The Abe cabinet approved a second round of stimulus on Wednesday, 27 May that equals last month’s historically large JPY 117.1tn (USD 1tn) price tag.The largest portion of the stimulus package is intended to provide interest-free financing for businesses and its ultimate economic impact is difficult to anticipate.It is therefore unlikely that the second stimulus package will shift public opinion on Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s leadership – and the use of deficit spending could set the stage for major political battles after he leaves office.

I want to thank everybody who has tweeted photos after receiving their books. Of course, I haven't been able to do in-person events, but, if there's interest, I've been looking into book plates that I could sign and mail.

Can't wait to read both @observingjapan & @nktpnd

Shinzo Abe’s political comeback in 2012 ushered in an astonishing period of stability and prosperity. Abe’s successor inherits a country whose economic and geopolitical future is far less secure, @observingjapan argues.

Escucharon hablar de "The Great Green Wall". Aca Emi Boren te lo cuenta. Y no es sarasa.

As CCS, Suga was not deeply involved in Abe decision to focus on return of just 2 islands from Russia. Instead, Imai & other METIs took lead. With Imai & Hasegawa leaving former roles, MOFA expected to regain prominence. MOFA never keen on Abe's RU policy. https://www.hokkaido-np.co.jp/article/462844

Shinzo Abe deserves credit for his accomplishments, but the stability of his nearly eight-year term also comes down to luck, @observingjapan argues. His successor faces a more daunting agenda, from the economy to China to negotiating with Trump.

The G20 called on private creditors to participate in the DSSI debt suspension on "comparable terms". #Zambia is the first African country requesting private participation. Trendsetter?
