THOUGHTS ON THE ASSASSINATION OF SHINZO ABE

(Jul 22) A brief from Peter Tasker considering the implications of the horrific assassination of former Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe.
  • The death of ex-Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will be deeply felt in Japan.
  • He turned the Government Investment Pension Fund from a sleepy backwater that invested in Japanese Government Bonds to a highly professional operation.
  • It is possible that without Abe’s presence, the bureaucrats will seek to restore their power.
