Commonalities between postwar China and Japan include the building of the economy and becoming more resilient as their own independent countries.  Specifically talking about Japan, Brower & Sanders (2014) wrote, “Beginning in the 1950, large U.S. purchases of goods for the troops in Korea gave a strong boost to the Japanese Economy…Finally, it made U.S. modern technology accessible to to Japanese entrepreneurs”  (p. 274).  

Reading forward, Brower & Sanders (2014) wrote, “The Japanese people put into savings an average of 20 percent of their income (in the United States, savings only averaged 7 percent in the early 1960s)” (p.274).  One could look at this and think that an unintended consequence is that it appears as if the United States set up Japan to have a better economy and fiscal responsibility than what was being practiced at home.  Their economy did so well in fact that, “A quarter century after its crushing defeat, Japan had emerged as one of the most productive, prosperous countries in the world” (Brower & Sanders, 2014, p. 274).  This in turn, led Japan to reinvest money into the U.S. economy.  The United States began to buy large amounts of product from Japan.  Both the U.S. and Japanese economies were now dependent on each other.  In the same section we learn of Honda and Sony, who have products that are in virtually every neighborhood in modern day America.
