In this chapter, we conclude our analysis with three parts. The first section explains the consequences of our hypothesis verification concerning the morality of Japanese merchants in the Edo period. The second section summarizes our findings on how Edo period merchants put their theories of morality into practice. The third section suggests future areas of study, research, and analysis.
