In the 1990s, Japan entered a long-term slump, what is now referred to as the "lost 20 years." Looking back on the time of rapid economic growth and considering the causes of such stagnation, this lecture will assess Abenomics. Drastic financial policies by the Second Abe Cabinet established in December 2012 has created a weak yen and rising stock market prices. Prime Minister Abe is striving to achieve full-fledged economic recovery by implementing quick financial policies and growth strategies.

This lecture will discuss whether Abenomics will be able to become the foundation of a solution to getting the Japanese economy out of the "lost 20 years."
