    During this webinar, Mr. Masamichi Adachi, Japan Chief Economist at UBS, will present his views on Japan’s economy, which is now facing great opportunity to see secular change in three fronts: inflation dynamics, continued recovery amid incoming US recession, and BoJ’s policy. Japanese economy may be able to escape from so called “deflation equilibrium” with positive feedback between wage growth and inflation, which implies the recovery in price mechanism in the economy. Of course, this benign outlook is not certain with elevated risks in global economy, especially in the US with sticky inflation and banking turmoil. But the possibility that Japan is back to normal economy with decent 2-3% nominal GDP growth from less than 1% in last three decades attracts high interest to Japan from many international investors. We thus believe that this is a good timing to discuss the economic and policy outlook with the renowned economist.Agenda1.
