Dec. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Japan's social welfare crisis is not simply about the aging population. The nation also has more than 20,000 children on the waiting-list for day-care centers, which means their mothers can't get back to work. As Bloomberg's Aika Nanao reports, the shortage of places is a challenge for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who wants more women in the workforce to revive the economy. (Source: Bloomberg)
