定量的分析は一般に説得力があり証明力が強いと考えられます。他方、数字は時々刻々動くものである上に、数字の取り方や解釈の仕方などにより結論は変わり得るので、定量的分析が完全に客観的・固定的であるとももちろん言えません。そもそも、国別ランキングは、分析者などの言語や思考の壁によるのか、あくまで個人的な感覚では「本当にそうか?」と思わせるものが少なくありません。。。などなど。

概括的に傾向は掴みつつも、数字やランキングに一喜一憂せず、改革・改善のために地道に研鑽を重ねていくしかないのでしょう。

“The Creation and Destruction of Value” 価値の創造と破壊 Vol.5

(All the below links are in English.)

Vol.5 2008年世界金融危機(第3章―1)

 2008年金融危機が先鋭化するにつれ、20世紀のGreat Depression(世界大恐慌)時の下降局面を想起させる脱グローバリゼーション現象が出てきた。カネ、モノ、人、の流れの減少である。

 第一に、カネの流れの減少である。
 米国の金融機関は、“lender of last resort”(最後の貸し手。参考:Central banks as lender of last resort: experiences during the 2007-2010 crisis and lessons for the future | Dietrich Domanski, Richhild Moessner, and William Nelson。)として金融当局や中央銀行を当てにしているにもかかわらず、国内向けには必ずしも貸し出しに積極的にならなかった。このため、例えば、米国政府によるAIGの救済で恩恵を受けたのは、大口の取引を有していたドイツ銀行、クレディ・リヨネ、UBSと外国金融機関であった。金融危機は、米国において、国際金融の繋がりへの根本的な疑問を呼び起こした。
 また、米国外からも、RBSのような損失が出た金融機関について「RBSの損失の殆ど全ては、米国内での営業上の住宅ローン担保証券商品などのサブプライム・モーゲージにおけるものであり、蘭ABN Amroを吸収したことによる(参考:Banking bailout: The rise and fall of RBS | Gordon Rayner)。英国国民のカネで銀行がこのような無責任な経営をしたことは、間違いだ。」とのブラウン英首相(当時)による批判があった。このとおり、英国政府による救済の重要部分は、RBSの外国支店や外国での事業を売却することであった。

Brexit Lords have a cheek to complain about EU democracy | @nick_clegg
– It is ridiculous for a group of unelected British peers to criticise the lack of accountability of EU institutions –
[Excerpt] …With more than 800 members, the House of Lords is only second to China’s National People’s Congress in size and is about as undemocratic: unique in Europe, its members can revise and amend the laws of the land without anyone actually being elected…
Yet this obvious inconsistency appears to have escaped Lord Lawson et al when they berate the EU as “profoundly undemocratic”. I find what they do every day in the House of Lords profoundly undemocratic too.
Similarly, Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, Chris Grayling and the other Brexit ministers appear to be entirely untroubled that they serve in a Government that garnered no more than 24 per cent of the eligible vote…
… It took the EU almost 30 years, for instance, to agree a common definition of chocolate … A body that takes three decades to define chocolate can be described as many things — not least slow and bureaucratic — but an undemocratic conspiracy is hardly one of them…

Brexit and the union: Tug of war | @TheEconomist
– Brexit could lead to a second Scottish independence referendum. But the place to fret about most is Northern Ireland –
[Excerpt] …Remainers have tried to use the Scottish card to strengthen their hand in England by warning that Brexit would trigger a second independence referendum which…a resurgent Scottish Nationalist Party (SNP) might win…
…a month ago it lost its overall majority in the Scottish parliament… And even if she were able to call a second referendum, Ms Sturgeon cannot risk it… The example of Quebec suggests that two lost votes…for decades…
…Oil prices are half as high as then, so an independent Scotland would face even bigger economic and fiscal difficulties. After Brexit, the EU might be more welcoming to a Scotland seeking membership, but it would still object to its keeping the pound instead of adopting the euro. And if a post-Brexit United Kingdom ended free movement of people from the EU, that might mean erecting a border between north and south…
…Farming matters more in Northern Ireland than on the mainland, and it depends more on EU subsidies. Links to Ireland are crucial: it takes 34% of Northern Irish exports…
Ireland is the EU country most worried about Brexit. Irish ministers regularly state their opposition… Britain is Ireland’s biggest export market, and… Dublin to London is the world’s second-busiest international air route…

姉妹都市 Vol.3(Tripartite Economic Alliance ロサンゼルスLA=オークランドAK=広州GZ 三市経済連携 Vol.1)

