It is said that the Japanese love saving money. Is it true?
Japanese like saving money?
People want to be assured lifelong or long, to say the least.
This ethics ? was taught in the Meiji Era( 1868 – 1912 ) when many countries tried to increase weapons to use in wars.
Saving is good for the government to increase power at that time.
The concept of saving has since been loved by people in Japan.
There is an argument.
If people spend money, of course, in good ways, it will increase economic power in general, and people will get more wealthy, many economists say.
Of course, ‘good’ ways are hard to come up with.
Anyway, it is one of the Japanese traditions.
I talked about Yu Darvish, a baseball player in Chicago, who challenged the traditional way of using a chopstick.
It is another traditional way which could be challenged.
It seems to be similar to the ‘Giver’ concept, where the money is given (?) to people and it eventually increases the money of other people.
My father loves saving, my mother loves spending, LOL.
