After a generation of stagnation, the Nikkei has rebounded, the yen has plummeted, and Japan's pernicious deflation seems to be ending. Is Asia's second largest economy finally addressing long-ignored problems? Or is this just competitive devaluation by a different name? Bill Adams gives his assessment of Japan's latest reform plans and their implications for American businesses and investors.

Bill Adams, Senior International Economist for The PNC Financial Services Group, serves as PNC’s spokesman on global economic issues and is responsible for its forecasts for Japan, other major industrial economies outside the United States, and the major emerging markets. Formerly resident economist at The Conference Board China Center, Adams has published extensively on China’s economic and financial reforms. He is a center associate and advisory board member of the University of Pittsburgh Asia Studies Center, and a member of the economics advisory council of the Duquesne University Palumbo Donahue School of Business. Bill is co-author of In Line Behind a Billion People: How Scarcity Will Shape China's Rise in the Coming Decade, published in September 2013 by the Financial Times Press.
