The current Japanese economy is one that has come forth as a result of Japan’s struggle to establish itself as a first-rate imperial power. While its desire to exercise imperialism has curbed over time, it has no affected Japan’s desire to be one of the strongest countries in the world (Buruma, 2009). The transformation that led to the development of the Japanese economy came about immediately after the Second World War when Japan became the first country to exercise the multi-party system in Asia.
Following the Second World War, every effort was made to revive the Japanese democracy. The constitution was revised and ingredients of American style of democracy were injected into the Japanese democratic structure by the allies. Family controlled banking was disbanded and monopolies were abolished.
Japan adopted its democratic constitution in 1947, following the end of the allied occupation. However, following 1985, Japanese democracy has turned into a unique democratic system that is distinct to Japan (Ellington, 2009). The Japanese democratic structure comprises of 47 prefectures, each of which has its unique governor who is selected through election. In addition, each prefecture has its own legislature designed to serve for terms of four years.
