SRC 2004-05: Testing Social Theories through Historically-Informed Sociocultural Analysis: Economic Development in Japan & Taiwan & the ‘Autonomous State’

A historically informed study of economic development in Japan and Taiwan suggests that both modernization and dependency theories are inadequate explanatory schemes without the informing concept of a strong developmentalist state, which is relatively autonomous from local civil and international societies. It was this strong, autonomous state which orchestrated sustained and eventually successful economic growth in Japan and Taiwan. Although the influence of other sociological and economic factors, such as culture and international capital on socioeconomic development are also important, they can be harnessed and modified by such powerful autonomous states to effect economic growth and development.
