Check out this speech by “His Excellency” (usually reserved for royals) Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in New York City on Wednesday, September 21, 2016.
Abe starts out his speech with a joke:
I am Shinzo Abe, not Mario.(laughter)
Like Mario, though, I can keep on fighting, fighting to boost Japan’s economy. (no laughter)
Japan’s economy is no joke. PM Abe has been around now for a second time since December 2012. What new does he offer in 2016? We will watch and you will decide what should be the priority for Japan in relation to the global economy and global society.
