First published in 1997, this volume examines the implications of Japanese corporate practices post-World War II for the experiences of capital markets in modern developing economies based on theoretical and empirical analyses of Bangladeshi and Japanese markets. It aims to explore sensible approach, rather than panacea solutions, to issues of making a conducive environment for rapid growth. Japanese capital markets have evolved continuously since the war and M. Farid Ahmed suggests that traditional practices have been adapted to a much more complex reality. Ahmed executes this study through consideration of issues including the private sector, government policy, corporate financing, stock prices and capital market theory.
