Japan, who Governs?: The Rise of the Developmental State

Front Cover

1 Review
Japan is the world's richest country in terms of per capita income. Even during a recession the country is in the black. Japan's school system produces a blue-collar work force possessing skills that come only with a college degree in most Western countries. Its pension and health delivery systems are efficient and relatively inexpensive, and its unemployment rate half that of the United States and Germany.
