Shinzo Abe Will Be Remembered for His Grand “Abenomics” Experiment, a Professor Says

Japan’s former prime minister Shinzo Abe “did so much,” which is why he was the country’s longest-serving leader, a professor from the University of Shizuoka said Tuesday.

Abe came to office at a time when Japan was “suffering a strong Yen” and “exporters were struggling,” said Seijiro Takeshita, professor of management and information. He set about rebooting the economy, by launching a grand experiment popularly known as “Abenomics,” Takeshita said.

“Certainly, he has made very positive progress, including trying to get more women into the workplace,” Takeshita said.

“He did a lot, or he wouldn’t have been our longest-serving prime minister.”

Allies of Abe praised the policy for boosting consumer and investor confidence and getting Japan’s economy back on track. But after getting off to a good start, it slowed down, so in 2015 Abe fired “three new arrows” to boost the country’s GDP. Any hope that they would eventually reach their goal was shattered when Covid-19 hit Japan in 2020 and put the country into a recession.

Shinzo Abe Will Be Remembered for His “Breadth of Vision,” Author Says

The most striking thing about former Japanese leader Shinzo Abe was the “breadth of his vision,” the author of a book about the country’s longest-serving prime minister said Tuesday.

Tobias Harris, the author of “The Iconoclast: Shinzo Abe and the New Japan,” said that Abe was a unique leader because he was “willing and determined to think… beyond the current generation.”

Abe was a well-known person around the world. He built strong ties with the United States, which was Japan’s most important ally after World War II. He also tried to get to know former US President Donald Trump on a personal level by going to New York to meet him while former President Barack Obama was still in office.

“The US and Japan have been allies for a very long time but what you saw under Abe was almost taking the bilateral relationship to another level,” said Harris, a senior fellow for Asia at the Center for American Progress.

“It was agreed that Japan had no choice but to find a way to make sure the US cared about its security and the security and prosperity of the region as a whole.”
