Shoori Ito, Ha Ayuta # MyToo talk (Mashing Up)

On February 23, journalist Shogori Ito and a blogger / writer, Mr. Aku, joined the business conference "MASHING UP". I am talking about the preparedness until the two people accuse the damage and what actually happened after the accusation. In the second part, we introduce the actual situation of prevention of harassment in Japan that is likely to bias workers, personnel affairs and perpetrators to prevent sexual harassment. We encourage the parties themselves to disseminate information and read them. The theme of MASHING UP is Unleash Yourself (let's unleash ourselves). "Sex, age, race, beliefs - There are times when various categories that decorate us create heavy pressure of customs and tacit consciousness, unconsciously," You must do this ". Among them, it is not easy to find new possibilities and options. " We are also looking forward to the diversity and development of the place where each person discovers "what I want" and sends out. Japan also included the "tacit consent", "standard", "norm", etc. of society that finally had been established in the period of rapid growth after "low birthrate, aging population", "population decrease" and "lost 20 years" , I think that it has been recognized that cooperativeism (corporatism) is interfering with the development of 21st century society and labor productivity. It takes time to change the social structure, but I would like to support and support the diversity of activities across fields.

"Black Box" where rape-damaged journalists ask the world

In May 2017, journalist Ito Kiyoori made a statement saying he was raped by a acquaintance journalist. The other man denies any illegal activity. The book "Black Box" written by Shogoro Ito, published from Bungei Spring Autumn in October 2017, has become the best seller in the Amazon category "Penal Code / Procedure Law". It is an interesting one in thinking about Japanese society. The truth is here, "Here is the truth, why the judiciary does not judge this?" Journalists raped by the rape question the world, the law and investigation, the present state of society, thoughts from respected people To prove that fact, there was a "black box" everywhere in the closed room, the acceptance of society, the arrest warrant stopped, everything there was a change, if the judiciary does not judge this, do not change something There is an overwhelming nonfiction that journalists who suffered from rape damage closely respond to the situation surrounding the victim themselves.

Also, at the BBC radio program "Business Matters", I heard a talk with Shiori Ito (the following is a quotation.) Ito says, "It was a very scary because it is a person with a deep friendship with influential politicians, I was pretty annoyed as to whether it is right to raise a person's name or to believe in myself.

What is changed in Japan and "What will not change" clearly

Happy New Year. I hope that 2018 (Heisei 30 years) will be "a year of leap" for you and for Japan. Japan is now at the forefront of a super aging society. In 2019, it will be "the retirement of the Emperor of the Emperor" and "the throne of the new emperor and the new era". The Tokyo Olympics and Paralympic Games will be held in 2020. It is Japan's last chance. The turbulent world, what Japan should do "ahead"? Prime Minister Abe talks with the beginning of the year, saying, "The future can be changed with our hands," and I am determined. I think that the top priority should be the sense of speed and its effectiveness. I think that we should recognize the "lost decade", "lost 20 years", "lost 30 years", unseen "no resilience" and "world competitiveness" not seen in this world I will. About this, what is "letting it do" of Japanese society? I think that Japan can not escape unless you change it and clarify what "will not change" to cope with and execute it. It is said that Japan is now lagging around the world. Prime Minister Abe Heisei 30 years Inspiration (Prime Minister's Official Residence) From "Ichigo-san" who died in April 2013 "About economic downturn" Economics is not an abstract numerical sequence, one of the people I was given the comment that "Is not it the total amount of creativity of one person and ability to think by myself?" I also think so.

Gender disparity index 2017 Japan 114th (Global Gender Gap Report 2017)

According to the World Economic Forum (WEF) World Gender Equality Annual Report 2017 announced on November 2, the gender disparity expanded worldwide for the first time since the first 2006 report. The deterioration of the gender disparity in the world is based on the spread of gender disparity in the four pillars of "educational background" "health and survival rate", "opportunity for economic activity" and "political authority". We point out that workplaces and politics are particularly serious. France (17th to 11th) ranked the highest in gender equality in the G20 (major 20 countries) countries, followed by Germany (12), UK (20th to 15th), Canada (from 35th 16th), South Africa (19), and Argentina (34). The United States is ranked 49th and under the group with 4 rankings dropped. China (100), India (108), Japan (114), Korea (118), Turkey (131), and Saudi Arabia (138). Of the 144 countries surveyed in Japan, 1015 in 2015, 111 in 2016 and finally in 1147 in 2017 are the lowest ever in history. The political sector has greatly dropped from 103rd to 123rd, and the economic field also remains low at 114th. Japan is not going to go unless all the women shining society building headquarters (prime minister's official residence) do not have immediate effect and effective policy such as introduction of quota system in all fields. The recent forecast worth noting as an economic case for Beijing +20 and positive action, quota system equality is that GDP rises due to economic gender equality, US $ 1.750 billion, Japan 550 billion, France 3,200 It is said that Germany has an economic effect of 310 billion dollars. Also, it seems that the economic effect of China's GDP is 2.5 trillion dollars from gender equality. According to a survey at LinkedIn, "men are underestimated in education, health and welfare areas, while women are underestimated in engineering, manufacturing and construction, information, communication and technology areas. Differences in areas mean the possibility of losing the opportunity to further enhance gender diversity, innovation, creativity and profitability in each department.

Read the future investment strategies of Japan and "uneasy individuals, standing nation"

On June 9, 2017 the Cabinet decided "Future Investment Strategy 2017" aiming to realize "Society 5.0 (Society 5.0)". How did you read this "Future Investment Strategy 2017" and "Anxious Individuals, Standing State (pdf)" created by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry young projects? Even if you read "Future Investment Strategy 2017", the Abe government's "Growth strategy bright Japan" will look hazy. A part of it is pointed out by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry's "uneasy individuals, nation-building states", but the departure from the "cooperative unionist values" established in the high growth era (Japan is a developing country) It is difficulty. Each country in the world with the world's top competitiveness is aggressively investing in "innovation" and "creativity" and "digital economy", adapting the industrial structure and developing the economy. In addition, we review old legal systems and institutions to raise the "happiness degree of the people". In any advanced growth strategy the basic is "human". In the 21st century, organizations and enterprises that control individuals' wonderful abilities and diverse talents do not develop. The world ranking of "digital competitiveness" such as artificial intelligence (AI), FinTech, computer data science field, and Japan ranked number 26. "Japanese disease" comparable to "British disease", the preparation of citizens and bureaucracy, preparation of business circle and mass media, and preparation of leader are essential to cure the complex diseases. Developing countries will open up the "era without model". To the bright Japan with the avenomics growth strategy! (Prime Minister's Official Residence) Future Investment Strategy 2017

Transparency International Japan declined year by year at 20th place

Transparency International (abbreviation: TI) is an international non-governmental organization dealing with corruption, especially corruption. We publish the Corruption Perceptions Index listing corruption around the world every year since 1995. This corruption awareness index is the most commonly used indicator of corruption in countries around the world alongside the World Bank's corruption index. TI inquires businesspersons and analysts about the impression of the degree of corruption in the country inside and outside of the surveyed country and calculates indices based on the results. This is because calculations based on the actual number of corruption incidents can not be made because the law and its enforcement greatly differ from country to country. In 2016, the most clean country was Denmark and New Zealand (No. 1 / Score 90), followed by Finland 3rd, Sweden 4th and Switzerland 5th. German and British are ranked 10th in the major countries, 18th in the US, 23rd in France, 23rd in Italy, 60th in Italy, 79th in China, India and Brazil with the same score of 40.
