Reflation Isn’t the Answer!

How Abenomics Could Destroy Japan’s Economy

Japan’s reflation policy was born in the midst of the December 2012 parliament election when LDP President Shinzo Abe, as part of his campaign platform, vowed to revitalize the economy. His reflation rhetoric is citied as being the lynchpin in Abe’s landslide victory.

While breaking free from a sluggish economy may sound great in theory, reflation is one of the worst possible policies you could come up. Why? Because it causes the value of government bonds to fall drastically. When the bonds drop you run the risk of entering a major financial crisis as banks nationwide that hold major shares of these bonds begin to fail. And as seen in many other financial crises, when banks fail the national economy itself runs the risk of crashing.

But why?

It’s not that reflation could leave us with cripplingly unstoppable inflation. What makes it so dangerous, is the fact that the government is artificially trying to create inflation in an economic environment in which it simply isn’t possible. By trying to make inflation happen under impossible conditions you only end up warping the economy itself, putting Japan at risk of complete and total economic meltdown.

In this book, up-and-coming economic analyst and Keio University Business School associate professor Seki Obata explains everything you need to know about Prime Minister Abe’s reflation policy; from exactly what the LDP has planned, to how it will effect Japan as well as the erroneous line of reasoning reflation was coined under. Thoroughly explaining the dangers of reflation from a variety of angles, Obata brings to readers a logical and startling new case study on 21st century economics in Japan.
