Reimagining Japan: The Quest for a Future that Works

Thursday, September 8, 2011 — 8 PM

Reimagining Japan, VIZ Media LLC, July 12, 2011.

Half a year has passed since the March 11 earthquake in Japan. To mark the international release of an ambitious new book, a panel of eminent authors has been asked to re-imagine Japan’s present and future. In a discussion format, renowned Japan experts, including Gerald Curtis of Columbia University and David Sanger of The New York Times, will address questions such as: How will Japanese politics respond to the March 11 earthquake and its aftermath? How can Japan compete with a rising China? Rediscover its entrepreneurial verve? In Reimagining Japan, McKinsey & Company asked more than 80 global leaders and experts to consider these questions.

Books will be on sale at a reception following the discussion. Copies of the book are also available at Kinokuniya in New York City.
