Watch video of Three Scenarios for Japan's Global Future
Rochelle Kopp
Oct 10, 2010 05:05 PM
This spring, I was one of three panelists in a Keizai Society presentation looking at possible future scenarios for the Japanese economy.  

The talk got a lot of attention on the blogosphere, in part due to a Ustream Video of the event posted at the Keizai Society site.  I had been meaning to post the link here too, so here it is slightly belatedly.  Just scroll down to play the video, and below that you can also access PDFs of our slides. 

You'll see that among the three of us, I take the most pessimistic tack, arguing that Japan is going to end up looking a lot like Italy if it doesn't make a radical change.  Not that being like Italy is all that terrible (there are certainly much worse alternatives), but the question is, is that the future that Japan really wants for itself?
