Shifts in Japanese Corporate Governance
This paper examines the effects of structural changes in financial system on corporate governance and finance in Japan, and discusses the future directions. Major shifts in the Japanese corporate governance are under way. As equity financing replace bank financing as the primary source of capital in Japanese major firms, the power of main banks and the government to direct corporate behavior through funds control are waning. As the economy continues to be sluggish, the effective role of relationship-based governance system is under serious consideration.
