Capital Markets and Corporate Governance

This chapter examines the evidence on corporate financing patterns from 1970 to 1989 to address two issues. It first presents the conventional view of Japanese companies' financial structures. Next, the chapter utilises the National Income Accounts and Flow of Funds to provide a description of the pattern of company finance from within the stated period. The chapter then considers the implications of the statistical evidence for the general view that Japan is a bank-based financial system and looks at other firms' relations with banks. Finally, it considers aspects of the main bank relationship and examines other features of corporate control, particularly the keiretsu relationship as well as interlocking shareholding.

Keywords:   corporate financing patterns, Japanese companies, National Income Accounts, Flow of Funds, bank relationship, interlocking shareholding
