Management Resources and their Development

  • Yoshitaka Suzuki
Part of the Studies in the Modern Japanese Economy book series (SMJE)


This book has examined the development of managerial hierarchies of large-scale Japanese firms. We started with a hypothesis that a firm is formed when the market or other forms of outside transactions is substituted by an internal allocation of resources. A firm can develop through the internalisation of one kind of resource such as labour, capital, and the flow of goods.
