JEI's Spin On The

JEI Web Site
Now A Public Resource
All materials on this site are now an open resource
usernames & passwords no longer are needed to
access the full-text archive of JEI Report and
the Japan-U.S. Business Report.
Furthermore, this site will remain online for at least
the next several years. I am shifting our site to a new ISP,
so do not be surprised if you encounter some problems,
particularly in regard to searching the site. I will try to
iron out all the problems as quickly as possible.
As my time permits, I hope to continue to add older
issues of JEI Report to the archive, going back as far as I
have hard copies (1980). If you have any questions or
comments, please feel free to

JEI Phases Out
Arthur J. Alexander
June 9, 2000
The Japan Economic Institute of America has come to the
conclusion that it must phase out operations over the course
of the current fiscal year, which ends March 31, 2001.
Several considerations dictated this difficult decision:
reduced and uncertain funding from the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs due to the tight budget situation of the Japanese
government, lower revenues from JEI's publications and from
other activities, and the difficulty of finding additional
funds from alternate sources for continued operations. Over
the past several years, JEI's sister organizations in
Australia, Canada, France, Germany and the United Kingdom
have had to make similar decisions.
We hope to publish JEI Report through September
2000. Subscribers with subscriptions that run beyond that
time will receive a refund for the unfilled portion.
In the 10 years that I have been president of JEI, the
organization has enjoyed the whole-hearted support of the
Foreign Ministry, even when we published reports that were
not totally consistent with official policy. In fact, it was
JEI's analytical independence that gave its publications and
staff the credibility valued by our audience.
The entire staff of the Japan Economic Institute would
like to thank subscribers as well as other colleagues and
friends for their support and interest in the organization
and its work over the years.
