Read the Event Summary.

Japan and American must decide on a course of action to revive their ailing economies. In Japan, the economy is still struggling with recession, and the structural reforms proposed by Prime Minister Koizumi have yet to take effect. In the U.S., the industrial sector has lost its early 1990s splendor with the bursting of the telecoms bubble. The aftereffects of the September 11 attacks, anxiety over war with Iraq and accounting scandals have shaken the markets and hampered recovery. Now, the concern is not only how to recover, but how to avoid entering a long-term downward spiral. What kinds of strategies and reforms are necessary to revive the world’s two largest economies? Four pre-eminent thinkers gather to discuss a course of action.

Mostoshige Ito, Professor, Tokyo University
Naohiro Yashiro, President, Japan Center for Economic Research (JCER)
Ed Yardeni, Chief Investment Strategist & Managing Director, Prudential Securities Incorporated
Maria Fiorini Ramirez, Economist, Global Economics Consulting Services


Yuichi Takahashi, Editor-in-Chief, Editorial Headquarters for the Americas, Nihon Keizai, Shimbun, Inc.
