The government of Abe Shinzo, in power in Japan from 2012 to 2020, represents an important turning point in Japanese politics and political economy. Abe became the longest-serving prime minister in Japanese history, reversing a trend of short-lived leaders. His government not only stands out for its longevity, but also for its policies: Abe implemented a variety of significant changes, among the most important being a series of economic reforms to reinvigorate Japan’s economy under the banner of “Abenomics.” This talk will draw on a recently published book co-edited by Takeo Hoshi and 2014 Abe fellow Phillip Lipscy, The Political Economy of the Abe Government and Abenomics Reforms. The authors also consider the implications of these reforms for the post-Abe era that began with the Suga government in September 2020.
