– A person who has something to say about everything

“Politicians can maintain their authority if they make the Finance Ministry their ally. If they oppose the ministry, however, all of Kasumigaseki will try to drag them down. With the politicians now jockeying for position to succeed Kan Naoto, those who want Kasumigaseki support are calling for a tax increase.”

– Takahashi Yoichi, former Finance Minister bureaucrat, councilor in the Cabinet Office, and now Kaetsu University professor
