    “Rather than uniform, top-down, centralized, and nationwide policies, the Japanese people mostly resorted to diverse, bottom-up, decentralized, and local responses and achieved much better results than many countries that imposed lockdowns and other draconian measures.

    As the renowned economist F.A. Hayek stressed, local knowledge, or as he put it, “knowledge of people, of local conditions, and of special circumstances” is indispensable for solving real-world problems.“

    Japan does not allow immigration so there was one less problem there.

    “A record 2,829,416 foreign people were registered as residents at the end of June as more and more technical interns and workers enter Japan amid a severe labor shortage, government data showed Friday.

    The figure was up 3.6 percent from the previous high set at the end of last year, according to the Immigration Services Agency.“

    Sorry, not buying that a densely populated country of 126 million only had 16,000 cases and only 846 deaths. Fake numbers.
