Japan trap. Where is the exit?
download russian text
Japan’s trap is scrutinized as a liquidity trap, which market economy is not able to correct without government interference. This is such condition of economy in which conventional instruments of economic recovery – interest rate cut and government spending increase – don’t have function. At the same time in the judgment of the author long-run recession of Japanese economy is not unique to the Japanese phenomena. It has universal features. Some of them are inherent for Russia. But importance of Japan’s trap both as conceptual and practical matter is realized by only few economists. In this connection possible ways out of trap are analyzed. The proposition of American economist Krugman for way of this situation was especially outlined.
