The Effect of Innovation and Technological Change on Information Flows, Authority and Industry Associations in Japan
How did innovation and technological change affect information flows and the degree of legitimacy afforded authorities such as industry associations?

Second, in response to changes spurred by technological innovation, the legitimacy of authority that was lost could be regained.
