Show Summary Details


This chapter sums up the key findings of this study about some of the myths about the Japanese economy. It confirms that the fables about Japanese bureaucrats, keiretsu, main banks, and systematically misgoverned firms are just fables with no factual basis or data to support them. This chapter also provides an analysis of the possible causes of the economic crisis in Japan in the 1990s.

Keywords: Japanese economy; bureaucrats; keiretsu; main banks; misgoverned firms; economic crisis; Japan
