Japan's Economic Revival: Policy Challenges in a Globalized World

Front Cover
International Monetary Fund, Nov 4, 2008 - Business & Economics - 77 pages
How should Japan cope with the challenges posed by a shrinking and ageing population and the quickening pace of globalization? Japan has largely overcome the legacies of the post-bubble economy of the 1990s, but ongoing demographic changes and greater financial and trade integration with the global economy call for policies that foster competitiveness, increase resilience to shocks, and safeguard growth prospects. This book brings together IMF economists to discuss the ongoing policy debate. The chapters provide a comprehensive overview of the unfinished policy issues and the unfinished agenda.
