    The opposite politicians are saying the privitazation of Japan post will cause many other problems and the negative views for Japanese governmental finance deficit is exagerrated and missed the key points.


    Anybody agree with them?

    Perhaps privatization will allow the politicians to dip into people's savings with even more impunity. It has long been known that postal savings/takings are a slush fund.

    Agree with celtician perfectly. There are a lot more stuff that the Japanese government need to fund and the postal savings is a quick access. Of course, given the near-zero interest rate in Japan, it should make it easy for the privatization movement to achieve even 2-4% growth.
