Opening Statement Of Representative Hamilton, Member

Representative Hamilton. The Joint Economic Committee will come to order.

Welcome to today's hearing on prospects for Japanese growth in the next decade. The Japanese economy grew at double digit rates in the 1960s. Although Japan's growth rate slowed somewhat in the 1970s and 1980s, it still exceeded the U.S. growth rate by a substantial margin.

As a result, Japan's weight in the world economy grew enormously. This hearing will look beyond the current recession and examine the growth rate that might be expected once the recovery and expansion are established. Some analysts have argued that with its high rates of investment and close ties to the rapidly growing economies of the rest of Asia, Japan will once again enjoy growth in the 4 to 5 percent range over the next decade. Other economists forecast slow growth for Japan because of its aging population and the difficulties in raising productivity for industries at the technological frontier or that have rigid low-productivity institutional arrangements.

Still others point to Japan's past successes in overcoming economic obstacles and predict that Japan will soon be growing as fast as any other advanced industrial country. We have asked our witnesses to provide their own forecasts of Japanese growth in the coming decade and to identify the key factors contributing to faster growth and the barriers causing slower growth over the medium turn.

In addition, we have asked them to consider policy alternatives that might affect the long-term sustainable rate of Japanese growth.
