I studied about the pension problem in Japan last year and it just occurred to me – Why doesn’t the Japanese pension fund (or whatever they wanna call themselves) make investments? In that way, they no longer need to bitch about the ageing population problem creeping onto their pension AND the younger generation need not pay that much taxes in order to contribute to the pension system. Nice and neat solution isn’t it? Korea’s doing it, our CPF is definitely doing it. So why isn’t the Japanese govt. jumping on the band wagon?
There was another shooting in the US today. 4 girls dead and 7 injured so far. What’s wrong with school children in the US I wonder? Have they all gone mad? *sigh* it’s sad that children are killing other children.
