Ongoing Financial Deregulation, Structural Change, and Performance, 1990–2010
This chapter examines the evolution of Japan's financial sector. It describes a number of structural changes including a major consolidation of the banking industry, partial reform of the government role in the financial sector, and the rise in foreign ownership of corporate equity. The chapter begins by providing a brief background of the changes before 1990, particularly about the major domestic financial crisis caused by the late 1980s bubble. Then, it considers the macroeconomic context during the 1990–2010 period with an analysis of the various components of the financial system. Most of the data in this chapter covers the 2010 fiscal year up to March 31, 2011.
