Litigiousness in Japan: Land of the rising law suit?

Leon Wolff

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

For over two decades, Japanese politicians and bureaucrats have struggled to resurrect a lifeless economy. With the 1990s marred by crippling financial crisis, a spate of corporate insolvencies, ongoing scandals in Japan's premier economic ministries, rising unemployment and low to negative growth, policymakers responded with successive legislative reforms aimed at restructuring public administration and private governance of the economy. The Big Bang financial reforms, large-scale reform of Japanese corporate law, and a restructured bureaucracy are representative examples of this reform effort.
