User: How has japandeveloped economically and politically since World War II?

Weegy: At the end of World War II, Japan's economy was in ruins. The major urban and industrial areas had been almost completely destroyed by the U.S. Army Air Force incendiary raids which had commenced in the summer of 1944. [ The transportation network was destroyed, the merchant marine navy had ceased to exist, the agricultural sector was unable to meet even the requirements of basic subsistence and food stocks were non-existant. It was only due to the reluctant and belated intervention of the U.S. Government (many members of the Congress and the Truman administration were opposed to feeding the Japanese) that wide spread starvation of the Japanese populace was averted in 1946. It is a wide spread belief that the United States "rebuilt" Japan's economy after World War II. This is not true. More countries were involved in the rebuilding. Following the surrender, Japan was occupied by the allied powers, chiefly the United States with the lesser participation of the British, until 1952 when the peace treaty was signed. One of the conditions of the surrender was that Japan make war reparations. Both the United States and the Soviet Union seized capital assets, cash, and property in both Japan proper and the the former Japanese occupied areas of Manchuria as partial payment toward these reparations. This had the effect of further crippling what remained of Japan's industry and economy. The United States cancelled further payments in 1954 but the payment of reparations to other countries continued long after. Some sources assert that Japanese war reparations exceeded by a large margin the amount of foreign aid received by Japan which in any case was chiefly in the form of bank loans. Nor was Japan the recipient of an aid program such as the Marshall Plan which attempted to rebuild Europe. Despite massive infusions of Marshall Plan dollars and assistance to Great Britain and France, neither country ever regained its pre-war economic power. Japan's economic miracle was largely due, not to any overt action of the United States, but to the industriousness of its people. ]
