The Failure of the Japanese Miracle


Britain expects that every man will do his duty...
My house, in the middle of the street
In the years following WW2 Japan recovered from the devastation wrought by the war so rapidly and so effectively that by the 1960s it had the third-largest economy in the world, only smaller than that of the United States and the Soviet Union. However, this economic miracle was not predetermined and as such I would like to discuss: with a POD no earlier than 1945, how can Japan's development be derailed? Can it still happen even with the Marshall Plan aid? Could it happen via the disruption of Japan's democracy?

Never peg the Yen to the dollar is my first thought.

whilst im unsure how much is will effect the first stage of the economic miracle the later 60s and 70s export driven growth will just not happen at the same rate.
