    Fascinating case study of modern Japan up to 2015 , broken into concise topics explored by knowledgeable writers with diverse backgrounds Some notables Shirahase discusses a Japanese society that was never as egalitarian and homogenous as claimed or believed, riding an economic wave thought to last forever that bred complacency and an unwillingness to enact reforms and create plans needed for the future The failure to address immigration reform threatens the future of the country, all while a Fascinating case study of modern Japan up to 2015 , broken into concise topics explored by knowledgeable writers with diverse backgrounds Some notables Shirahase discusses a Japanese society that was never as egalitarian and homogenous as claimed or believed, riding an economic wave thought to last forever that bred complacency and an unwillingness to enact reforms and create plans needed for the future The failure to address immigration reform threatens the future of the country, all while approaching an era of an aging population and low birth rate The people struggle to protect their homogeneity, with extinction looming to their existing way of life.Allison points out that connectivity to future roles creates anxiety in workers and citizens when it falls short of societal expectations, with such pressure intentionally and ideologically applied Compounding the issue is the traditional role of the home and genders still holds powerful sway, even as the economy shiftedneoliberal, meaning the expectation for both parents to work and rely on themselves for successthan the state.Osawa Kingston discuss corporations seizing on new trends and government backed policy changes using irregular workers as cost cutting measures against sustaining or growing the regular workforce particularly powerful for limiting the impact of women in the economy This is something every company does, and will do, when the defining economic system of capitalism says the short term profits outweigh long term growth and sustained social responsibility.Kano piece about how a legacy of state sponsored feminism suffering for legitimacy due to the pre WW2 history of women s groups forced to ally with state and militaristic factions to survive and have any hope of influencing policies outlier groups failed Contrasting point shows men not seen as taking careers seriously even while encouraged to spendtime with the family Women told a family focus was not enough to fulfill them while working outside the home judged to be destroying the family All to protect a traditional view of the family and gender roles that was never a majority of families in the country.Hymans discusses the dysfunctional nuclear energy policy system, already adversarial and convoluted before the 2011 Fukushima disaster entrenched public and private players plus the disparate anti nuclear groups with veto power over policy meant there was little agreement on reform, the future of the energy sector, and positive engagement with the public resulting in the people not only vehemently opposed to nuclear energy on often outdated information about the risks, but shaken in their respect for government to effectively manage the sector and deal with emergencies.Siembieda and Hayashi stress the need for disaster management agencies and policies to remain flexible to the changing requirements on the ground, have the authority to act quickly and decisively without waiting for permission from a central power, and gather information and aid physical, financial, etc from myriad sources such as other government entities, private groups, and non profits.Fujimoto and Baldwin In the interest of the next generation s living standards, lower wages cannot be a long term remedy bad for the workers, bad for the company, bad for the industry, bad for society Prescient to the current US position What a perverse irony if corporate leadership uses a tax break to build new factories abroad while closing domestic plants and Lowering taxes for managements that have lost faith in manufacturing here may just allow them to retainearnings and pay higher dividends Meyer shows that modern Japan wants to be a strong civilian power, preferring dialog over military deterrence or conflict, hefting its economic might to help solve the world s or region s problems unfettered by any ideological message any deeper than the accompanying prestige for being helpful , and the changing narrative involving providing for stronger military options outside its national borders.Repeta and Jones thoroughly describe the dangers of the ruling LDP party s long term goal of revising the constitution from a universal human rights focus to one of nationalism, preferring public order over individual rights

    What can you do for a potential demographic and social reform when the biggest obstacle for that is the very conservative culture and inward looking society of your country
