Here Comes a Vulture. By Ichihanahana

This is a news report about a “vulture” dated July 15, 2010. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) issued an annual report on Japanese economy on July 14, 2010 and suggested that, beginning in fiscal 2011, there should be "a modest consumption tax increase” to stabilize Japan’s finances that are among the worst in developed countries. The increase became the biggest cause of the defeat of the Democratic Party of Japan, the major party in the recent upper house election. The IMF said, “’It is necessary for Japan to gradually increase the consumption tax’ as a part of “early and credible” fiscal adjustment to reduce its debts that amount to 200% of Japan’s gross domestic product (GDP).

以下は、7月15日マスコミが報道した“ハゲタカ”ニュースです。<国際通貨基金(IMF)は7月14日、日本経済に関する年次審査報告を発表し、先進国で最悪の水準にある財政健全化のため、2011年度から消費税を「段階的に」引き上げるべきだと提言した。消費税増税は先の参院選で民主党大敗の最大要因となった争点だが、IMFは国内総生産(GDP)比200%の日本の債務残高を解消するための「早急で信頼性の高い」財政改革の一環として、「段階的引き上げは必要」と指摘した>。 風刺漫画(壱花花)
