This book is an introduction to the postwar Japanese economy. Some 64 years have passed since the end of World War II. During this period, the Japanese economy has seen rapid changes and remarkable progress, although it has also experienced the bubble economy and prolonged stagnation. What kind of changes have we had in those years? In what sense can we say that progress has been made? What lessons have we learned from the experiences?
