The Working of the Labour Market

  • Toshiaki Tachibanaki
Part of the Studies on the Modern Japanese Economy book series


This chapter and the subsequent two chapters examine the general working of the labour market with emphasis on issues such as: ‘Why is Japan’s unemployment rate so low in comparison with other industrialized countries?’, ‘Was there any effective labour policy to reduce the rate of unemployment in Japan?’, and others. The discussion for these issues is not comprehensive but fairly selective. Readers, however, will be able to understand the essence of these issues fairly accurately.
