The Heisei Era: Radical Change or Prolonged Sclerosis?

Tuesday, March 5, 2019   19:30 - 21:00

  • Nobuko Kobayashi (Tokyo-based Partner at EY-Parthenon)

The end of the Heisei Era marks three decades since the Japanese bubble burst. Some argue that the past thirty years have seen remarkable change in many areas, such as gender roles, corporate governance, and innovation. Others believe that there is much more continuity in a society still run along sclerotic lines by old men. What has really changed and what has not? What challenges lies ahead? How would Japan navigate? Nobuko Kobayashi will help us better understand these issues.
