The first point which was considered was the economic reconstruction after World War 2 and the prosperity that followed in Japan. The remarkable recovery from the economic losses suffered from the war and the following spectacular economic growth in this country as well as in West Germany is deemed as the miracle in the current world. It is said that this economic development has mainly depended on such human factors as knowledge and talents which had been accumulated since pre-War periods. And such accumulated knowledge and talents are no doubt the very results of education in the past.

The second point to be mentioned is the fact that Japan is included among such countries as Canada, West Germany, Israel, the U.S.S.R. and the U.S.A. which have achieved exceedingly rapid economic growth through this century.

Political, social and cultural factors undoubtedly contributed to the economic growth of those countries, but the effects of these factors varied between countries in both kind and weight. The countries mentioned above as having achieved rapid economic growth, however, have one factor in common: namely, the important role of their educational institutions. Furthermore, it should be noted that the educational systems of such countries were modernized ones intentionally and strongly orientated toward technogical progress and economic development. Japanese modern education also had been developed in this direction.

The third point noted from comparison with other countries concerning the role of education in achieving economic development in Japan, is the overcoming of disadvantages by the introduction and diffusion of a modern educational system during the so-called 'take-off' period.

Japan now is approaching the economic level of developed Western countries, in advance of other Asian-African countries, despite beginning modernization of society and industry later than the European countries, her overcrowded population and her very scarce natural resources. Like Japan in Asia, Denmark in Europe is mentioned as a country which overcame such disadvantages of underdeveloped status, overcrowded population and scarcity of natural resources. A common basis for the economic development of Denmark and Japan has been the introduction of a modern educational system, especially the spread of general elementary education to farm families who constituted the major part of the labor force in the beginning period of modernization. Thus, the role of modern education in achieving economic development in Japan may be said to have been very important. (Araki, 1963)
