Japanese bra promises economic uplift

Category : Business

The ‘Branomics Bra’ is a playful take on prime minister Shinzo Abe’s ‘three-arrow’ economic revival plan

The Japanese division of lingerie maker Triumph International unveiled on Wednesday an “Abenomics” bra, a special edition it says offers a “growth strategy” and a potential lift towards Japan’s elusive inflation target.

Launches of Triumph’s concept bras in Tokyo have become a regular event over the past quarter of a century and are an important publicity tool for the 127-year-old, Swiss-headquartered company.

The latest “Branomics Bra” follows earlier solar-powered, recycled and “husband-hunting” models but, like its predecessors, will not go on sale.

The “Branomics Bra” is a playful take on prime minister Shinzo Abe’s “three-arrow” economic revival plan that combines monetary strategy aiming to reach 2% inflation in two years and pro-growth reforms.

It features a rising trendline and arrows as motifs and promises a 2% increase in volume with extra padding.

“We hope that, as the Japanese economy grows, we can also help bust sizes to get bigger,” said Triumph spokeswoman Keiko Masuda.

Its benefits for Japan’s policymakers were less clear.

MasterChef’s winning recipe loses something in translation

Transported to Spain, BBC’s MasterChef looks rather less fine. Plus where BBC ‘talent’ learned their bullying tactics

The formats BBC Worldwide sells around the globe don’t always seem quite the same in foreign parts. While MasterChef UK was reaching its fine-dining apogee of lobster tails and fennel last week, I was watching MC in Spain: red versus blue teams sticking large white, vaguely phallic asparagus spears in tomato mush and cooking up a storm of Spanish omelette. Now Greg, we’ve done beans on toast. On to the fish and chips…

British bullying isn’t confined to the BBC

The BBC’s latest hair shirt of a report into bullying and sexual harassment makes pretty glum reading, especially if you visualise sundry old “talent” stars doing their grubby work in the background. Time to get a grip, but also, perhaps, to add a dab of context. “It isn’t physical intimidation. It is people who lose their temper, are shouting; the impact on people can be intimidating and humiliating.”

That’s Bectu general secretary Gerry Morrissey on Dinah Rose’s findings. But it could be almost anyone watching prime minister’s questions. Yah! Boo! Watch Dave or Ed left red-faced while the groundlings cheer. Then wonder who’s setting the bad example.
