- Old men in companies doing nothing -

 

As I mentioned in class, I saw an news story recently saying that many people in Japan have a old man working in their company who doesn't really do any work. He sits around, he sleeps, he gossips, he complains. In other countries, this kind of person would be fired. If you don't do your work, you lose your job. Seniority is irrelevant. Why is this allowed in Japan? That person is taking home a lot of money for doing no work. And that means the company has less money for younger harder workers.

Is this a good business model? Why hasn't it been changed? Should it change?

- Kyoto financial crisis -

 

As you may know, the city of Kyoto is facing financial crisis. This was not caused by the pandemic, but it certainly hasn't helped.

 

What is the cause of the financial problems though? What is the city doing to  tackle this problem? Is it working? What else should be done? Are you particularly worried about the future of Kyoto?
