“Handsome Tax” proposed by Takuruo Morinaga, an analyst, and published on Asahi Newspaper Digital is talked at foreign sites etc.

Mr. Morinaga said “Imposing “Handsome Tax” to good looking men and collecting the unfairness pushes ugly men could find their love, and finally marriage rate would be increased.”  He proposed this “Handsome Tax” as a measure to low marriage rate relating to declining birth rate.

Specifically, he proposed
1. Double income tax to handsome men.  The other’s income tax is 10 -20% decreased.
2. The judgement of handsome or not is by female councilors chosen at random.

Only one analyst proposed this idea, and this should never be realized.  However, foreigners seemed to have some opinions to this strange idea.
