Japan’s economy is at a crossroads. After decades of grappling with deflation, the tide is shifting. Prices are rising. Equities are at record highs. Wage growth is improving. Even the Bank of Japan is raising interest rates.

But not all is well. Households are financially stretched, consumer spending is treading water, and investment is lagging expectations. Political gridlock has left the country without a clear vision to guide future policy.

Is the economy finally turning a corner, or will this be another false dawn?

Join Moody’s Analytics Senior Economist Stefan Angrick as he discusses the outlook for Japan’s economy with Toshihiro Nagahama, Executive Chief Economist at Dai-Ichi Life Research Institute and one of Japan’s most respected economists.
