Enhancing Abenomics: Can Monetary and Fiscal Policies Do More?

27 January 2017 - 10:00am to 11:30am

Chatham House, London


John Greenwood, Chief Economist, Invesco 
Andrew Filardo, Head of Monetary Policy, BIS
Eric Lonergan, Global Macro Portfolio Manager, M&G 
Andrew Rozanov, Associate Fellow, International Economics Department



Four years into the policy experiment, and despite the initial wide-spread enthusiasm and some promising early indicators, Abenomics has under-delivered. For many commentators, it increasingly appears at the risk of failure. Andrew Rozanov presents his findings and policy recommendations aimed at enhancing and strengthening Abenomics. 

This workshop will focus on the first two arrows – ‘bold’ monetary and ‘flexible’ fiscal policies. The focus of the subsequent workshop will be exclusively on the third arrow – ‘growth-enhancing’ structural reforms. 

Throughout both seminars, our objective will be to explore how Japan’s policy-makers can increase their chances of success, by making the three arrows more comprehensive, consistent and coordinated.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
