Despite making a quick recovery from the devastating earthquake and tsunamis in the Tohoku region, Japan is facing more challenges with its political instability, appreciation of the yen and energy security. What would be the desirable future direction of Japan’s energy, economy and politics in the 21st century? Stanford Professor Emeritus Daniel Okimoto, a specialist on the political economy of Japan, discusses where the U.S. and Japan stand in the global economy and offers a roadmap for Japan’s steady, sustainable pathway forward.
