Overview

This event is part of a Chatham House research project on Abenomics, and will be the first in a series of discussions focusing on the opportunities and risks associated with the economic policy mix implemented by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his cabinet. Participants will offer different perspectives on the root causes of Japan’s ‘Lost Decades’, evaluating the effectiveness and the probability of success of Abenomics. The event will also explore what lessons, if any, from Japan’s experience might be applicable to Europe’s current economic predicament. 

This event is by invitation only.
