What lessons can China’s policy-makers learn from Japan?

Time: 2 - 3pm
Venue: D202
Speaker: Mr. Julian Jessop

China today faces many of the challenges that Japan had to deal with in the 1980s and early 1990s: high rates of saving and investment, an over-reliance on bank finance, the emergence of asset price bubbles, heavy state intervention, booming exports and growing trade tensions with the West. Admittedly, China is at a much earlier stage of economic development. Nonetheless, there are enough similarities to ask what lessons can be drawn from the Japanese experience.
