State of the Nation: Japan – ‘The promise beyond Japan’s lost decades’

Asialink Business and PwC are delighted to support the upcoming release of ‘Examining Japan’s Lost Decades’, edited by Yoichi Funabashi, Chairman, Rebuild Japan Initiative Foundation and Barak Kushner, Senior University Lecturer, University of Cambridge. 

This new report explores the so-called 'lost decades' which in turn leads to the discussion on the rebuilding of Japan and the future of arguably the most advanced economy in the world. An international team of renowned scholars and experts critically examined the issues, and specifically, why certain policies failed, why alternatives were not taken and how policymakers should have reacted and could respond more effectively in the future. The lessons learned from Japan sheds light on how the EU, US and Asian countries can deal with common challenges, including demographic shifts, fiscal deficit, free trade and international security.
