Japan labour data 'incorrectly collected since 2004' - The Straits Times

Japan may have underpaid billions of yen in unemployment benefits after it emerged that the government has been incorrectly collecting labour market data for as long as 15 years.
Officials are supposed to gather data from all firms with 500 or more employees but in Tokyo, only about one-third of 1,400 such firms were surveyed, according to a civil servant at the labour ministry... According to public broadcaster NHK, the problems could date back as far as 2004.
A ministry official speaking on condition of anonymity told AFP that the problem could have resulted in underpayment of unemployment benefits and industrial injury insurance benefits.

Venezuela’s annual inflation surges to 1.7 million percent | Business Recorder

MacKenzie Bezos Could Become World's Richest Woman With Divorce - Bloomberg

MacKenzie Bezos’s divorce from Amazon.com Inc. founder Jeff Bezos could make her the world’s richest woman.

Neither the Bezoses nor Amazon have commented on the likely division of the couple’s assets, including a 16 percent stake in the company. But without an agreement stipulating otherwise, their wealth would almost certainly be divided equally, according to Karin Lundell, a partner at law firm Rower LLC in New York.

Paris nudist restaurant undone by scanty custom | AFP.com

The first nudist restaurant in the French capital is being forced to close because it cannot put enough bums on seats.

But to avoid financial embarrassment, twins Mike and Stephane Saada said they were having to close... The restaurant in the east of Paris opened amid a blaze of publicity in November 2017.
