Maekawa Report

Maekawa Report

A report to the Japanese government recommending promotion of domestic demand and a lower emphasis on exports. It recommended deregulation of legal barricades between banking and securities sectors to accomplish this goal. The report was published in 1986, when Japan's balance of payments surplus was considered to be unsustainably high.
