About this book

This book examines how Japan should cope with fiscal challenges, as demands on the budget from an ageing society have necessitated the reigning in of public debt and the revamp of the pension and healthcare systems. It combines insights from academic research with the views of policymakers to distil key issues that need to inform public debate.

Reviews

"[T]he book does an excellent job of providing thoughtful analysis of some of the thorniest aspects of Japan's fiscal situation, such as the extent to which the existing debt burden may limit future policy options, the difficulties of achieving a central government surplus given the structure of intergovermental transfers, and the many unknowns plaguing efforts to predict the budgetary consequences of Japan's aging population." - Jennifer H. Dwyer, Hunter College
