Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"[T]he book does an excellent job of providing thoughtful analysis of some of the thorniest aspects of Japan's fiscal situation, such as the extent to which the existing debt burden may limit future policy options, the difficulties of achieving a central government surplus given the structure of intergovermental transfers, and the many unknowns plaguing efforts to predict the budgetary consequences of Japan's aging population." —Jennifer H. Dwyer, Hunter College
