- A person who has something to say about everything
I’ve spent the last 40 years as a management consultant helping companies adapt to globalization, and with the nine countries participating in the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) negotiations, not once has there been an instance in any country in which a trade barrier has been an obstacle for management strategy. The emotional catchphrase (of those in favor of joining) that “We’ll utilize Asia’s growth capacity” is a bit strange, but when the opponents, with their delusion of damage, say “Japan will be destroyed”, it is utter nonsense.

Between the TPP opponents’ hysteria and the government proponents’ disdain for providing an adequate explanation to the public, who could blame the Japanese if this were their response? (Regardless of their opinion on TPP, polls show that 78% of the Japanese public agree that the government’s explanations have been unsatisfactory.)
