This case uses Japan's low-growth episodes since the 1990s to analyze economic policy in an environment featuring excess capacity, near-zero interest rates, and low inflation. The case discusses the rationale behind "Abenomics" - Prime Minister Shinz? Abe's three-pronged approach to stimulating Japan's economy. Haruhiko Kuroda, the governor of the Bank of Japan, is tasked with making the case to stick with Abenomics after five years under the policy. Were the three prongs of policy changes on course or was one or more of the prongs failing to reenergize growth? The answer would be especially topical during the upcoming general election, which many viewed as a referendum on Abe's economic policies.
