Electronic money projects in Japan

Yamori, Nobuyoshi; Nishigaki, Narunto

Most of the discussions and analyses of Japanese banks focus on the lingering effects of the collapse of the bubble economy during the 1990's. There is limited foreign coverage of the forward-looking projects of Japanese banks. This paper attempts to fill this void by providing an overview of the recent development of electronic money in Japan. While these projects are not unusually remarkable, the experiences of Japanese banks during the 1990's will provide them with ample growth opportunities in the next century.
