Japanese Economic Development

This book mixes detailed case study material with description and analysis of Japanese economic and social history, and it presents a comparative survey of the development experience in the rest of the world.

Japanese Economic Development

Japanese companies are household names throughout the world, and the economy vies with America as the greatest in the world. But how much do we really know about the forces that have made this possible? This book is based on the premise that it is vital to know something about Japanese life in order to study the economic, political and social aspects of its economic development. The book traces the roots of the Japanese post-war miracle, looking behind the international influence of Japanese business to the millions of ordinary workers in factories, in workshops, and on farms, who have made it possible. How have their lives changed over the hundred years of industrialization? Is the Japanese work ethic uniquely equipped for such a challenge, or could the Japanese example be extended to today's Third World? This book mixes detailed case study material with description and analysis of Japanese economic and social history, and it presents a comparative survey of the development experience in the rest of the world.

Drawing on the expertise of scholars in several disciplines, it links history to topics such as behavioural geography, interdependence, divergence and regional and urban policy. This innovative book will be of interest to researchers across regional studies, planning, economic geography and economic history.

A Short History of Man

Dr. Hoppe examines and answers all of these often thorny questions without resorting to platitudes or bowdlerized history. This is Hoppe at his best: calmly and methodically skewering sacred cows.

A Short History of Man

A Short History of Man: Progress and Decline represents nothing less than a sweeping revisionist history of mankind, in a concise and readable volume. Dr. Hans-Hermann Hoppe skillfully weaves history, sociology, ethics, and Misesian praxeology to present an alternative — and highly challenging — view of human economic development over the ages. As always, Dr. Hoppe addresses the fundamental questions as only he can. How do family and social bonds develop? Why is the concept of private property so vitally important to human flourishing? What made the leap from a Malthusian subsistence society to an industrial society possible? How did we devolve from aristocracy to monarchy to social democratic welfare states? And how did modern central governments become the all-powerful rulers over nearly every aspect of our lives? Dr. Hoppe examines and answers all of these often thorny questions without resorting to platitudes or bowdlerized history. This is Hoppe at his best: calmly and methodically skewering sacred cows.

Applying Risk Sharing Finance for Economic Development

This book examines the application of risk-sharing finance as a national economic policy in history and how it stimulated economic recovery during a short period in Germany between 1933 and 1935.

Applying Risk Sharing Finance for Economic Development

This book examines the application of risk-sharing finance as a national economic policy in history and how it stimulated economic recovery during a short period in Germany between 1933 and 1935. Economic history indicates that risk-sharing instruments have promoted socio-economic development in many parts of the world while risk-shifting methods have imposed huge socio-economic costs on many nations, leading to debt slavery on individual members. This book highlights lessons to be learned from history and argues that risk-sharing is a powerful tool for generating rapid economic recovery and resumption of growth.
