  • Ryōshin Minami
Part of the Studies in the Modern Japanese Economy book series


In this chapter we discuss government activities and finance. Section 10.1 discusses the importance of government expenditure in the economy and changes in the structure of government revenue and expenditure, and in Section 10.2 we evaluate the influence of government financial activities, particularly in connection with economic growth. In Section 10.3 we turn our attentions to changes in the financial system, the circulation of capital and overloan/overborrowing. Finally, in Section 10.4 we discuss changes in the amount and structure of the money supply, and changes in the Marshallian k, which regulates the demand for currency.
