  • 12 Downloads

Abstract

Those who deal with and understand the public budget system in United States government will see much that seems the same in the Japanese system. In both cases, it is useful to think about the budget in phases — the managerial phase and the political phase — although of course they meld together. The great surprise which emerges for American observers is the relative value of these two phases in terms of how the substance of the budget is really determined.
