1.4 million for feeding 6 Koala's?
What do they give those poor animals to eat? They eat eucalyptus leaves, what plants do they give them?
But those koalas make more people go to the Osaka zoo, so more people coming to the zoo, more money they earn, more people they need to work there, less people without a job.
And more people coming to the zoo of Osaka is also good for the local economy, and a better local economy means, more local jobs, means even more people with a job.
And more people with a job, means less homeless people.
Good point. While I dispute anything that any government does, I must admit that an argument against feeding koala bears as a tourist attractment to make money while there are homeless people starving would be an argument against voluntary exchange. Of course, since the government is doing it, we can complain that that money was stolen from people.
I'm suprised there are so few homeless people in Japan
. How can anyone possibly pay rent in Japan
? I visted Tokyo for about a week, and that city ate up my whole life savings
