Description - Japanese Economics and Economists since 1945 by Aiko Ikeo
In this book, leading Japanese scholars present an objective study of Japanese economics since 1945, based on statistical data and analysis. In part one, the influence and impact of Japanese economics within the international academy is assessed. The book demonstrates the increasingly important contribution of Japanese approaches to theoretical and mathematical economics, and includes a detailed case-study of the relationship between Japanese and Marxist economic theory. In the post-war era, Japanese economists have been increasingly woven into the fabric of Japanese administrative and political life. In this context, part Two investigates the impact of Japanese economics on policy-making. The book dissects the formulation of the famous 'industrial structure policy', and compares 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.
