The economic rise of Japan is legendary. Since the Meiji Restoration of 1868
followed by the post World War II social pact and the role of the
developmental state in a corporatist setting, Japan harnessed its
traditional institutions and adapted them successfully for modern business
and society. However, the closed nature of Japanese systems, whether among
businesses (the *keiretsu*), society (restricted immigration), or politics
(dominance of a single party), while they worked well in an era of national
development and limited internationalization, became barriers to Japan’s
adjustment to a world that had changed drastically. Professors Toshiya Ozaki
(Rikkyo University), Takehiko Kariya (University of Oxford), and Anthony P.
D’Costa (Asia Research Centre, CBS) offer a multi-faceted discussion of the
institutional challenges faced by Japan today and suggest some policy
options for regaining a more dynamic and competitive Japan.
