Abstract
The Tohoku Pacific earthquake which struck Japan on 11th March was the most serious to hit Japan since the Kobe earthquake of 1995, and was followed by a highly destructive tsunami. As well as having significant short-term economic and financial impacts, these disasters could also leave a longer-term footprint on the Japanese and global economies.
