Has Abenomics Failed? Where is the Japanese Economy Heading?
October 20, 2016 - 15:00-16:30
Event at Institute for Security and Development Policy in Stockholm
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had high ambitions when he took power in December 2012, presenting ideas for an economic revival that was immediately named “Abenomics” in international media. He also underlined the importance of the participation of women in the labor market for the Japanese economy to grow. Although some developments have pointed in the right direction there are still many aspects that have remained unfulfilled.
A real expert in the field, Professor Jesper Edman from Hitotsubashi University in Tokyo, will present his views on where the Japanese economy is actually heading and what has happened to Abenomics. His presentation will be commented upon by Professor Marie Söderberg, Director of the European Institute for Japanese Studies at the Stockholm School of Economics.
