Japan has got what it takes to help shape a more prosperous America. On top of unrivalled excellence in public infrastructure, Japan’s economy has re-invented itself to an extent much greater than generally appreciated—corporate Japan is innovative, competitive, and a better steward of capital; consumer Japan is asset rich, debt-free, and enjoying rising purchasing power; and political Japan is now focused on leveraging domestic strength for greater global leadership, starting with America.
What exactly can Abe offer for Trump’s “America First” policy? How real is Japan’s domestic revival? Could U.S.-Japan economic integration become the new "gold standard" in a post-TPP world? In the age of Trump and Abe, which Japanese industries offer the best investment and growth opportunities?
