    Abstract

    The purpose of this study is: (1) to examine the determinants of economic growth in Japan over time, and (2) to see if there is any time-series support for FDI-led growth hypothesis in Japan. To achieve these goals the study uses a model that is based on the postulates of de Mello. Employing a 35-year period of annual data, the model is estimated by using the Beach-Mackinnon technique, which corrects for autocorrelation. The estimation results suggest: (1) the major determinants of economic growth in Japan are total factor productivity, and domestic investment growth; (2) there are no causal relationships between foreign direct investment growth and economic growth in either direction; and (3) there are no causal relationships between foreign direct investment growth and total factor productivity growth in either direction.
