Japanese Government Wants To Tax Handsome Men To Increase Country Fertility Rate

We wrote previously about the extreme lack of libido in Japan which is leading the country to having the lowest fertility rate in all developed nations.

The birthrate is falling fast. By 2060, the population is expected to go down by a third, and, by 2100, if trends continue, by 61 percent. In 2011, sales of adult diapers in Japan exceeded those of baby diapers. It’s an urgent national problem: there isn’t enough procreation.

Bloomberg published recently a fascinating article entitled: “The Japanese Government Is Trying To Figure Out How To Get Its People To Have More Sex”

Morinaga Takuro, an economic analyst and TV personality, [...] has suggested a “handsome tax”:If we impose a handsome tax on men who look good to correct the injustice only slightly, then it will become easier for ugly men to find love, and the number of people getting married will increase.

The entire article is an interesting read: http://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2015-01-25/the-japanese-government-is-trying-to-figure-out-how-to-get-its-people-to-have-more-sex
