Why has Japan succeeded? : Western technology and the Japanese ethos by Michio Morishima( Book )

76 editions published between 1982 and 2003 in 5 languages and held by 1,382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, by a distinguished Japanese economist now resident in the West, offers a new interpretation of the current success of the Japanese economy. By placing the rise of Japan in the context of its historical development, Michio Morishima shows how a strongly-held national ethos has interacted with religious, social and technological ideas imported from elsewhere to produce highly distinctive cultural traits. While Professor Morishima traces the roots of modern Japan back as far as the introduction of Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism from China in the sixth century, he concentrates his observations on the last 120 years during which Japan has had extensive contacts with the West. He describes the swift rise of Japan to the status of a first-rate power following the Meiji Revolution after 1867, in which Japan broke with a long history of isolationism, and which paved the way for the adoption of Western technology and the creation of a modern Western-style nation state; and a similarly meteoric rise from the devastation of the Second World War to Japan's present position. A range of factors in Japan's economic success are analysed: her characteristic dualistic social structure - corresponding to the divide between large and medium/small enterprises - the relations of government and big business, the poor reception of liberalism and individualism, and the strength of the Japanese nationalism. Throughout, Professor Morishima emphasises the importance of the role played in the creation of Japanese capitalism by ethical doctrines as transformed under Japanese conditions, especially the Japanese Confucian tradition of complete loyalty to the firm and to the state. This account, which makes clear the extent to which the economic rise of Japan is due to factors unique to its historical traditions, will be of interest to a wide general readership as well as to students of Japan and its history

Ricardo's economics : a general equilibrium theory of distribution and growth by Michio Morishima( Book )

19 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, together with Marx's Economic and Walras' Economics, completes a sequence of titles by Professor Morishima on the first generation of scientific economists. The author's assessment of Ricardo differs substantially from the established views adopted by economists and historians of economic thought. While economists such as Pasinetti, Caravale and Samuelson have concentrated on macroeconomic interpretations of Ricardo, and historians of economic thought have emphasised his labour theory of value, Morishima takes a different course. In this book the author concentrates on Ricardo's main work, The Principles, and shows that his economics is the prototype of mathematical economies without the symbols and formulae. Morishima then translates Ricardo's economics into mathematical language to find a general equilibrium system (very similar to Walras') concealed within. The analysis also contradicts the conventional view that marginalism emerged in opposition to classical economics, showing instead that Ricardian analysis is firmly based on marginalist principles, using prices, wages and profits rather than labour values. The book ends with a discussion of the historical character of economic theory and an attempt to specify the epoch of Ricardian economics
The economics of industrial society by Michio Morishima( Book )

19 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a stimulating and original introduction to the economics of industrial society. It is intended for use as a student text, but will also be of interest to all those - whether students or teachers - looking for new ways of understanding the economic problems of industrialised countries. It provides an effective critique of current economic theories, and develops an original model of the economics (whether neo-classical, Marxist, or Keynesian) of modern industrial society. Throughout the book the analysis is oriented towards the solution of problems in the real world, and towards explaining the operation of economic institutions in different countries. The work looks at the way individual markets operate, the determination of foreign exchange rates, the problem of unemployment, and the fiscal and monetary policies needed to tackle unemployment. This book analyses the case of an industrial country entirely dependent on other countries for its raw materials
Capital and credit : a new formulation of general equilibrium theory by Michio Morishima( Book )

30 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in 3 languages and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary general equilibrium theory is characteristically short-run, separated from monetary aspects of the economy, and as such does not deal with long-run problems such as capital accumulation, innovation, and the historical movement of the economy. These phenomena are discussed by growth theory, which assumes a given or shifting production function, and in turn cannot therefore deal with the fundamental problem of growth, namely how the production function is derived. Thus traditional theories have a common weakness in that they divorce real economic growth from the activities of the financial sector. This book provides a much-needed synthesis of growth theory and monetary theory. Professor Morishima draws on the work of Schumpeter, Keynes and the pre-war neoclassical economists to formulate a capital-theoretic general equilibrium theory
Dynamic economic theory by Michio Morishima( Book )

30 editions published between 1980 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together in a single coherent framework a research programme begun by the author over 40 years ago. The main model around which the analysis is built is Hicksian in character having been drawn in large part from John Hicks Value and Capital. The model is extended so as to include money and securities. In respect of the theory of the firm the model focuses on demand and supply plans, on inputs and outputs, on inventories, and on the dependencies between them. The stability of temporary equilibrium is discussed for linear and non-linear cases. Because the concept of structural stability is important for understanding non-linear cases, it is defined and applied to the case of economic motion generated from the temporary equilibrium analysis. The addenda focus on developments in economic theory following the publication of the main model

Japan at a deadlock by Michio Morishima( Book )

23 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and Japanese and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Morishima casts his intellectual net broadly. He probes social, cultural and economic factors for answers to the dual enigma of Japan's earlier vitality and its current stagnation. In doing so, he accomplishes the unusual feat of both seeing how organizations and individuals actually behave, and presenting analytic concepts with practical explanatory value.' - Kent E. Calder, Japan Quarterly
Collaborative development in Northeast Asia by Michio Morishima( Book )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and Japanese and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Collaborative Development in Northeast Asia. Michio Morishima is concerned with an imaginary world as Joseph Schumpeter was in Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy. Unlike that model, Morishima's explicitly assumes that both 'politicians' and 'entrepreneurs' are active in making innovations in the political and business worlds respectively. Only then would an 'Asian community' made up of China, Japan, two Koreas and Taiwan be possible. He examines how such a community would work and argues that it is the only hope for Asia's revival."--Jacket

13 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
