This view of business groups is underscored by the business histories of many of the countries surveyed in this volume. The earliest origins of Japan’s family business groups, or zaibatsu, were to circumvent low-trust problems. For example, the Mitsui family expanded into commodity trading because their silk business depended on barter deals. They later moved into banking to move Japan beyond barter deals into a real ﬁnancial system. It also helps explain the structures of business groups. The relational approach to strategy and economics propounded by Dyer and Singh (1998), Landes (1998), and Portes (1998) suggests that economic success depends on eﬀective network relationships.
Each of these business groups controlled numerous listed companies and was directed by a forceful, politically appointed CEO. Aganin and Volpin thus argue that, since postwar Italian politicians opted to allocate capital via an industrial policy rather than via the ﬁnancial system, they saw no great need for investor protection. Investors opted for government bonds, rather than shares, and the Italian stock market shrank steadily through the middle of the century. New entrants found public share issues very expensive, while politicians assisted established large business groups with cheap capital.
Social Democratic politicians wanted a stable large corporate sector controlled by Swedes, who were thought more susceptible than foreign owners to political pressure and hence more likely to buy into Social Democracy eventually. Sweden’s wealthy families, who used small blocks of super-voting shares to hold together their vast py- 24 Randall K.

Buying into Social Democracy apparently seemed a reasonable price for policies that locked in their corporate governance powers.
