Synopsis:
A conference aimed at addressing government buyouts of distressed private enterprises (such as the US buyout of General Motors) and government ownership of companies (such as SOEs in China and government owned enterprises in Japan including NTT, Japan Post, Japan Tobacco, etc). Topics explored will include deregulation, privatization, and how TPP is trying to define the rules for trade and other international operations.

Summary Description:
The conference will begin with three presentations, each examining the general policy and rationale for government intervention in firms in Japan, the U.S. and China. Each presentation will be followed by a short conversation involving discussants. This series of presentations will allow both an overarching insight each country’s attitude toward government intervention as well as provide specific examples. Following this series of presentations will be a roundtable panel.
