Goldman's Matsui Says Womenomics Key to Abe Plan

Jan. 22 (Bloomberg) -- Kathy Matsui, chief Japan strategist and co-head of economics, commodities and strategy (ECS) research in Asia for Goldman Sachs Group Inc., talks about her career and interest in gender issues that is at the core of her research into "Womenomics." She published the first womenomics report in August 1999, arguing that equalizing roles in the workforce was a better solution to Japan’s shrinking labor pool than loosening immigration laws or raising the birth rate. Matsui spoke with Bloomberg's Yoshiaki Nohara in Tokyo on Dec. 18. (Source: Bloomberg)

G-20 Signal Globalization Anxiety
16:30 - Finance chiefs from the world’s biggest economies signaled escalating concern about a wave of anti-globalization sentiment that threatens core principles long embraced by the group. Meeting in China one month after a shock decision by U.K voters to exit the European Union, finance ministers and central bankers from the Group of 20 put a stepped-up emphasis on fiscal and structural policies to boost growth, and renewed a pledge to promote inclusiveness. Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew, whose own country has seen millions of people embrace the protectionist calls of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, said Brexit had escalated the importance of inclusive economic expansion. Coutts & Co Chief Investment Officer Alan Higgins discusses with Bloomberg's Anna Edwards and Manus Cranny on "Countdown."
