Abenomics

Posted on Feb 19, 2014 in Business, International Trade, Japan | 0 comments

Is Abenomics Working? Japan America Society of Colorado (JASC) welcomes Professor Edward J. Lincoln, renowned lecturer and expert on Japan Economics and Business, to Colorado! Friday, February 21, 11am – 1pm KPMG 8th floor conference room, downtown Denver (1225 17th Street) $15/JASC members; $25/non-members; RSVP here. Topic: Prime Minister Abe has been telling foreign audiences that “Japan is Back.”  Since becoming Prime Minister at the beginning of 2013 he has pursued a three-pronged economic recovery plan dubbed “Abenomics” that consists of monetary quantitative easing, fiscal stimulus, and further deregulation.  Over the past year, economic growth is up, the stock market is up, and deflation has abated.  And yet, it remains unclear how successful Abenomics will be in putting Japan back on a path of more robust economic growth.  Professor Edward Lincoln of George Washington University will discuss Abenomics and the evidence for and against its success. Speaker: Thanks to the efforts of our 2014 Education Committee Chairperson, Patricia Nelson, JASC is honored to host Professor Edward J. Lincoln for a lunchtime lecture in downtown Denver, CO. Professor Lincoln is an adjunct professor at Columbia University, where he teaches a course on the Japanese economy.  In addition, he is a professorial lecturer at George Washington University, where he teaches a course on the East Asian economies.  At Columbia, Professor Lincoln is also a Research Associate of the Center for the Japanese Economy and Business.   From 2006 to 2011, he was director of the Center for Japan-U.S. Business and Economic Studies and professor of Economics at the Stern School of Business, New York University. Professor Lincoln’s research interests include contemporary structure and change in the Japanese economy, East Asian economic integration, and U.S. economic policy toward Japan and East Asia.  He is the author of nine books and monographs, including Winners Without Losers: Why Americans Should Care More About Global Economic Policy (Cornell University Press, 2007), East Asian Economic Regionalism (The Council on Foreign Relations and the Brookings Institution, 2004), Arthritic Japan: The Slow Pace of Economic Reform (Brookings, 2001), and Troubled Times: U.S.-Japan Economic Relations in the 1990s (Brookings, 1998). An earlier book, Japan Facing Economic Maturity (Brookings, 1988) received the Masayoshi Ohira Award for outstanding books on the Asia-Pacific region. Earlier in his career, Professor Lincoln was a senior fellow at  both the Brookings Institution (1984-1993 and 1996-2001) and the Council on Foreign Relations (2002-2006).  In the mid-1990s, he served as Special Economic Advisor to Ambassador Walter Mondale at the American Embassy in Tokyo. Professor Lincoln received his Bachelor’s degree from Amherst College, his M.A. in both economics and East Asian Studies at Yale University, and his Ph.D. in economics also at Yale University. Special thanks: Funding to bring Professor Lincoln to Colorado is being provided by the National Association of Japan America...
