Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Papers (and following comments) presented at a National Bureau of Economic Research conference in Cambridge, Mass., October 1989. Three of the papers represent a continuation of the debate over the openness of the Japanese economy, three focus on the question of market structure in Japan and how it may affect international trade, two focus on Japanese financial markets (institutional structure and prices), and the final two papers treat the role of government in Japan's trade relations.
