Takeo Hoshi, Chair of the Board, Tokyo Foundation

Language: The speech and Q & A will be in English.

"Economic Outlook 2018"

Japan's ratio of job openings to applicants has risen to its highest in decades, the stock market has joined most other global benchmarks in testing new highs, tourists and their wallets are flocking into the country in record numbers, land prices are rising, and businesses are reporting robust profits.

So is Japan's deflation demon dead? Slayed by Abenomics and the elixir of policies cooked up by the Bank of Japan and chief wizard Haruhiko Kuroda?

Whatever the reasoning, economies don't stand still and the question is what direction will Japan's move in 2018. Will workers finally get the pay increases Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has been calling for? Will Japan Inc. seriously respond to Abe's pleas? Does the end of the deflation demon really lie in the pockets of the salaryman not the BOJ?      

These are some of the topics economist and authorTakeo Hoshi will discuss in a not-to-be missed presentation at the FCCJ.
