The Japanese Tax System

Synopsis

'Should be of immense value to economic historians and public finance specialists... The bibliography is also impressive.' -Asia Pacific Business Review'This book remains the definitive study of Japan's tax policy today and of the history behind it.' -Contemporary ReviewThis book provides English-speakers with a comprehensive description and incisive critique of the Japanese tax system. The third edition explores the Japanese government's latest round of tax reforms - a reaction to the country's prolonged period of recession following the collapse of the 'bubble' phenomenon in 1991. Two brand new chapters discuss the effect of environmental taxes and land tax reform, and much of the original data and empirical material has been updated.
