According to a Kyodo News survey, the six new Cabinet ministers appointed late last month by Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi are averaging 36 million yen (roughly US $290,000) each in assets. This figure excludes stockholdings and ordinary deposit savings, which were too difficult to calculate. This average value for Cabinet member holding is down 77 million yen from last year’s average.
