Contents
In order to understand how Japan transformed itself from a developing to a developed country, it is critical to examine the economic activities of the government, businesses, and people in the past. We also discuss political and social change because Japan's history has important implications for the contemporary economy, politics, and society. “Japanese Economic History 1” covers the period between the 17th century up to, but not including, the First World War. “Japanese Economic History 2” covers the period between 1914 and the 1960s. This online course consists of lectures and class discussions, in which students are expected to actively participate.
