Will robot nannies save Japan’s economy?

One of the main problems that is plaguing Japan’s economy is that more than half of all Japanese women quit their job after giving birth to their first child. If more of the women returned back to work, there would be an increase in household income, which would lead to an increase in consumption, profits, and wages. It may be pertinent to introduce robot nannies to the Japanese to actually help boost the economy.
