Mr. Kuwajima will discuss the economic policies of new Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's proposed economic policies, popularly known as "Abenomics." Abenomics comprises three pillars: more assertive monetary policies to end deflation and promote economic activity, short-term fiscal stimulus, and structural reforms to encourage more innovation. Mr. Kuwajima will review the premises and latest developments in this regard, and will present his own analysis of Abe’s economic policies. Mr. Kuwajima is the Chief Financial Officer of Aoyama Shachu, a Japanese non-profit organization dedicated to reinvigorating the Japanese economy and society by promoting innovation. He previously worked for Mitsui Corporation and for the Japanese consulting firm Dream Incubator. He earned a BA in Economics from Tokyo University, an MBA from the Harvard Business School, and an MPP from the Harvard Kennedy School.