今日は”サミット”の話、と言っても先月下旬の議長国日本・伊勢志摩G7の話ではありません。〔以下ツイッターリンクは中国の広州市Guangzhouも含めてEnglish、日本の各市町のホームページはそれぞれ。〕

ロサンゼルス市(LA、人口380万人、アメリカ。参考:@MayorOfLA 市長)・オークランド市(AK、市人口40万人強・都市圏人口150万人、ニュージーランド。参考:@Auckland_NZ 市役所)・広州市(GZ、人口1300万人、中国。参考:@Guangzhou_City 市役所)の相互に姉妹都市である三市による Tripartite Economic Summit 2016 三市経済サミット が先月中旬にオークランドで開催されました。21世紀の都市間交流のあり方を打ち立てるべく2014年11月に世界初の三市経済連携協定(Tripartite Economic Alliance agreement)が結ばれ、初回”サミット”が昨年6月にロサンゼルスで開催されたとのことです。

都市間交流・地域間交流は一対一・文化交流という形である印象がありますが、太平洋を跨いだ三大都市の継続的な経済連携枠組みで世界初というのは第一印象としてはインパクトがあります。もちろん細部を少しずつ継続的に理解して行く必要がありますが、民間企業が収益を上げるのに役に立つ経済連携の形を取れば地方公共団体にも(もちろん中央政府にも)予算的労働的に負担がかからないということは言えます。また、人間で言えば、二人の方が突っ込んだ内容を話せるけど三人以上の枠組みの方が派手だったり長持ちしたりもする(あくまで参考:下記※)、というような感じでしょうか。従来型交流と適宜並行して進むと良さそうです。
なお、上記三市の日本の姉妹都市は、ロサンゼルス市とは名古屋市(参考:名古屋市英語ホームページ)、オークランド市とは大阪市(参考:大阪市英語ホームページ)・福岡市(参考:福岡市英語ホームページ)・富岡町(友好都市。参考:福島県富岡町ホームページ。)・宇都宮市(参考:宇都宮市ホームページ)・品川区(参考:品川区英語ホームページ)、広州市とは福岡市、のようです。また、広州市の姉妹都市には、当都市経済連携には入っておらず、ニュージーランドとは隣国かつ同盟国であるオーストラリアのシドニー市(参考:@cityofsydney 市役所)もあり、先月で両市姉妹都市30年になり喜ばしいとの報道が何度か目に入ってきました。シドニー市の姉妹都市には日本の名古屋市もあります。

※ 各人が手抜き無しに努力を怠らないチームの人数は、例えばWhy Less Is More in Teams | Mark de Rond では、4人とされています。他方、適度な頑張りが必要となる姉妹都市経済連携のような組織間の持続的試みにおいては、検証等必要ですが、各者が一定程度以上望んでいれば3者というのが一番長持ちしそうだと第一感では思いました。

日本のガラパゴス症候群 Vol.4(勤務等形態)

本稿の勤務・雇用・経営という大きなテーマについても、基本的には弊社が承る業務の範囲外であるため、深くは触れません。二十年以上に亘って感じてきた点と関連情報を日本語で簡単に挙げておきます。

日本をガラパゴス化・停滞させているのは、正に日本式の勤務・雇用・経営であると感じています。例えば、ネット検索で見つけた出口治明ライフネット生命保険代表取締役会長blog(日本語)は端的に状況を表しており、この原稿から二年半経った今でもさほど大きな変化は無いように定性的には感じられます。企業も政府も組織を動かすのは人間ですから、個々の人間の能力が努力等によって発揮向上されまたそうされ易い合理的な状況ができているようにしておかなければ組織全体が停滞する、というのは論理的です。そして結局、個々の停滞が国全体の停滞となります。さらにざっくり言うならば、この点も定量的検証等が必要ですが、東西冷戦時代の右肩上がり成長の成功記憶がある日本は、今までやってきた延長上でのガラパゴス化に走り易いように感じられます。

そろそろ、まず、社会全体の大きな建前だけは、完全成果主義に一気に変えてしまわないと、個人の能力が伸びず、会社も潰れ、日本経済もさらに停滞するように感じています。成果や能力などを判断するのは人間ですし、組織や業務などによって判断基準ももちろん違うので、一律に同じ方向に同じ速度で変わっていくはずがなく、そこはやはり個別の人間や組織などに任せるしかありませんが。
