Congressional testimony and The Swan
I'm in Osaka this weekend to appear on Yomiuri TV's Wake Up! tomorrow morning. My wandering around the business district near my hotel this afternoon produced lots of thoughts about Japan (do I really need three people doing my hair simultaneously in a country with relatively high wages?) but more on that later. Back in my hotel, in between watching snatches of a Japanese version of The Swan (where it's okay for the host to tell a fat guest who was bullied into adulthood for her weight and looks "don't you think you should just lose some weight?"), I have realized I never posted my Congressional testimony before the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission. In case you missed it in the last sentence, here it is. More on Wake Up! tomorrow after I finish the show.
