Japan’s Paradox of Wealth

http://www.glocom.org/opinions/essays/20050607_sawa_japan/index.html

Here’s a very interesting article that sums up the idea that Japan is a rich country with a relatively low standard of living.  That is to say that the nation is affluent because the citizenry put in long hours and live in cramped, uncomfortable apartments.  I can definitely identify with this having lived in Japan for 3 years.

Not too much to report on the personal front.  I was doing some web research this morning for work for Japanese university recruiting contacts and I came across the article above.

I do miss Japan a little, but I love my new job and my big city life in NYC.
