Suzuki (political science, Ohio University) explores questions surrounding the increasing politicization of Japan's budgetary policy, finding answers in the interplay of domestic and international politics from the early 1970s through the 1990s. He points out that modern state leaders must continually negotiate with their foreign counterparts to foster freer international markets while mitigating the social costs they entail. He tells how the Japanese state has responded to the challenge of devising budgetary policies that accommodate both domestic and international concerns.
