Japan’s Economy: Moving Along its Modest Sustainable Growth Path

Patrick, Hugh T.

Japan’s economy continues to chug along well, with above-potential GDP growth in 2017 that will continue for the coming year or two. In longer-term perspective, the economy is maintaining patterns established several years ago. This is not surprising. Above all, Japan’s economic success is founded on its well-educated, industrious labor force, high savings and investment rates, and good economic institutions. Its only significant natural resources are land and a four-season climate.
