Our 54-year old Auckland resident made his fortune in a housing related business back in Shikoku. There was a time when he felt a certain pride that the money he paid in taxes went to support his homeland, to provide education and build roads.
But he became disillusioned when growing budget deficits dried up cash flows to rural areas such as Shikoku.
It increasingly became apparent that all resources, be it people, things or money, got sucked up by Tokyo and big corporations.
Awww! All the money this guy made from his corporation ended up going to someone else’s bigger corporation? Shucks. He just needed to be friendlier with politicians. (Or, y’know, aim his marketing at Tokyo and big corporations to “suck” the money back.)
