ABSTRACT
The article discusses the economic state of Japan under the leadership of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Early reports on the premiership of Abe have him either furthering the liberalization thrust of former Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi or restoring the insular old guard of the Liberal Democratic Party, or both. Likewise, Japan's economic position is subject to interpretation. The Nikkei and Topix indexes of share prices seem headed back to their springtime highs, even as the yen sags.
