“People are intrigued because they believe he can be so much more than past leaders. But so much of what Abe has said really reflects his desire for short-term economic gains,” says Jeffrey Hornung, an associate professor at the Asia Pacific Center for Security Studies, who focuses on Japanese policy. “What he is discussing hasn’t concretely pointed to increased worker productivity, nor doing anything to build the economy for the long term. Abe’s given the economy a shot and that shot will wear off.”
