The Japanese Challenge to the American Neoliberal World Order
Stanford University Press

This chapter evaluates the application of the identity-intention analytical framework in the analysis of Japan's proposal to create the Asian Monetary Fund (AMF) and exclude the United States from membership. It provides an empirical account of Japan's policy change in August 1997 from supporting the U.S./International Monetary Fund-led Thai crisis management to pursuing its own independent measures of the crisis management. The chapter also shows that the framework empirically works and provides a better explanation of Japan's AMF decision in comparison to three major previous explanations pertinent to Japan's AMF decision.

Keywords:   identity-intention framework, Japan, Asian Monetary Fund, United States, policy change, crisis management, International Monetary Fund, Thai crisis management
