That happened in France with Renault.

And after the Execs were fired, Renault did a through investigation and found they were innocent.

There is very deep sentiment of distaste for Ghosn in Renault And iN France because of this situation (contrary to what some J media want to portray)

.

.

(3)* That's probably how Ghosn could have engineered everything with an inner circle of people of slavish loyalty. So, of course, a very few and only a very few of Nissan executives were informed of Ghosn's wrongdoings, but they would just shut up for the sake of their wages... until someone whistled the end of the game. Who's the dictator ?*

.

.

You got it, John.

People just need to do a little research and the FACTS are there.

And once the prosecution is done wringing the complicit Nissan execs dry for information, they will also be sued and fired.

°1) because Ghosn "saved" Nissan back then, how is it a justification to steal money ? These are 2 separate matters.

.

YES ! True.

.

2°) *Nissan Japanese executives .... couldn't come with the idea of firing thousands of employees, shutting down many factories and thus literally destroying the economic fabric of many cities (with direct and indirect employment).*

*Ghosn could have made these choices, without a single twinge of regret, and has put a lot a money in his pockets. So, *Ghosn "saved" Nissan, but at what cost !

.

Excellent point !

Too often under reported !!!

There is just too much hard, concrete evidence of Ghosn's misappropriation of moneys for him be be convincing.

He has put himself above the law. and fell on his own sword.

I have only had Nissan and Toyota

Had a Maxima- in th those days drove like a bird. Beautiful

Then I had a Pathfinder. Solid Frame. Great performance. No problems.

Had several Toyotas.

The Celica was like flying. Stopped on a dime

Never had a problem with any of them.

Now driving a Highlander. Not too enamoured with the body.

Will probably trade it in for a 4 Runner.

Their vehicles are works of art.

People are hardly interested in the Ghosn affair.

Certainly in Africa, Indonesia, Australia, - wherever - people look at

1. price 2. quality and performance

So Ghosn is a non issue.

The least a Journalist could do is demonstrate their skill at bi lingual fluency.

Anyway why would a media company send out a monolingual reporter to interview an international super star.

JJ Jetplane: Ghosn and Kelly has been with the Company for over 10 years. That means their actions could have directly defrauded investors and it is highly unlikely that two people could have run a scheme such as this so it also means that company itself could have defrauded investors. 

Excellent point.

.

The SEC is a bloodhound; and, not only Ghosn & Kelly but others, like Munoz (former Chair of Nissan NA) ,as well as Nissan itself are in their crosshairs.

.

Renault may wish Nissan out of the picture. :-).

That is also probably ONE reason Jose Munoz, former Chairman of Nissan North America quit a few weeks back.

And as many of you cheer this problem for Nissan, do remember that any reversal will impact the hundreds of thousands jobs of middle class working class America.

.

Once Ghosn learned how the 'system' worked in Japan - he played the game to advance his interests

.

This is net result

.

Though other Nissan Execs are EQUALLY CULPABLE. and likely will not be able to exonerate themselves.
