Abenomics has shifted to a new stage where steadfast policies are required to overcome the supply constraints of the Japanese economy, primarily caused by an aging society with a decreasing population. Bringing out corporate actions to enhance earning power is insufficient to improve the productivity of the existing players. Japan needs to produce innovative ventures that will be major impacts on the entire economy and industrial structure. Against this backdrop, this project will conduct basic research to explore new industrial policy by taking theoretical and empirical approaches, based on the observations described above.
