Nobel Prize-winner Joseph E. Stiglitz and other eminent economists from the U.S. and Japan debate the future of the Japanese economy in the midst of a global economy in flux.
With quantitative easing on the way out in the United States, and continuing low oil prices, the flow of global money is set to change. What does this mean for Japan as it seeks to end deflation through Abenomics? Is it really possible to pursue both fiscal discipline and growth policies at the same time? Experts analyze the possible challenges from a global perspective.
We present a 360° debate that places Japan's current economic situation in its historical context, while also drawing connections with the universal issues of globalization and increasing inequality.
