Abenomics is the name given to a massive economic project launched a year ago by Japan's Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe. In the Balance explores whether the project is paying off and asks what are the dangers, as Japan aims to bring back growth to its moribund economy.

Ed Butler is joined by guests Richard Dobbs of the McKinsey Global Institute, Yuuichiro Nakajima of Crimson Phoenix Limited, a UK and Japan-based consultancy, and Dr Kathryn Ibata-Arens, Director of Global Asian Studies at DePaul University in Chicago. And Colm O Regan asks - what's in a name?
