Japan Society and The Nikkei, Japan’s leading business newspaper, co-organize a seminar to address potential policy shifts after the 2012 U.S. presidential election, and how these changes may affect U.S.-Japan relations. As the balance of political and economic power shifts toward the Pacific, questions abound about foreign policy changes that could occur under a second term from President Obama or a Romney administration. However, domestic issues have taken center stage, and details about any potential changes have been scarce. This seminar takes an in-depth look at the candidates’ visions for the world, and examines how their policies will affect the economy and relations in the Pacific and worldwide.
