At the forefront of growth and development in Asia and the Pacific

The National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) Japan Project Meeting

Event | 1 August 2016 ADBI, Tokyo

Purpose

To produce studies on issues related to Japan’s economy, including trade dynamics, monetary and fiscal policy, inflation, finance, labor markets and social protection.

Background

Sustained economic growth can significantly help reduce poverty. Countries that have enjoyed long periods of economic growth have witnessed a marked decline in poverty. As the most advanced economy in Asia, Japan can provide useful lessons for the rest of Asia:

  • It has achieved a high level of economic development.
  • It faces structural issues that are likely to confront other Asian countries, including an aging population, a hollowing out of manufacturing, and high levels of government debt.
  • It has experienced financial crises and natural disasters.
  • Growth stagnation has triggered policy responses, including “Abe-nomics”.

Objectives

To produce studies on Japan’s economy, including trade dynamics, monetary and fiscal policy, inflation, finance, labor markets and social protection.
