In this chapter, I first overview modern Japanese economic history from a long-term perspective for the period between the mid-nineteenth and mid-twentieth centuries while putting the Japanese economy in its global context. I then review Japan’s macroeconomic performance and policies during the 1930s focusing on exchange rate, fiscal, and monetary policies.
