Summary
The March 11, 2011, earthquake and tsunami that occurred in Japan followed by a nuclear crisis and shortage of electricity is having a large negative economic impact on the country but a lesser effect on world markets. Japan has lost considerable physical and human capital. Analysts expect that over the next quarter or so, Japan's economy will contract, but may expand because of rebuilding activity later in the year and into 2012. Congressional interest centers on humanitarian concerns, the impact on U.S. citizens and American companies in Japan, and the effects of the disaster on the exchange of both goods and services, and on Japanese and U.S. financial markets, interest rates, and the yen-dollar exchange rate. In recent decades, Japan's growth rate has lagged behind that of the world, so it has not been a major contributor to global economic growth. The net impact of the disaster on global GDP, therefore, is expected to be relatively small (about 0.5 percentage points) with about half of that effect confined to Japan, itself. As for U.S.-Japan economic relations, earthquake-related events in Japan are still unfolding; therefore, any economic impact assessments are at best preliminary. Japan plays a major role in global supply chains both as a supplier of parts and as a producer of final products. In this age of just-in-time production processes, even a small disruption in the provision of a single component can wreak havoc on an entire product line
