The Cultures of Markets

Janelle Knox-Hayes

Oxford University Press

Chapter 6 examines late market adaptations in China and Japan. Both countries are Asian political economies and although they have similar sociopolitical and cultural heritage, with the legacy of tethered market and state-based institutions, they have divergent approaches to capitalism and market-based governance. In the Chinese case, markets are seen to represent a path toward political liberalism and ecological modernization. In the Japanese case, markets are shunned in favor of a more material approach that smoothly facilitates the ambitions of government and industry to build and transfer technology. In both cases, environmental crises, both acute (Japan) and persistent (China), have shaped policy in important ways.

Keywords:   Japan, China, crisis, environmental context, industry, Amakudari, materiality, Fukushima, ecological modernization, hierarchy
