とか偉そうに言っていますが、本当にそうだと思います。下記のケース、革の感触、eggshellのプロテクション、サイドには赤バンパーラインが着いてもガサばりません。近いうち案内できるのかなあ?今は私だけ。Made in Japan ロベルさんとの合作です。(え〜 まじ?)

 

もう新型EnzoのCGが出始めているのか?V8 Twin Turbo。来週には458チャレンジも限定公開するみたいだし。。黒いマットブラックのルーフ、私の458と同じだ。車両の色はRosso Fuocoかな?

 

今日はtwitterで@ttachiで知られる立花さんのtwitterミートアップ「dpub 1st」に参加しました。立花さんはブログのタイトル「No Sec­ond Life 人生は一度だけ。二度目の人生はない。だからこそ一度だけの人生をしっかり生きたい」からも分かるように、「人生一度しか生きない、一生懸命生きたい」と言う教えをご自身毎日自分に与えた厳しいマラソンのノルマやあらゆる本を読みご自身の解説でブログ読者に勇気を与えてくれる素晴らしい人です。私も陰ながら彼を応援しています。挫折の多い世の中、かれのような人間の存在を貴重に思うのは私だけでしょうか。何時ものMacやApple系の友達と違う数多くの方々とお話しできた事や新しいお友達が出来た事を嬉しく思います。

 

FabSpeedが黒の458をモデルに排気系とECUの開発を始めた。私の458もそろそろX-OSTに変更を検討中。。2本だしは賛否両論だが、確かにこちらの方がバランス良い。

 

今日は古い仲間と豚組でイベント。何年ぶりにあったか忘れるぐらい久しぶりの人たちと会った。最後会ったのが1998年の人も。私は1998年と1999年、現日本マクドナルド社長の原田さんと出演した。

また今回の会は重い病気を克服しアメリカからマーチン高橋が帰国したのも含めてのお祝いだった。ハンズオン代表菊池さんとオーガナイザー近藤さんと豚組しゃぶ庵で30人近い人間で盛大に行われた。近藤さんのおかげです。来年はMac ‘n Rollが復活すると良いですね。マーチン元気でね。

弊社もUstreamスタジオ構築を少しずつ始めている。メインカメラはソニーNX5二台、サブコンパクトはNEX-10NEX-5を利用する予定は無いが、並べてみた。NX5はどんな設定でもボタンがある「ボタンの化け物」でNEX-10は本当にボタンが消えたビデオカメラだ。近いうちこれらのレビューも予定中。NXCAMSDI-SDSDI-HDがでるカメラで、この価格帯に放送用カメラが出てきた事に驚く。これに比べるとNEX-VG10は民生用で、出力はHDMI。Leicaレンズ等をEMマウントをつけ遊ぶ事が出来る。

NEX10は昨日発売の民生用カメラだが、過去のハンディーカム大きくベシックな考えを変え、大型CCD、レンズ交換、小型等をメインに開発されたカメラ。やはり映像はフラットで業務用カメラにはならない。しかし将来1080 24p/60p やVBRが搭載されれば低予算映画製作がかのになるかもしれない昔の8ミリ的存在。

NEX5は小さい、レンズが本体の1/2をしめる。簡単に安く本体は作りレンズを売る商売は主流になりつつある事を感じる。CCDは一年周期だがレンズは永久利用できる。レンズに変わる新たな光学技術が生まれるまでは。

近いうちNEX10でNoctilux 50mm 0.95レンズを利用した映像像をアップします。

It’s good to know that some experts in econ­omy con­sider Japan depressed, but not in depres­sion. See my favorite Paul Krug­man put it in a short para­graphs which is easy to under­stand. Paul makes sim­ple assump­tions based on sta­tis­ti­cal data, and as a non-economist and reader of his blog, I am quite at a loss as to his sim­pli­fi­ca­tion of the com­plex local issue at hand.

My pre­vi­ous rant omit­ted impor­tant fac­tors about tele­vi­sion and espe­cially missed the whole issue of edu­ca­tion so here they are.

When the iPad came out, I spoke on sev­eral occa­sions on Japan­ese edu­ca­tion, how Japan will fall ever behind unless it’ pub­lic schools adopt elec­tronic and real­time con­tent. The direc­tor of Japan­ese pub­lish­ing asso­ci­a­tion had come out blast­ing to the media that “unless you pub­lish paper, we will never all release of dig­i­tal rights”. My ses­sion was inter­est­ing enough I appeared on prime time morn­ing TV  to show how won­der­ful iPad would be in pub­lic schools. This was May.

