An Interview with Miyohei Shinohara: Nonconformism in Japanese Economic Thought

Listed author(s):
  • Amsden, Alice H.
  • Suzumura, Kotaro

Miyohei Shinohara is regarded in Japan as a highly accomlished but unconventional economist, with views on most subjects at odds with those of other major economists. Shinohara talks freely On His Early Formative Influences; On Friedman, Kuznets and Machlup; On the Effect of His Early Work on Japan's Indeustrial Policy; On Long-Term Economic Statistics: On Japan's Bubbles and Reccessions; On Business Cycles and Crises; and On World Hegemony, a Multiple Key Currency and Asia's Growth. Sinohara's stature as an original academic thinker and influential advisor to the government, someone who started his career before the war and participated in most major economic changes, makes this interview particularly informative to later generations.
