Ed Lincoln – Japan the Finance Center?

Friday, October 28, 2011   19:30 - 21:00

Speaker:
  • Edward J. Lincoln

In the late 1980s there was much talk and hope that Tokyo and Japanese financial institutions were on their way to being global leaders. The Tokyo Stock market, for example, had a market capitalization larger than the New York Stock Market, and listings of foreign firms on the TSE were increasing rapidly. The “Big Bang” financial reforms announced in 1996 were supposed to ensure that Tokyo would be a major international financial center. Today, however, Tokyo is arguably a less important international financial center than in 1990, and few Japanese financial institutions are major players in global markets. This talk will explore what happened (or did not happen) and offer some thoughts on why.
