Lol. This guy presents the American victor looting the spoils of their conquered enemy as “eating the rich” and the move by American capital to incorporate the Japanese bougeoisie (like they did the Germans) into their international system in order to stymie the USSR/China as wise policymaking on the part of the Japanese and “an economic miracle.” What a shameless doofar! Japan is a creation of Washington and nothing more.
The abortive dismantling of the zaibatsu was a policy undertaken by MacArthur in order to limit Japanese industrial competitiveness much in the framework of the also abandoned Morgenthau plan. This is not some policy of “eating the rich” like the anime watcher who narrated that video makes it seem. And it had nothing to do with Japan’s future growth.Could you please detail the "looting" that Japan endured following its surrender?
Japan grew to be the 2nd largest economy following its defeat and gained access to the U.S. market, so how exactly is this evidence of it being looted?
The economic reforms in Japan took place before WW2, so I don't understand your narrative.
