ABSTRACT
The article examines the relationship between economic development and culture in Japan. Japan's twenty-four year rise from the ashes of burned-out cities is a remarkable story: the base on which to rebuild was weak, the methods followed often unorthodox and their success inexplicable by the criteria normally applied by the U.S. In examining the methods employed by the Japanese to achieve their economic recovery, one is continually discovering cultural influences at work that must be traced back to their origin to be understood. An example is the dominant role played by the Japanese Government. During the feudal period, the Shogunate and Clan governments sponsored mining operations and some factories. In 1864 a foreign chamber of commerce was organized in Yokohama. One of its purposes was to find a way of overcoming government obstructions placed in the way of trade. In 1948, when British and American chambers of commerce were organized in Tokyo, their concern over government involvement was almost identical to that of their predecessor 84 years earlier.
