Abstract:

The primary goals of this study are to describe and analyze the development, structure, and regulation of consumer credit in Japan, and to identify significant laws, regulations, or ministerial guidance that may restrict consumer credit markets and constrain the behavior of Japanese households. Interest in consumer credit stems from the presumed links between credit and household saving, and between saving and the current account trade balance. A secondary goal of the study therefore, is to assess the links between household credit and saving. rwj
