Japanese Banking: Crisis and Reform  
Product Ref: 05/271C Company: Nippon Credit Bank

Product Type: Case Industry: Banks & Diversified Financials

Related Product(s): N/A
The Japanese banking industry entered a major crisis in the 1990s, as massive non-performing loans threatened the survival of even the largest banks. This was a far cry from Japan's stellar growth from 1950 and the heady days of spiralling property and stock market prices in the 1980s. This case traces the development of the Japanese economy from the end of the Second World War, the role of international flows of trade, finance and foreign direct investment, and the part played by the Japanese banking sector in those developments. By the year 2000, the government had spent trillions of yen in rescue packages, including the nationalisation of two of the largest banks, and was attempting to institute banking sector reforms in order to resolve the crisis. The case is designed for an MBA level course in International Business. It allows students to explore issues arising from Japan's position in the international political economy, the role of banking in Japanese economic development, and the challenges involved in resolving banking crises.
