Planning of the National Economy
In this chapter I want to look at Keizai Hakusho, the Economic White Paper (hereafter the White Paper or the Paper) produced by the Keizai Kikaku-cho, the Economic Planning Agency (EPA) now incorporated into Naikaku-fu.2 The Paper is published annually in August or around this time as an official government report on the economy. It is the product of the approach developed by the Japanese government in an effort to understand the nature and the working of the economy, and has been published annually for many years.
