Examines the problem of organized crime. Shows how Japan's institutional environment for economic activity—specifically gaps between legal rights ‘on the books’ and the state's ability to enforce those rights in practice—have provided incentives for entrepreneurship on the dark side of society. Japanese organized crime syndicates, like other actors in the economy, respond to the rules of the game.

Keywords:   economic institutions, enforcement, entrepreneurship, Japan, legal rights, organized crime, syndicates
