The MIT Encyclopedia of the Japanese EconomyeBook - 1994
The MIT Encyclopedia of the Japanese Economy was the first English-language encyclopedia to cover all major aspects of Japan's postwar economy. The second edition has been fully revised and expanded, and includes previously unpublished data as well as coverage of recent developments in the economy. The definitional entries concisely explain major economic concepts and include translations of Japanese economic terms and cross references to the longer topical essays. The 180 topical essays cover banks, financial systems, major industries, corporate groups, management practices, labor unions, international trade and investments, government economic policies, and more. They also include comprehensive statistics, American and Japanese views on economic relations between the two countries, and suggestions for further reading. A new index contains names of major companies.
From "Administrative guidance" (gyosei shido) to the "Zenshinren Bank," this encyclopedic dictionary defines basic concepts and terms from the Japanese economy. The only work of its kind in English, it is a convenient and comprehensive guide to all important economic and business aspects of dynamic postwar Japan.
