Summary

Summary

Japan's External Economic Relations provides a study of the antecedents, current situations and prospects for the phenomenon of Japanese predominance in the world economy and the extent to which other nations feel threatened by this. The articles discuss changes in Japan's global position as a cumulative result of its well-chosen strategic response to domestic problems and international constraints. Specific aspects of Japan's external economic relations are analyzed, such as the private sector's foreign direct investment, the government's official development aid and Japan's dependence on resource imports. Qualitative, institutional aspects of Japan's international involvement are explored and the potentially devastating impact of the growing rift between the have's and the have not's in a society previously and rightly thought to be egalitarian are considered.
