Abenomics Gets a Boost

    Demographics will put a low ceiling on Japan’s growth. Fact.

    A couple key points: “Abenomics” is mostly a Keynesian approach, with the biggest of the three arrows being fiscal stimulus. So of course the GDP growth is initially high – but will it be sustained, as the article asks. Abe is the head of the Liberal Democratic Party, so this is pretty much a lefty experiment. I hope the rest of the world sees this as instructive, no matter the result.

      The LDP in Japan is quite conservative, as is Mr. Abe.

        Absolutely right. Which makes the move toward Keynesian stimulus very notable, IMHO. Sorry I wasn’t clear in my post, which I now read as implying the lefty approach was due to his party, vs in spite of it.
