Japan’s economy is poised for much more than just positive growth. As Abenomics matures into sustained, private-led growth, Japan will become the envy of the world—a model case for a capitalist democracy in which rising productivity, increasing shareholder returns, and cutting-edge innovation go hand in hand with social stability, relative income equality, and graceful aging. Too good to be true?
Learn why the new leaders of corporate Japan will outcompete global rivals, how demographic destiny is not a negative but rather a powerful, positive force for domestic demand and innovation, and why public debt, action by the central bank, and regulatory change combine to create unprecedented industrial and corporate transformation. Also find out how your company can profit from Japan’s structural upturn and what forces could disrupt and derail Japan’s potential for prosperity.
