Economic Thought in Early Modern Japan
Bettina Gramlich-Oka, Gregory Smits
Brill, 2010 - Business & Economics - 298 pages
This volume explores early modern formations of economic thought and policy in a country widely regarded as having followed a unique, non-Western path to capitalism. In discussing such topics as money and the state, freedom and control, national interest ideology, shogunal politics and networks, case studies of the Saga Domain and Ryukyu Kingdom, Confucian banking, early Meiji entrepreneurship, and relationships between macroeconomic fluctuations and policy, the essays here deepen and revise our understanding of early modern Japan. They also enlarge and refine the analytical vocabulary for describing early modern economic thought and policy, thereby raising issues of interest to scholars of world history and economic thought outside of Japan or East Asia.