Things rapidly changed as the impact of iPad was start­ing to creep in by July, and these peo­ple receded their com­ments. How­ever there are too many orga­ni­za­tions, NPO and the likes that suck bud­get to stay alive. Pri­va­ti­za­tion of Edu­ca­tional mate­r­ial is going to be very impor­tant, so that it can teach the truth about the world and Japan and allow stu­dents to con­fi­dently study abroad in the future.

While there was been some strides made to make edu­ca­tion elec­tronic, this is been done at a snails pace since it involves so many peo­ple, inter­est groups, bureau­crats and politi­cians, with a lot of money dis­ap­pear­ing for noth­ing on the way. It took Japan 10 years to renew edu­ca­tional mate­r­ial. This year it added 33% more con­tent to the mate­r­ial, and fear of extra weight for the increased paper mate­r­ial, it spent sev­eral mil­lion dol­lars invent­ing a lighter and stronger paper. The same money should have been applied to devel­op­ing core elec­tronic edu­ca­tion sys­tem. Japan can­not and will not use over­seas equip­ment for main­stream edu­ca­tion con­tent aka. Apple. That’s for sure.

My crit­i­cism cit­ing Japan­ese tele­vi­sion as the sin­gle most impor­tant source of Japan­ese eco­nomic demise if of course ridicu­lous but to the point. Cable and Satel­lite TV do offer choices such as National Geo­graphic and TBS, NTV, NNN doc­u­men­taries. How­ever the price of sub­scrip­tion is still a large obsta­cle for nation wide acceptance.

Chi­nese Bond Purchases

Reg­u­lar read­ers may remem­ber that I’ve spent more than a year try­ing to knock down the idea that the United States dare not get tough with China, because we need them to keep buy­ing our bonds; as I wrote way back in May 2009, given the fact that we’re in a liq­uid­ity trap, a deci­sion by China to buy fewer of our bonds would actu­ally be doing us a favor — it would weaken the dol­lar, and help our exports.

I’ve failed, despite repeated attempts, to get through with this point here — but the Japan­ese get it. They’re com­plain­ing to China about its pur­chases of yen-denominated bonds, which they argue — cor­rectly — hurts Japan by strength­en­ing the yen.

Quick update: I should also link to this post, and quote Dean Baker again: China has an unloaded water pis­tol pointed at our head.

HFO :  So Japan­ese gov­ern­ment under­stands what is hap­pen­ing to itself, but the media and pub­lic don’t due to medai con­trol which always blames it on the US econ­omy. How­ever this morn­ing one news com­men­ta­tor did men­tion that even as the US stocks rise, Yen will get stronger and the two (US mar­ket prices and FX) are now tread­ing their sep­a­rate ways. No one men­tioned Bonds and China though.

Lost In Translation

Ah — I see that my last post was too ellip­ti­cal, mainly thanks to jet lag; peo­ple aren’t quite get­ting my point.

So: Japan does suf­fer from inad­e­quate demand; this is why it faces per­sis­tent defla­tion, why ever-fewer work­ers can get long-term employ­ment, why unem­ploy­ment has risen and work­ing hours fallen.

My point was, how­ever, that Japan’s demand fail­ure hasn’t been as severe as the raw num­bers on GDP might sug­gest. Most of the rel­a­tive decline of Japan­ese GDP com­pared with the US would prob­a­bly have hap­pened even if eco­nomic pol­icy had man­aged to avoid the defla­tion­ary trap. Japan is a depressed econ­omy, but not in a depression.

And by the same token, Japan’s fis­cal poli­cies haven’t been as utter a fail­ure as they’re often por­trayed. They haven’t cre­ated self-sustaining growth, because they’ve never been enough to restore full employ­ment and get the econ­omy out of defla­tion. But they have kept the econ­omy afloat.

Oh, and about that debt; it’s not good — but net debt is about 100 per­cent of GDP, not 200, because the BOJ holds so much of it.

The point is that it’s a more nuanced story than you usu­ally hear — not a good story by any stretch of the imag­i­na­tion, but not as ter­ri­ble as you may have heard. And given the way we’re respond­ing to our own burst bub­ble, I think we need to stop being so hard on the Japanese.

HFO :  We can con­tinue life as usual post 1989, fail but ok, but many econ­o­mists and local news media like to hype up the Armaged­don sce­nario, which unknown to Krug­man may be in the works. One of the things that both­ers me is how the sys­tem keeps alive bad debt for ages leav­ing behind a pos­si­bil­ity that if they all POP at the same time, psy­che and nerve will drive things expo­nen­tially bad.

