Inflation, Interest Rates, and The Future Of The Japan Magic Money Tree

June 6 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm JST


The world is in constant flux and does not seem to be limited to one particular region or nation.  In the global arena, actions that affect one nation can – and often – have major impacts on others.  With a three-decade high inflation and a seemingly unyielding grip on its monetary policy, what changes or developments can be expected in Japan?  Furthermore, how is the BoJ’s control of interest rates affecting the future of business, labour, and inflation?

In June, we will welcome Dr. Rodrigo González, Tokyo Director of The Economist newspaper’s EICN division in Japan. Mr. González, who holds a Ph.D. in economics from Keio University, has closely studied the evolution of Japan’s economic landscape and regularly moderates plenary events for executive members in EICN’s corporate network. Rodrigo will lead us in a discussion about:

– Japan’s current economic directions and trajectory
– How interest rates may affect business expansion and investment

– How companies and consumers are dealing with high inflation

Join us for this great interaction on the economy where you will certainly leave with insights from other business leaders, as well as our guest speaker.

More on Rodrigo González
Dr. González works closely with regional business leaders to assist them in organisational and technological adaptability to foster business competitiveness, to quickly identify opportunities and risks from changes in market trends or public policy, and to broaden their business network and enhance their connections to their c-suite peers.

He has vast experience in statistical analysis, strategy consulting and market research in many different industries inside and outside Japan. He is a published author in academic journals and has presented his work at numerous conferences on economics and public policy throughout the world.
