Stagnation, two lost decades, government debt, zombies. And, reform, industrial restructuring, policies to increase Japan’s “financial metabolism”. What is the current state of the Japanese economy, what are the important metrics to assess it properly, and how should we evaluate the successes of the “Abenomics” reform programs? Join a conversation with Takeo Hoshi about his two new books, “The Japanese Economy” (with Taka Ito) and “The Political Economy of the Abe Government and Abenomics Reforms” (co-edited with Phillip Lipscy).
