東京オリンピックパラリンピック開催によって、私が良かったと思うことは、飲食店の禁煙が促進されたこととキャッシュレスが急速に普及したことです :-)。

日本の「地下経済」最新白書 闇で蠢く26.5兆円の真実 (SB新書)


P.S. 今回紹介した資料「日本の「地下経済」最新白書」を読んで、地下経済と国際援助の関係があることを私は初めて知りました。


私自身は完全キャッシュレスの生活をしたいと思っており、北欧のように「現金お断り」のお店がもっと日本でも増えて欲しいと考えています :-)。


< Mr. PDCAのボンジュール英語「刺激する」=「stimulate」>




地下経済は、オモテの経済を刺激することがある」を英語にする場合、「Underground economy can stimulate the real economy」とすればよいですね :-)。




PDCA (plan-do-check-action) Diary Vol. 1,446 "Underground Economy & International Aid"】


What I was glad about the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics was the promotion of smoking cessation in restaurants and the rapid spread of cashlessness :-).


As cashless progresses, the government can confirm the transfer of funds.


When watching movies, there are scenes where anti-social forces put a large amount of cash in a duralumin case and make a back deal.


The reason for using cash is that the government is not prompted to move funds, and if all business transactions become cashless, the underground economy itself can be exhausted.


However, I can't imagine the day when there will be no cash in Japan, and the underground economy will never disappear.


The government's inability to advance cashlessness seems to be due to the existence of the underground economy in addition to the opposition of SME owners.


The material to be introduced today "Japanese underground economy (Japanese only)" has a catchphrase of "The truth of USD 240 billion that goes in the dark" and the following phrases were impressive.


“The expansion of the underground economy also brings benefits to society and the economy.


The first merit is that the underground economy activates the ground economy.


The second advantage is that the expansion of the underground economy provides an opportunity to work for those who have lost their jobs.


Thirdly, the expansion of the underground economy may contribute to the efficiency of the economic system in the long run.


Fourth, this is only true for developing countries, but if the ratio of the underground economy to the overall economy is very large, the per capita GDP without the underground economy is calculated as an extremely low value.


In that case, preferential treatment in trade aid is available from international organizations such as the United Nations, IMF (International Monetary Fund) and ILO (International Labor Organization)." (Unquote)
