Nikkei, Japan’s leading business media company, Japan Exchange Group (JPX) and Japan Society jointly hold a seminar exploring the outlook for Prime Minister Abe’s aggressive economic policies. While the impact of Abenomics has been most visible in a weaker yen and higher stock prices, the long-term effects of his "three arrows" — monetary easing, fiscal stimulus and growth strategies — remain to be seen. Atsushi Nakajima of the Research Institute of Economy, Trade and Industry, Atsushi Saito of JPX, and Paul Sheard of Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services discuss these policies and their repercussions for Japan and the global economy in a panel discussion moderated by The Wall Street Journal’s John Bussey.
