Assessing Japan’s Industrial Competitiveness by International Productivity Level: Comparison with China, Korea, Taiwan and the United States
Kazuyuki Motohashi ()
Chapter 8 in Productivity in Asia, 2007 from Edward Elgar Publishing
The outstanding economic performance of East Asian countries has been investigated in numerous studies. However, most comparative studies analyze macro-level productivity. In this book, the productivity performance of China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan and the United States are compared at industry level. The work is a result of an international collaborative research project by RIETI (Research Institute of Economy, Trade and Industry), Japan. The total factor productivity growth and level amongst these five countries sheds new light on the industrial competitiveness of growing Asian economies compared to Japan and the United States. In addition, this book provides detailed information on productivity datasets for these five countries.
