Eleanor M. Hadley
with Patricia Hagan Kuwayama

Eleanor Hadley‘s experiences with Japan and its postwar economy are ground-breaking. While pursuing a doctorate in economics at Harvard she was recruited by the U.S. government for her knowledge of Japan, and subsequently became one of the key advisors to the Occupation Forces in Japan just after World War II. Dr. Hadley became widely known as the “trust-busting beauty” among Japanese business and government leaders of the time and is an economist renowned in both the U.S. and Japan for her contributions in the area of antitrust and pro-competition policies. Co-author Patricia Hagan Kuwayama is an economist and scholar with years of Japan experience in the financial sector. Drawing on their new book, Memoir of a Trustbuster: A Life-long Adventure with Japan, Drs. Hadley and Kuwayama raise policy issues that have once again become salient internationally as both the U.S. and Japan re-examine the role of corporations and the nature of economic power.
