Table: Flawed Fund

Japan's banks need to sell $110 billion in stock during the next three years, some of it to a government-run fund. Here's how it will work:

1. The fund will be set up by the banking industry with $16 billion in government-guaranteed private-sector loans

2. Banks will sell shares to the fund, most for a fraction of their original value

3. The stock will be bundled into exchange- traded funds and sold to the public

4. The fund will be dissolved in 10 years, or earlier if all stock is sold
