PDCA日記 Vol. 930湾岸戦争と海外送金


今回紹介する資料「堕ちたバンカー: 國重惇史の告白」は、「ある天才バンカーの半生を通して、日本のバブル時代の熱狂とその終焉を描くビジネスノンフィクション」をキャッチフレーズにしており、「湾岸戦争」部分の以下のフレーズが印象的でした。

P.S. 私自身、湾岸戦争は新聞で読んだ記憶しかありません。




< Mr. PDCAのボンジュール英語「海外送金」 = 「overseas remittance


今回出てきた「海外送金」の英訳は、「overseas remittance」になります。


湾岸戦争と海外送金」を英語で表現する場合、「Gulf War and overseas remittances」とすればよいですね😊。

PDCA (plan-do-check-action) Diary Vol. 930 "Gulf War & Overseas Remittances"

The material introduced today "Fallen Banker: Confession of Atsushi Kunishige" has the catchphrase "Business nonfiction that depicts the enthusiasm of Japan's bubble era and its end through the half-life of a genius banker" and the following phrases were impressive.

"The Gulf War that began in 1991 with the invasion of Kuwait in Iraq.

The next year, Japan, which cannot be dispatched to the military, will make a cabinet decision to contribute about $ 9 billion (1.2 trillion yen at the rate at that time) to the multinational forces.


It was Kunishige who responded to this news.


Kunishige consults with a career bureaucrat who had been acquainted with the Ministry of Finance, and repeats interviews with the executives of the North American Affairs Bureau of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs through this bureaucracy.


What is Kunishige's aim?


Kunishige aimed for a $ 9 billion remittance from Japan to the multinational forces.


In other words, remittances involving the nation of Japan have traditionally been undertaken by the Bank of Tokyo.


A few percent of the remittance fee alone is a considerable amount.


Kunishige wondered if Sumitomo Bank could make half of the $ 9 billion in remittances to the finance bureaucrats and foreign bureaucrats.


Thanks to that, Sumitomo Bank will undertake half of the $ 9 billion remittance.


Naturally, the Bank of Tokyo was furious, but it did not cover it." (Unquote)
