Memoir of a Trustbusterby Eleanor M. Hadley
Synopses & Reviews
Widely known (and feared) by Japanese businessmen and government leaders as "the trust-busting beauty" Hadley published Antitrust in Japan, a seminal work on the impact of postwar deconcentration measures, in 1970.
Book News Annotation:
After earning a PhD in economics from Radcliffe, Hadley went on to serve under General Macarthur's American occupation government of post-war Japan. She primarily worked on the "deconcentration" policies of the occupation government, which sought to break up the power of the Zaibatsu in the Japanese economy. Upon her return to the United States she found herself unable to get work in the U.S. government, partly due to gender issues and partly because she had been accused of having leftist sympathies. Here she tells the story of those years.
