A charismatic economist, Kazuyo Katsuma, advocates “Creating A Child-Friendly Society”

The government reported that Japan’s birth rate is declining for the 35th consecutive year. The results say that the graying of society and the fall in birthrate are accelerating. The Japanese rate of societal graying was worse than Italy and Germany.

Some people are trying to solve this problem. One of the representatives is a charismatic economist, Kazuyo Katsuma. She advocates “creating a child-friendly society”.
