|Description:||58th Annual Conference of the Japan Society of Political Economy "The Transformation of the Social Economic System and the Challenges of Political Economy: Can Japan Change? "|
|Location:||Osaka, Kansai University, Suita Campus in Osaka, Japan|
|Subject:||We would like to ask about the possibility of change in our social economic system at the plenary session. We are living in Japanese society where an old system has perished. However, a new system has not yet been born. The old systems mentioned here are an export-driven economic growth of Japan, a redistribution policy of tax and spending under the Liberal Democratic Government, and the neo-liberal structural policy which was undertaken by the Koizumi administration. Now, Japan has come to a deadlock over the economic policies, related to industry, welfare, and employment. There is no industrial policy like the Green New Deal in the United States. In order to find a way out of the deadlock, we need to discuss an alternative framework with which we can replace the neo-liberal paradigm beyond Fordism, and Financial Capitalism.
