Japan - at the crossroads
The 8-minute video, made by LEPAC – www.lepac.org – is explaining the challenges facing Japan as its economy recovers.
These challenges are structural and connected to energy choices, and the demographical landscape of the country. The 2014 fertility rate in Japan was 1. 4 - one of the lowest in the world, and has economic consequences : a shrinking working class and a growing ageing class – more than 26% of the Japanese population is over 65 years old, and this percentage will be 30% in 2030. The recovery of Japanese economy goes with a more dynamic demography.
