Asia in Japan's embrace : building a regional production alliance by Walter Hatch( )

26 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and Italian and held by 1,589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japan has a growing presence throughout the Asian region, and Walter Hatch and Kozo Yamamura find that many standard Japanese business practices have been transplanted. Central to this argument is the concept of cooperation between industry and government, labor and management, and even independent firms belonging to the same keiretsu (enterprise group). This cooperation allows a complex web of quasi-integrated vertical production networks to develop. The book shows that such strategic control of technology is a unique model of globalization. The authors recommend ways in which damaging 'trade wars' between Japan and the West can be avoided, making this book essential reading for businesspeople, policymakers, academics, and students
An anticlassical political-economic analysis : a vision for the next century by Yasusuke Murakami( )

9 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his final work, one that distills decades of research and thought, a distinguished economic thinker turned social scientist and philosopher confronts three crucial questions facing the world at the end of the century: How and in what form can a harmonious and stable post-cold war world order be created? How can the world maintain the economic performance necessary for the well-being of people while minimizing international economic conflicts and further deterioration of the world's environment? What must be done to safeguard the freedoms of all peoples?

The end of diversity? : prospects for German and Japanese capitalism by Kōzō Yamamura( )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2018 in English and held by 997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kozo Yamamura and Wolfgang Streeck have gathered an international group of authors to examine the likelihood of convergence - to determine whether the global forces of Anglo-American capitalism will give rise to a single, homogeneous capitalist system. The chapters in this volume approach this question from five directions: international integration, technological innovation, labor relations and production systems, financial regimes and corporate governance, and domestic politics
Economic and demographic change in preindustrial Japan, 1600-1868 by Susan B Hanley( Book )

21 editions published between 1967 and 2015 in English and held by 896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to the Marxist interpretation still dominant in Japanese studies, the last century and a half of the Tokugawa period was a time of economic and demographic stagnation. Professors Hanley and Yamamura argue that a more satisfactory explanation can be provided within the framework of modem economic theory, and they advance and test three important new hypotheses in this book. The authors suggest that the Japanese economy grew throughout the Tokugawa period, though slowly by modern standards and unevenly. This growth, they show, tended to exceed the rate of population increase even in the poorer regions, thus raising the living standard despite major famines. Population growth was controlled by a variety of methods, including abortion and infanticide, for the primary purpose of raising the standard of living. Contrary to the prevailing view of scholars, thus, the conclusions advanced here indicate that the basis for Japan's rapid industrialization in the Meiji period was in many ways already established during the latter part of the Tokugawa period. The authors' analysis combines original fieldwork with study of data based on findings of the postwar years. Originally published in 1978. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905

The economic emergence of modern Japan by Kōzō Yamamura( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Economic Emergence of Modern Japan is a useful book for those interested in how Japan succeeded in transforming an agricultural economy into an advanced industrial economy. This volume brings together chapters from The Cambridge History of Japan, Volumes 5 and 6, and The Cambridge Economic History of Europe, Volume 7, part 2. Each of the seven chapters, written by leading specialists in Japanese economic history, explains in an authoritative, detailed analysis how institutions, the behaviour of individuals and firms, and official policies changed in order to enable Japan to accumulate capital, adopt new technology, ensure a skilled labour-force, and increase exports of manufactured goods. The authors pay special attention to distinctive Japanese institutions and policies, the effect of the Tokugawa legacy, and the impact of various wars, and the global economy

Too much stuff : capitalism in crisis by Kōzō Yamamura( )

13 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Where has capitalism gone wrong? Why are advanced capitalist economies so sick, and why do conventional policy solutions such as reduced taxes and increased money supply produce only wider income disparity and inequality? We are now living in a new world in which a majority of people enjoys the highest living standard in history, acquiring more and more goods and services as necessary luxuries. But as Kozo Yamamura shows, despite our apparent lust for gourmet food and designer clothes, for larger homes, the latest gadgets, and exotic vacations, demand for these goods actually grows slowly, so relying on them to reinvigorate our economies will not succeed. With Too Much Stuff, Yamamura upends conventional capitalist wisdom to provide a new approach. He calls for increased tax-funded demand to address a range of societal needs such as environmental concerns, social safety nets, infrastructure, and better education and housing for all. By addressing these needs, argues Yamamura, we can also take huge steps toward reducing the growing wealth gap that threatens global democracy. Both solutions-oriented and accessibly written, this book draws on fascinating case studies from the United States, Japan, and Germany, as well as convincing evidence from across the Western world, to suggest practical steps forward that we can all understand and support. Too Much Stuff boldly challenges the economic orthodoxy and, in so doing, challenges us to think outside the box for the betterment of all. --
The Cambridge history of Japan by Kōzō Yamamura( )

36 editions published between 1989 and 2008 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This third volume of the Cambridge History of Japan is devoted to the three and a half centuries spanning the final decades of the twelfth century when the Kamakura bakufu was founded to the mid-sixteenth century when civil wars raged following the demise of the Muromachi bakufu. Volume 3 contains 13 specially commissioned essays written by leading Japanese and American scholars that survey the historical events and developments in medieval Japan's polity, economy, society and culture, as well as its relations with its Asian neighbours. The essays reflect the most recent scholarly research on the history of this period. The volume creates a rich tapestry of the events that took place during these colourful centuries, when the warrior class ruled Japan, institutions underwent fundamental transformations, the economy grew steadily, and Japanese culture and society evolved with surprising vitality to leave legacies that still characterize and affect contemporary Japan. A meticulously prepared glossary of terms and a chronological table of major historical events and developments are included
