Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Would it be culturally acceptable for PM Kan to decapitate the management of TEPCO, declare them to have been an obstacle to handling the problem and then to proceed with alacrity?

I suspect this may have happened already.

However, suppose you're PM Kan and have removed the TEPCO management. Who do you put in charge of the operations since you yourself don't have the expertise? I would hope the higher-ranking technical people at TEPCO are already in charge of the operations.

Economics is politics by other means
