In this book, leading Japanese scholars present an objective study of Japanese economics since 1945, based on statistical data and analysis.
The first half of the book assesses the impact and influence of Japanese economics within the international academy, demonstrating the increasingly important contribution of Japanese approaches to theoretical and mathematical economics. Part Two investigates the impact of Japanese economics on policy-making, dissecting the formulation of the famous 'industrial structure policy', and comparing Japanese economics with American and Korean models.
Presenting a wealth of original empirical data, and a new perspective on international economic theory, this book will be of interest to historians, theoreticians and policy-makers alike.
