  • Kenji AramakiEmail author


This book examines the experience of the Japanese economy over last 30 years, from the 1980s, a time filled with a series of difficulties not observed in advanced countries in recent years, including the formation and collapse of a huge bubble, a two-decade-long economic stagnation, and chronic deflation, with an aim of identifying the mechanisms and drawing lessons for future economic policy management.
