Just over one year since Barack Obama swept into office and mere months since the Democratic Party of Japan shook off 55 years of virtually uninterrupted LDP rule, it is clear that global economic conditions are improving, albeit more slowly in mature markets hampered by high unemployment than in Asia’s emerging markets. Concurrent with political change have been efforts to affect regulatory reform to prevent or at least mitigate the effects of the next global economic downturn. How will regulatory reforms impact global business and what role does politics play in their formation? How are the new Democratic regimes in Japan and the U.S. shaping reform efforts and are business lobbies’ fears warranted? Our experts explore these issues and offer their thoughts on the economic and business outlook for the U.S., Asia, Japan, and Europe.
