Summary How Japan's banking system maintained continuity of development and avoided the occupiers' attempts at "democratisation" and "Americanisation" is the subject of this book. It explores why the Americans were committed to reform, the reasons they failed and how important the maintenance of the financial status quo was to the subsequent development of Japan's "miracle" economy
