*He is Present Prime Minister in Japan, Yukio Hatoyama.

How is your Happy New Year for 2010! I wish you happiness, health and success this year, and the world would be good this year. Especially, economy all over the world was bad last year excluding a part of country. Economy is important as well as the environment.

There was a change of regime power in Japan last year. However, a new political power only makes a new problem with US. The rumor of the Prime Minister(Hatoyama) alternation has spread already though a present Prime Minister assumed the position last September. The Prime Minister in Japan changes every year in these years and the foreign country is amazed very much. However, some political scientists say that the head of state changes because the country is steady. Certainly, a long-term head of state exists in a part of country, and those countries are mostly unstable. But I don't know what is good. Anyway, probably, the Prime Minister will change again in this year.
