I heard that Japan is getting poor in comparison to the world because GNI was the second or third in 2002, but now is the 16th. Moreover, recent economic depression damaged Japanese finance. Therefore, there are some people who complain about the Aid to Haiti. I think they are wrong. Hannah Arendt said following effect like that “If people noticed only their surroundings, it would be a start of a dark age. I learned this words in my professor‘s class. She is completely right. As might be expected, Japan is much richer than Haiti. ODA or other aid from Japan is natural thing. It’s sure that Japan’s ODA is too expensive. Japanese government always seem to be thoughtless. Therefore, Japan have to think “what is aid ? what’s the thing they really need?” and establish a strong vision. I believe it will cut up Japan’s future.
