ATTENDED global think-tank Asian Economic Panel (Columbia University) meeting recently in Tokyo hosted by Keio University.

Research papers centred on Asia covering a range of topics were considered from income distribution and wealth polarisation, to business cycles and myths about China's high-tech exports, to multinationals' energy efficiency in manufacturing, to fresh approaches in financing disaster reconstruction projects. Its timing accorded an opportunity to be updated on what's happening to Japan, just prior to the October Intermeet'12 gathering of International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank stakeholders in Tokyo. After all, Keio University advises MOF and BOJ on economic affairs; this special access provides its professors with unique insights which enrich perspectives on Japan during meeting interactions.
