The Question of Access to the Japanese Market

Author

Listed:
  • Drysdale, Peter

Abstract

It is now widely accepted that Japan has relatively low official barriers to merchandise, particularly manufactured goods, trade relative to other industrial countries. Yet, Japan's current account and trade surpluses have encouraged the view that there must be special 'hidden barriers' to accessing the Japanese market and a literature has developed on the premise that Japanese business organizations (keiretsu) limit foreign penetration of markets of manufactured goods. This paper surveys the main elements of this literature and questions some of the assumptions upon which recent American policy in this area seems to have been developed. Copyright 1995 by The Economic Society of Australia.
