CJEB presents a luncheon "zadankai" discussion with:

Edward Lincoln
Professorial Lecturer, George Washington University
Visiting Professor, Department of Economics, Columbia University

Moderated by

Hugh Patrick
R.D. Calkins Professor of International Business Emeritus; Director, Center on Japanese Economy and Business, Columbia Business School

Japan has faced a series of serious challenges over the past two decades:  collapsing asset prices, a serious banking crisis, slow economic growth, deflation, and exploding levels of government debt.  Now the population is falling and rapidly aging, creating a new set of economic problems.  Should we worry that Japan will face a crisis like Greece?  Or will Japanese society successfully confront these challenges?

Lunch will be served.
