Thanks for tuning in to another edition of the Japan Considered Podcast. This week we backtrack a bit, with more information about government funding of Japan's political parties. Then we consider the "tainted gyoza" incident that recently erupted into a major topic of front-page consideration in Japan during the past few days. And move from there to the first part of our consideration of how the LDP and DPJ have handled the gasoline tax surcharge issue in this session of the Diet.
As always, continue to send your comments and suggestions for the program to me directly at RobertCAngel@gmail.com. I'm a bit behind on responses, with the recent increase in listenership. But read them all. And will respond to as many as possible.
