Strategy for Japanese Economic Recovery (Dr. Haruo SHIMADA, Tokyo Metropolitan Univ. Board of Trustees Chairman)

post date : 2018.09.20

With social security costs in Japan increasing due to the declining birthrate and aging society, how can fiscal reform be carried out? What is the Bank of Japan’s exit strategy for its quantitative and qualitative monetary easing, and how can a Japanese economic recovery be brought about?


The FPCJ has invited a leading economics expert Dr. Haruo Shimada, Tokyo Metropolitan University Board of Trustees Chairman, to speak about the strategy for Japanese economic recovery. In a book he recently wrote, Dr. Shimada went over the key points of Abenomics and clearly described the remedies to bring about a Japanese economic recovery.


He has held many important positions including a professor at Keio University, director of the Fujitsu Research Institute’s Economic Research Center, president of the Chiba University of Commerce, a member of the Council on Economic and Fiscal Policy and a Special Advisor for Economic and Fiscal Policy to the Cabinet Office, and since 2017 has been chairman of the Tokyo Metropolitan University Board of Trustees.
