– A person who has something to say about everything

The most important thing for economic growth is strengthening competition. Enhanced competition policies. All people tend to want to take it easy. They don’t want to compete. The strength of people such as those is put in the service of politics through elections, and government then uses regulations to create vested interests. Japan today is caught in a straitjacket of regulation and vested interests.

– Hashimoto Toru, Mayor of Osaka
