The Economic Policy Ideas of Tanzan Ishibashi
By reading and interpreting the literature on Ishibashi Tanzan's economic philosophy and the economic policies he attempted to implement as Finance Minister and Prime Minister after the war, Prof. Yutaka Harada will clear up misconceptions about Ishibashi. This work will show how Ishibashi's understanding of the Showa Depression was more modern than that of his contemporaries, and consider what Ishibashi would have said about policies to deal with the current deflation if he were alive today.
