Within the first weeks after taking office in late 2012, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe implemented his two arrows of Abenomics: a ¥10.3 trillion fiscal stimulus bill and a 2% target inflation rate through quantitative easing. The third arrow (structural reform) was always the most ambitious and has been the most difficult to implement. How has it progressed? What challenges remain? Will the consumption tax be raised? What can be achieved while Abe is still Prime Minister? How will Japan’s neighbors and allies be affected? Much debate remains on this pivotal policy in Japanese history. For a look at the legacy of someone who may become Japan’s longest-serving Prime Minister, G1 Global brought together a panel of passionate thought leaders.
