This paper discusses the Japanese prime minister, Koizumi's unique and radical reform plans, including his restructuring plans, the elimination of bad debt from the banking sector, a privatization of public enterprises , a repair of the country’s social security and taxation systems, and large cuts to public spending.
From the Paper:"Recently, Japan's political world has been in a wild turmoil, especially ever since the new prime minister, Junichiro Koizumi was appointed a prime minister on April 26th of 2001 from Japan's Liberal Democratic Party. Koizumi is the most popular prime minister ever in Japan's history. According to McMillan on CNN, Koizumi had won as high as 85% approval rating from the Japanese people as of June 2001, compared to the single digit figures of the previous Prime Minister, Yoshiro Mori. Koizumi, a popular and a strong leader, is a first in Japanese government. His radical political and economical revelations give a glimpse of hope in a diminishing Japanese economy. Is Koizumi the reformer Japan needed? Or will he bring destruction to the traditional Liberal Democratic Party, and also his radical reform plans put the country and as well as the global economy in further economic hardship?"
