Can Abenomics Save Japan's Economy?

In this special edition of World Business Report, we examine the economic fortunes of the Rising Sun of Japan, and the Chinese Dragon.

Japan's Prime Minister has unveiled a new raft of measures aimed at reviving his country's moribund economy. We visit a Japanese seaside resort to take the economic temperature, and discuss the wisdom of Abenomics with BBC economics correspondent Andrew Walker.

Plus we're in the eastern Chinese city of Hangzhou. As property prices fall sharply, is China repeating the mistakes Japan made a quarter of a century ago?
