New push should be for renewables

Category : World News

Instead of scrambling to restart two idled reactors at the Oi power plant, the government should start capping the amount of spent nuclear fuel and boost use of renewable energies as a means to completely eliminate nuclear power in the long term, according to clean energy expert Tetsunari Iida.
The government and Kansai Electric Power Co.’s current haste to fire up the Oi nuclear plant reactors in Fukui Prefecture is “completely irrational,” said Iida, one of 25 members on an industry ministry panel drafting Japan’s medium- to long-term energy strategy.

Poetic, but maybe not justice: Japan demystified in haiku

Category : World News

One of my goals in writing for The Japan Times over the years has been to try to render the seemingly arcane functioning of the Japanese legal system a bit more comprehensible to non-Japanese, non-legal types. This involves a big assumption that I understand it myself, but I have at least tried to offer up an analytical framework for trying to understand how things work in the legal sphere here (executive summary: You will probably lose).
Upon reflection, however, I fear that as a lawyer myself I sometimes may be too verbose, too meandering in my expositions about the quirks of Japanese law. Further reflection also brought the realization that I live in a country which has a well-established, powerful medium for conveying complex emotional situations in a minimal number of words: haiku. Since satirizing the inanities of daily life through senryū (a type of haiku) is also a popular pastime in Japan, it seems like a particularly apt medium for some of the things I write about. So without further ado, I offer up the following as my own attempted renderings in that format on the subject of Japanese law, justice and government.

Bank of England holds on QE as inflation concerns grow

Category : Business

MPC votes 8-1 to pause on QE, while deputy governor warns inflation may stay above 3% for rest of 2012

Inflation in the UK will not fall as fast as the Bank of England has forecast, the deputy governor has said, reining in hopes that the central bank will provide another cash boost for the economy.

Expectations were further dampened after minutes out on Thursday showed only one member of the bank’s monetary policy committee (MPC) voted for an increase in the £325bn quantitative easing (QE) programme.

David Miles advocated another £25bn injection into the economy. The other eight members, including Adam Posen, who had been the committee’s most persistent supporter for more QE, voted for no change. All nine members of the MPC voted to keep the main interest rate at 0.5%.

The pound shot up after the minutes from around $1.594 to just under $1.60, as the committee appeared to show a vote of confidence in the future of the UK economy.

David Tinsley, economist at BNP Paribas, said: “All the signs now are that the MPC will pause on asset purchases from May.” He added that the committee come back to QE later in the year, if the economy starts to flag, but for now it looks like they are more worried about inflation.

In a speech in Liverpool on Wednesday, Tucker said inflation might stay above 3% this year, compared with previous forecasts from the Bank that it would probably fall to the official 2% target by the end of 2012.

He said: “The MPC will guide inflation back to target in the medium term, but in the near term there is considerable uncertainty about the path that it will follow.”

Food and clothing prices prodded inflation up to 3.5% in March, halting a five-month decline from a peak of 5.2% in September 2011.

Tucker said monetary policy could only underpin the recovery so long as it was consistent with getting inflation back to 2% in the medium term. “We shall not let that slip,” he said.
