Japan's Economic Prosperity and Stability: A Role Model?

Brexit and the election of Donald Trump uncovered deep social divisions throughout Europe and the USA. Populist nationalism is trumping tolerance for globalization and immigration. Meanwhile, Japan seems to remain economically stable. Can Japan fill the vacuum left by the breakdown of the Washington Consensus, and help pull the world out of the current uncertainty? How would the US and Europe respond? What can businesses, organizations, and individuals do to imagine a more stable future? In other words, what can we create to evolve beyond this volatility? This session lays out the theme of today’s conference and how to think about possible next steps.
