Description - Japan's War Economy by Erich Pauer
Japan's economic growth in the wake of the Second World War was extraordinarily rapid. The August 1945 surrender is often taken as starting point for studies of this growth, but it is now accepted that a continuous line of economic development may be traced from the pre- to post-war periods. Japan's War Economy explores the substantial and dynamic innovations of the wartime era, identifying this period as the most influential for the country's post-war economic structure. Erich Pauer and a team of leading Japanese and German scholars discuss important aspects of the Japanese wartime economy, including: * ideological background * the Japanese planned economy * technical mobilization * women and the war economy * socio-economic change * food shortages, the black market and economic crime * national policy companies * financial reforms This fascinating work clearly reveals the influence of the German quest for Lebensraum and the stunning success of subjecting the economy to national goals. Japan's War Economy will prove essential reading for economists, historians and political scientists working in this growing area of research.
