Instead of daylight saving time
The government is planning to ask companies and other organizations to start one hour early this summer. It was M. Friedman that it was a trouble, arguing for flexible exchange rate. This is a piece of evidence that the government and bureaucracy don't know introductory level of macroeconomics. I hope a Japanese macroeconomist of good statue will stand up and say: "Hey, why don't we have daylight saving time instead? We have had a flexible exchange rate which has made our life so easy." I'm afraid, then, the bureaucracy would abolish the flexible exchange rate.
