Turning Less Japanese

McDonald's looks to offload a third of its company-owned Japanese stores - CCB

I Don't blame McDonald's for selling out there, I believe they have had many labor issues over there for years and the future looks like a difficult labor market, not worth the effort and resources for the miniscule little more money they get on the bottom-line.

Hmmmmm....a private equity company for the store sales on Japan. MCD has been denying for years that they are going to cash our their real estate investments by using a similar domestic tactic. Cashing out the Mc-Opco units to O/O's and then cashing out the real-estate to or through a private equity group would seem to go along with such a plan.
