Chapter

Abstract

In this chapter, we cover three periods that follow Period I (1991–1997): Period II (1998–2002: financial crisis and its impacts), Period III (2003–2007: long recovery), and Period IV (2008–2012: GFC and after). The focus is on the financial crisis that began in late 1997 and its impacts on the Japanese economy. The subsequent two periods will be examined more briefly.
