Will Japan’s response to the recent Tohoku Earthquake send Japan toward a debt-fueled financial crisis or a resurgence of economic growth? Are the Japanese people inherently risk-averse or have the recent disasters provided an impetus for a renaissance in Japanese innovation? What indicators should we look for to know which path Japan is on? As the first part of a series that aims to dispel myths about Japan, a group of leading financial experts answer the question: How will Japan surprise the world after the quake?
