AbstractOutsiders have been fascinated by Japan’s economy since Marco Polo described Cipangu as a land of gold. Centuries later Columbus sailed to discover it. External observers’ descriptions may not always have been accurate but they have often been influential. This lecture will look at some of the most important discussions in the English language literature on Japan’s economy and will reflect on how the major themes have changed over the last half century.
