Economic Reform in Japan

Economic Reform in Japan

Can the Japanese Change?

Edited by Craig Freedman

While many Western economists forcefully urge the Japanese to become more like the US, there are other academics who have registered strong reservations to such a simplistic solution. In this volume, noted scholars take opposing positions on key issues including financial reform, corporate change and international trade. The editor contributes a thought-provoking introduction which also presents an overview of the topic. The papers gathered here present an opportunity for readers to consider the underlying conflicts in Japan’s economy and society that makes choosing a new direction such a difficult proposition.
