The future of the world economy

The world is not flat

APP Institutional member, Columbia University's Business School Center on Japanese Economy and Business will host its 25th Anniversary Conference, JAPAN, U.S., CHINA AND THE FUTURE OF THE WORLD ECONOMY, in Tokyo on March 16 from 1:00-6:30pm.

While advanced economies continue to recover from the deepest global recession in the postwar era, and emerging economies - notably China - resume rapid growth, Japan continues to play an important role in the shift of both regional and global dynamics. How can Japan best provide lessons for countries looking to avoid their own lost decades? What lessons are to be learned for Japan from its global allies and competitors? This future-oriented conference, held on the 25th Anniversary of Columbia Business School's Center on Japanese Economy and Business, will feature distinguished academics, economists, and policy makers from Japan, the U.S., and China. Speakers will examine key issues regarding Japan's international economic relations and financial regulatory structures as well as trends in Japan's global businesses, including branding strategies for the highly successful e-commerce company, Rakuten. Columbia University Professor Joseph E. Stiglitz, a Nobel Laureate in Economics, will deliver the keynote address, focusing on the future of the post-crisis global economy.

Stiglitz, University Professor, Columbia University; Heizo Takenaka, Professor, Faculty of Policy Management; Director, Global Security Research Institute, Keio University; Hugh Patrick, Director, Center on Japanese Economy and Business, Columbia Business School; JRobert Hodrick, Nomura Professor of International Finance, Columbia Business School; Kazuo Ueda, Faculty of Economics, University of Tokyo; Yiping Huang, Professor of Economics, Peking University; David E.
