Reconcilable Differences? United States-Japan Economic Conflict
AbstractUnited States-Japan economic conflict has four major dimensions: the large global trade imbalances of the two countries, structural differences between them, a large number of sectoral disputes, and their joint responsibility for global prosperity and stability. Two leading experts on United States-Japan economic relations examine the macroeconomic and microeconomic causes of these frictions and assess possible policy responses, including several variants of "managed trade." They stress the differences between the American and Japanese models of capitalism and provide detailed examinations of current conflicts over key industries including automobiles, computers and supercomputers, construction contracting, financial services, and semiconductors.The authors conclude that Japan and the United States are on a collision course. They propose a comprehensive new strategy to resolve the conflict that calls for major changes in macroeconomic, structural, trade, and international economic policies in both countries.
