Thanks for stopping in again this week. We've made some progress on migration of the Japan Considered Project website to new, hopefully more reliable, commercial servers. The process isn't done yet. But at least the audio files are up. And the link above takes you to the first page on the new website server. Nothing much else there yet, however. Coming soon, as they say.
This week I've devoted the whole program to more detailed consideration of the political significance of the continued decline in the public approval ratings of the Abe Cabinet. It is, I believe, the most important domestic political topic for Japan at the moment. With widespread implications. We explore a few of them, focusing on how the significance of public approval of Japan's central political executive has changed over the past few decades.
Thanks for your continued attention. As always, send your comments and suggestions to me at RobertCAngel@gmail.com. I read them all with interest. And soon you will be able to reach the Japan Considered Project website at www.JapanConsidered.com.
