Seminar room, Darwin College

Japan's high economic growth was achieved by combining government leadership and private sector interests in order to catch up with and overtake the Western economies. But the economy has been stumbling for the last seven years. The speaker examines what the Japanese model was like during the high growth period, and considers its prospects from financial perspectives.
