英 独立したメディア規制機関を提言 NHKニュース

The economy: Doing so-so | The Economist

Not all public spending is wasted. But it is striking that 15 years ago public spending as a proportion of GDP was at similar levels in France and Germany and much higher in Sweden, whereas now France’s public spending, at almost 57% of GDP, is more than five points above Sweden’s and almost ten points above Germany’s (see chart 2). It is not obvious that French citizens reap commensurate extra benefits. France has 90 civil servants for every 1,000 inhabitants (compared with just 50 in Germany), which adds up to a huge 22% of the workforce, far above the European average.

やっぱりやめられない!? 原発ビジネス 「イギリス・リトアニア・ベトナム」にどっぷり浸かる 日立の打算(2) - リアルライブ

その背景にあるのが2011年度に1600億円だった原子力事業の売上高を、'20年度には2倍超の3600億円に拡大させようとの計画である。日立はハードディスク駆動装置や中小型液晶パネルなど、不採算事業のリストラに大ナタを振るったが、巨大市場が見込める原子力事業は聖域として温存した。国内市場の拡大が絶望的になった今、世間からどう陰口を叩かれようと原発との心中に舵を切ったといえば話は早い。 ホライズンの買収と、正式受注が秒読み段階を迎えたリトアニアの陰に隠れているが、日立はフィンランド、カナダ、ポーランド、ベトナムなどでも受注活動を展開している。同社単独のケースもあれば、原発事業でタッグを組む米ゼネラル・エレクトリック(GE)との二人三脚で交渉しているケースもある。各国の電力事情も絡んで対応はさまざまだが、ライバル陣営が「そこまでやるか」と目を剥くのがベトナムで打ち込んだ強力なクサビである。

スペインの銀行不良債権比率、9月は過去最悪の10.7%に | Reuters



フランスは長年、競争力をドイツに奪われてきた。さらに、ドイツがコストを削減し、大規模な改革を推し進めたことで、その傾向は加速している。通貨切り下げという選択肢を持たないため、フランスは公的支出と債務に頼ってきた。 ほかのEU諸国が政府の役割を抑えてきたのに、フランスでは公的支出が国内総生産(GDP)の57%近くを占めるまでに増加してきた。この割合はユーロ圏で最大だ。1981年以降、財政を均衡させた年は1度もなく、81年当時はGDP比22%だった公的債務が今や90%を超えるまでに膨らんでいる。

Greece’s debt burden: How to end the agony | The Economist

But the most indebted started to recover only when their debts, including those owed to official creditors, were slashed. In Europe, Poland also provides a precedent: its economy took off in the 1990s after it too was given a break by its creditors.

That Mr Obama won is thus a victory not just for him personally but for macroeconomics.

Bad press : Japan’s media have played a large part in exacerbating the effects of a fraud.

The poor quality of journalism that led to the story being so widely reported was not an isolated incident in the coverage of science, in Japan or elsewhere. The Yomiuri Shimbun’s presentation of Moriguchi’s ‘accomplishments’ was particularly disappointing. But other newspapers, including the Nihon Keizai Shimbun, have now admitted to having run unverified stories about Moriguchi over the past decade. Given the esoteric nature of the studies involved, reporting on science can be intimidating. So here are some practical steps to help a journalist challenge a specialist.
