・ For Abe-nomics to be truly successful, it must tackle Japan’s demographic crisis. Japan cannot afford to waste its most underutilized asset, its women.
・ In addition to “pull” factors like childcare/elderly care, “push” factors also need to be addressed to raise female labor participation.
・ If Japan could close its gender employment gap, we estimate that Japan’s workforce could expand by 8.2 mn and the level of Japan’s GDP could increase by as much as 15%.
・ Against a backdrop of anemic consumption, female spending trends have been relatively resilient and Womenomics will likely remain a secular investment theme.
