The particular speed, form, and consequences of Japanese economic growth are not intelligible without reference to the contributions of MITI.

The 1990s have been termed as 'Japan's lost decade' to describe how the phe nomenal growth in the Japanese economy ground to a halt and the country was crippled by enormous and ongoing political, economic and social problems.
