About this book

The authors examine various aspects of Japanese financial markets. This analysis is interspersed with the relevant institutional/historical background on Japanese financial markets necessary for the non-specialist. Principal chapters include: an institutional overview, a chapter on comparative cost of capital (both internationally and among Japanese firms); causes and implications of the high degree of financial intermediation in Japan and an invaluable analysis of the most recent trends in the Japanese/Asian financial markets.

Reviews

"This is a useful handbook for anyone contemplating investing in Japanese markets." - Foreign Affairs

"...it combines a solid grounding in economic theory with an empirical richness that would require a year's subscription to Euromoney and Institutional Investor to match...I would recommend this book..." - Journal of Asian Studies
