Japan's economy is poised for much more than just positive growth surprises. In 2018/19, as "Abenomics" matures into sustained private-led growth, Japan will become the envy of the world, a model case for a capitalist democracy where 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 out-compete global rivals; how demographic destiny is not a negative but a powerful positive force for both domestic demand and innovation; why public debt, central bank action and regulatory change combine to create unprecedented industrial and corporate change; where your company can profit from Japan's structural up-turn; and what forces could disrupt and derail Japan's potential for prosperity.
