Abstract

We do not know when the world returns to “normal” or how a “new normal” will look like, but we know for sure that a “new normal” will be rather different from what we used to believe as normality.  In many industries, corporations will be forced to develop new ways to conduct businesses to adjust to the new environment. During the crisis, the Japanese government supported many corporations by providing zero-interest unsecured loans without personal guarantees through government financial institutions and private sector banks.  Although loans can be helpful in the short run, they may actually harm the business restructuring that is necessary to thrive in the new environment.  Even with zero interest rate, loans can be too much of burdens for the corporations that need to venture into profitable areas in a “new normal”.  What can the government do to avoid such problem of excessive debt and to encourage necessary business restructuring?  The round table features experts from academia, business, and policy making to discuss the issues.
