Odd Markets in Japanese History by J. Mark Ramseyer

Book Description

Employing a rational-choice approach, Professor Ramseyer studies the impact of Japanese law on economic growth in Japan. Toward that end, the author investigates the way law governed various markets and the way that people negotiated contracts within those markets. For much of the period at stake, the Japanese government was an oligarchy rather than a democracy; the judges operated a civil rather than common law regime; the economy grew modestly but erratically; and social customs changed rapidly and radically. As a result, this study applies an economic logic, but to markets in a vastly different world, in a different historical period, and with a different political regime and legal system. Findings reveal that the legal system generally promoted mutually advantageous deals, and that people generally negotiated in ways that shrewdly promoted their private best interests. Whether in the markets for indentured servants, prostitutes, or marriage partners, Odd Markets in Japanese History reports little evidence of either age- or gender- related exploitation.

Fable of the Keiretsu by J. Mark Ramseyer Fable of the Keiretsu, Hardback (June 2006)

For Western economists and journalists, the most distinctive facet of the post-war Japanese business world has been the keiretsu, or the insular business alliances among powerful corporations. This book shows that the very idea of the keiretsu was created and propagated by Marxist scholars in post-war Japan.

Distribution in Japan by J. Mark Ramseyer Distribution in Japan, Hardback (January 2002)

Several years have passed since the "store wars" over barriers to foreign products at Japanese distribution firms. Yet among English-speaking readers, how these firms operate remains a puzzle. In this title, Japanese scholars in their fields attempt to unravel that puzzle.
