Traditional Communities

  • Shinji Yamashige
Part of the Advances in Japanese Business and Economics book series (AJBE, volume 16)


In the following two chapters, we turn to the economic analysis of a community, which we defined in Chap.  1 as a network of people who are not motivated to seek profits. The family we discussed in the last two chapters is an example of the community, but communities extend beyond families.
