Jump to navigationJump to search

"The nation demands a movement which has written upon its banner the internal and external national freedom that it will act as if it were the spiritual, social and political conscience of the nation."

National Conservatism (NatCon) is a statist, culturally right-wing, civically and economically variable, but usually authoritarian right, and nationalist ideology who intends to preserve traditions and national and cultural identity as well as emphasising the protection of national interests, mixing elements of conservatism with nationalism. He carries a strict sense of law and order, is usually nationalistic, in favor of regulating immigration and values both the nation and the traditional family.

In Europe NatCon holds eurosceptic ideas.

Mr Abe's signature economic programme was the set of policies that he introduced from 2012.

His plan was to jumpstart Japan's economy out of two decades of stagnation using the so-called three "arrows" of Abenomics:

Monetary policy: Japan's hyper-easy monetary policy in the form of negative short term interest rates was put in place to make it cheaper for consumers and companies to borrow money and spend.

Fiscal stimulus: Pumping money into the economy, which means the government spending more money on things like infrastructure, or giving financial incentives to companies like tax breaks.

Structural reforms: Corporate reform, adding more women into the workforce, labour liberalisation, and allowing more migrants into the workforce to help ease labour pressures and add to economic growth.

Did Abenomics work?

As an exercise in political branding, Economists considered Abenomics a success, though it fell short of Mr Abe's own key economic target.

When his government took office it was faced with the task of revitalising Japan's once dynamic economy, which was still in the shadow of the major slowdown during the so-called "lost decade" from around 1991 to 2001.

Abenomics did help drive growth, though not at the pace that the country had seen during its post-war boom. Even now, the size of the economy remains lower than the 600 trillion yen (£3.7tn; $4.4tn) goal set by Mr Abe's administration for 2020.

But as he left office many economists credited Mr Abe for putting the country in a more robust position to withstand economic shocks like the pandemic than when he came to office almost eight years earlier.

Shinzo Abe's economic legacy

Mr Abe's economic approach was called into question when Japan slipped back into recession in early 2020.

He also faced criticism over how he dealt with Covid in the country. He mounted campaigns to encourage domestic tourism which opponents said contributed to a resurgence in infections.

Critics also say Abenomics failed deliver on pledges such as giving women in the workforce more of a voice, tackling nepotism and changing unhealthy work cultures.

However, on Friday, Bank of Japan governor Haruhiko Kuroda said Mr Abe had done much towards "pulling Japan out of prolonged deflation" and "achieving sustained economic growth".

He added he wanted to "express sincere respect for Abe's strong leadership", and "contribution to Japan's economic development".

Personality and Behavior

NatCon usually looks down upon moderate nationalists as he thinks they're all fake and that he is the only "true nationalist".

It's important to not confuse NatCon and AuthCon. Despite both ideologies holding the same stances on social and cultural issues, NatCon is concerned about the nation, while AuthCon is more about state power, with the latter sometimes being anti-nationalist (see:Yanukovych, Kadyrov, etc.).

He usually hangs out with National Liberalism and Conservative Liberalism, with the former sometimes getting into disputes due to being less culturally consistent. His other best friends are Paternalistic Conservatism and National Libertarianism. He treats Alt-Lite as his younger apprentice.

NatCon is an avid fan of Poland, and Hungary
