Be Fruitful and Multiply

One of the perks to working in Japan during a recession is the pro-creative ways companies are dealing with it. Take Canon for example. To combat the growing trend of a dwindling population, twice a week they are setting aside a 12-hour work day and encouraging staff to go home early and make babies. I have to give the Japanese credit for being aware of the situation and selling the solution in an unorthodox way. CNN has the bedtime story.
