I was on CNBC Asia again today to preview the Kan-Ozawa showdown.
In case you’re wondering why I’ve been silent during this campaign, the reason is simple. The DPJ scheduled its election the same week as my doctoral exams (how rude! – ed.) and so I have not been able to follow this electoral campaign to anywhere near the degree I would have liked. Apparently appearing on TV to talk about Japanese politics is how I unwind after a day spent writing.
