ANU Japan Club seminar series: Can Abenomics save Japan?

Are you interested in Abenomics, the economic policies spearheaded by current Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe? Don’t know quite what it entails, but want to learn more?

The ANU Japan Club, in collaboration with the Australia-Japan Research Centre and ANU Japan Centre, would like to invite you to our next seminar, ‘Can Abenomics Save Japan?’ 

The premise of Abenomics is reviving the Japanese economy after two decades of stagnation (the “Lost Two Decades”,  失われた20年) through a strategy comprising the ‘Three Arrows’ (三本の矢):

-      A massive increase in fiscal stimulus;

-      Aggressive monetary easing by the Bank of Japan;

-      Structural reforms to the Japanese economy, aimed at boosting the country’s competitiveness

The seminar will focus on explaining the basic structure and framework of Abenomics, its impact on the Japanese economy so far and how it will impact the future.

No prior knowledge of economics is assumed.
