Only a few short months ago, Japanese growth was so high that some bold forecasters talked about the Japanese economy growing at 3 to 4 percent for several years to come. Today, Japan is in the midst of a “pause” that has so far produced two consecutive quarters of zero growth. Optimists, including the Japanese government, say the “pause” is merely a short interruption in a steadily strengthening recovery. Others say that the “pause” is a sign that Japan faces at least a few more years of lackluster growth. Join this panel of economic pundits for a variety of perspectives on what the future holds for Japan’s economy.
