Designing the Market: Institutions and Reform in Japan and Other Advanced Industrial Countries

This book project will examine market institutions and market reform in Japan and other advanced industrial countries. It builds upon two previous book projects ("Freer Markets, More Rules" and "Japan Remodeled") yet it seeks to present a broader and bolder argument designed to incite scholars to reconsider how they study political economy and to prompt government officials to re-evaluate the way they assess policy options. The book will focus on two primary country cases, the United States and Japan, with additional comparisons with Western Europe. It will develop two broad issue cases (financial markets and competition regimes), with supplementary cases on intellectual property rights and creating new markets. It will address both government regulation and the private governance of markets, and the interaction between the two.
