Luncheon Lecture: The Japanese Economy after the Earthquake and Tsunami

The Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami caused extensive damage to the Japanese economy, not only through direct damage to production facilities in northeastern Japan, but also by disrupting the supply chain of industrial components and parts used by foreign companies. But now, economic activity in Japan is rebounding more rapidly than was expected, and economic growth is predicted in the latter half of the year.

On Tuesday, August 23, 2011 from 11:30-1:30 PM Dr. Motoshige Itoh, Professor at the Graduate School of Economics and Faculty of Economics at the University of Tokyo will examine the impact of the disaster on the Japanese economy, as well as the prospects for short-term recovery and the outlook for the future.
