Reminder: Panel on the Japanese Economy with John Greenwood and Richard Katz
EconVue Subscriber Event OCT 26th 11AM CDT
You are invited to a virtual panel discussion on the Japanese economy, from its outlier monetary policy to Prime Minister Fumio Kishida’s “New Capitalism” with economists John Greenwood and Richard Katz, moderated by Lyric Hughes Hale.
Japan’s inflation rate of 3% is the envy of other central banks. Unlike other countries, Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda has no plans to raise interest rates or tighten monetary policy. With inflation rising worldwide, Japan has once again proven to be the exception to the rule. Why has Japan escaped - so far- and are there any lessons we can learn? What changes can we expect post-Covid? Could we see a revival in innovation and productivity?
John Greenwood is former chief economist at Invesco. Based in London, he now heads his own consultancy, International Monetary Monitor. He is also known as the father of the Hong Kong Peg, and is one of the most respected voices in global macro economics. He believes in the causal relationship between money supply and inflation.
Richard Katz is New York correspondent for Weekly Toyo Keizai, a leading Japanese business weekly, and is the author of Japan Economy Watch. A long-time observer and commentator on the Japanese economy. Based upon his in-country research, he believes that Japan could see a rebirth of innovation—but there is no guarantee that the country won’t miss yet another opportunity.
Lyric Hughes Hale is editor-in-chief of EconVue. She will moderate the panel as well as Q&A from the audience.
Date: Wednesday, October 26th Time: 11 am - 12 pm (CDT)