Japan­ese Demography

I’m not the first per­son by a long shot to make this point, but it’s fairly amaz­ing how much of Japan’s rel­a­tive slide since the early 90s can be explained not by eco­nom­ics per se but by demography.

Using the Total Econ­omy Data­base — another use­ful source — I find that from 1992 to 2007 (eve of the cri­sis), Japan­ese GDP per capita fell from 88 per­cent of US GDP per capita to 76 per­cent. That sounds bad, and it is. But about two-thirds of that decline can be explained by the aging of Japan’s pop­u­la­tion. Accord­ing to the OECD fact­book, in 1992 working-age adults were 69.7 per­cent of Japan’s pop­u­la­tion, com­pared with 65.5 in the US; by 2007, the Japan­ese num­ber was down to 64, while the US num­ber was up to 67.

Demog­ra­phy is not the whole story; Japan has stayed depressed, defla­tion is a prob­lem, labor mar­kets are poor (although the trou­ble tends to show in ris­ing num­bers of freeters rather than high mea­sured unem­ploy­ment.) Still, when you look at Japan’s declin­ing share of world GDP, and even its rel­a­tive decline in per capita GDP, the biggest sin­gle cause is the declin­ing num­ber of working-age Japanese.

HFO : I am read­ing again and again how Sam­sung and Korean gov­ern­ment has pushed the OLED TV into mass pro­duc­tion by hair­line touch ahead of Japan. The OLED TV was devel­oped about the same time between these 2 coun­tries, but Japan failed to mar­ket and sell mass quan­ti­ties until Korea was well ahead in the mar­ket. Across US and even in Japan, Sam­sung pushed out Sony and oth­ers into cor­ner areas of Best Buy and other major chains, claim­ing King of HDTV dur­ing the Sum­mer Olympic sea­sons. Shorter work house in Japan­ese assem­bly lines, non-intervention and incen­tive by Japan­ese gov­ern­ment has ha to play a major role here. Korea was send­ing it’s pres­i­dents to over­seas sales pitch while Japan sends Trade Min­is­ters to such sell in events. Easy prob­lem to fix?  Should be but not for Japan. It has too many rules and  “tatemae”  to kill oppor­tu­ni­ties. Japan self inflicts itself and it knows it.

Infra­struc­ture

Some bleary-eyed thoughts from Japan on the reported admin­is­tra­tion pro­posal for $50 bil­lion in new spending:

1. It’s a good idea
2. It’s much too small
3. It won’t pass any­way — which makes you won­der why the admin­is­tra­tion didn’t pro­pose a big­ger plan, so as to at least make the point that the other party is stand­ing in the way of much needed repair to our roads, ports, sew­ers, and more– not to men­tion cre­at­ing jobs. Once again, they’re strik­ing right at the capillaries.

Beyond all that, the new ini­tia­tive is a chance for me to air one of my pet peeves: the stu­pid­ity of the claim, which you hear all the time — and you’ll hear again now — that it’s always bet­ter to pro­vide stim­u­lus in the form of tax cuts, because indi­vid­u­als know bet­ter than the gov­ern­ment what to do with their money.

Why is this claim stu­pid? Because Econ 101 tells us that there are some things the gov­ern­ment must pro­vide, namely pub­lic goods whose ben­e­fits can’t be inter­nal­ized by the market.

So sup­pose we’re going to put $50 bil­lion of resources that would oth­er­wise be idle to work. Is it bet­ter to use them to pro­duce pub­lic goods like improved roads, or pri­vate goods like more con­sumer durables? That’s not at all obvi­ous — and any­one who tells you that basic eco­nom­ics set­tles the ques­tion, that is says that devot­ing more resources to pro­duc­tion of pri­vate goods is bet­ter, doesn’t under­stand Econ 101.

And there’s a pretty good argu­ment to be made that we are, in fact, starved for pub­lic goods in this coun­try, so that it would actu­ally be a good idea to shift some resources to pub­lic goods pro­duc­tion even if we were at full employ­ment; in that case, we should def­i­nitely give pri­or­ity to pub­lic goods when try­ing to put unem­ployed resources to work.

Any­way, it’s all aca­d­e­mic right now. My response to the admin­is­tra­tion plan, at least as best as I can respond given a mas­sive case of jet lag, is a big eh.

HFO : Mr. Krugman’s opin­ion rests on 2 main rea­son for Japan’s depressed econ­omy which is by the way not in depres­sion (really, again hum?)

  1. Aging Japan­ese population
  2. Shorter work hours as a result of labor law reform

Add to this my call to bet­ter and more advanced and morally moti­vated edu­ca­tion and we can fix a few things. I don’t mind work­ing on Sat­ur­days too.
