The earlier eras created key elements of Japan’s postwar domestic political economy, but in the external arena, the Japanese state learned from earlier periods that imperialism had failed and that the United States and the resistance of neighboring nations foreclosed this strategy.
The linkages from these generative sectors spread throughout the ascendant economy, supplying direct inputs for other industries at lower cost, providing infrastructure available for use by other industries and consumers, serving as proﬁt centers, generating capital for investment in existing and new industries, providing markets for other industries, stimulating the development of capital markets that are then available to other industry sectors, and shaping the general pattern of relations between ﬁrms and the state.
Receive much less attention in the literature. The foreclosure of the imperial model of raw materials access by defeat in World War II (Barnhart 1987; Borden 1984; Marshall 1995; McDougall 1993) made a new model necessary after the war. The most important analyses of these questions focus on the so-called ABC raw materials access strategy of depending mainly on Australia, Brazil, and Canada for raw materials since World War II (Akao 1983; Anderson 1987; Graham, Thorpe, and Hogan 1999; Katada 2002a, 2002b; Koerner 1993; McMahon and Harris 1983; Ozawa 1979, 1986; Panda 1982; Swan, Thorpe, and Hogan 1999; Vernon 1983).
