This chapter discusses the nature, degree, and implications of heavy government regulation on the performance of the banking sector, particularly of main banks. The main reason for government regulation in the financial system is to maintain stability. Japanese authorities sought to achieve this by protecting banks. This method has been successful with regards to the reconstruction of the financial system and promotion of high growth.
