Foreign Direct Investment in Japan

by Masaru Yoshitomi

Editorial Reviews

Investment scholars and practitioners query why direct participation of foreign firms in the Japanese economy is lower than in any other industrialized country, and what if any policy steps the Japanese government could take to increase it. They consider the lingering impact of the ban on the practice until the middle 1970s, the high costs of doing business in Japan such as very expensive land and labor, and traditional business practices including long-term transaction relationships with suppliers and customers and the long-term employment system. The seven studies were presented at an October 1994 conference in Philadelphia. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
