Conference Description
How can the U.S., Europe, and Asia avoid the mistakes Japan made during its so-called “lost decades,” or the twenty years after falling into recession during the 1990s? Focusing on the dimensions of economics, security and history issues, and education and employment, panelists examine the policy decisions taken during this period and the lessons that can be learned from Japan’s experiences. The three sessions explore how countries can deal with common challenges, including fiscal deficit, international security and growing social inequality.
