Structural Impediments to Growth in Japan

Structural Impediments to Growth in Japan, edited by Magnus Blomström, Jennifer Corbett, Fumio Hayashi, and Anil K Kashyap, is available this fall from the University of Chicago Press for $70.00.

As the much-lauded "miracle" of Japan's stunning economic growth has given way to economic stagnation, analysts have focused their attention on the underlying systems that present obstacles to continued success. In a first book-length academic treatment of this important issue, a team of notable editors and contributors gathers to present nine papers offering a comprehensive assessment of those economic difficulties. The topics covered range from financial problems to corporate issues to issues in government policy. The result is an invaluable collection of information on the key challenges facing continued economic growth.

All of the volume's editors are members of the NBER's Japan Project. Blomström is a professor at the European Institute of Japanese Studies and the Stockholm School of Economics. Corbett is a reader at the University of Oxford and professor at Australian National University. Hayashi is a professor in the faculty of economics at the University of Tokyo. Kashyap is the Edward Eagle Brown Professor of Economics and Finance in the Graduate School of Business at the University of Chicago.
