Why did Japan need to rebuild its economy following world war 2

 Japan had already developed to a high level in heavy manufacturing, steel making, ship building, heavy chemicals and vehicle manufacturing prior to WW2 based on a policy of a partnership between business and government with a high degree of government direction and assistance with investment. With the destruction by bombing of much of Japans industrial infrastructure the Japanese took the opportunity to invest in new state of the art manufacturing facilities. As a result Japan spent a higher percentage of its GDP on investment than countries like the US and the UK and Japanese consumers accepted that sacrifices had to be made in the medium term to rebuild the economy and accepted a lower standard of living in the years following the war. A system of training and apprenticeships in industry was also highly developed and the university system had close links to industry to provide the correct level of trained management personnel. The Japanese system of a 'job for life' plus a comprehensive structured system of training and development of managers ensured that knowledge was developed and transmitted in a way superior to that in Western companies. In a large Japanese company a manager will do a 3 year stint in a particular position at home or abroad and receive close training and monitoring by his immediate manager who he will probably take over from. The result of this system is that 3 levels of management have a detailed knowledge of the job etc at any one time. In the West managers move between companies a lot more leading to a loss of accumulated knowledge to that company.

One of the effects of this is the imminent international traffic of individuals who, either working for a multinational organization or being owners of their own businesses, will inevitably enter in contact with individuals with a completely different cultural background. Cultural diffusion serves as a tool that aims to facilitate interaction among individuals from different geographies and backgrounds.

PLESE JUST ANSWER ME ALREADY I HOVE USED OVER 40 POINTS ASKING THIS QUESTION MULTIPLE TIMES I JUST WANT AN ANSWER! please all I need you to do is describe Victorian era food and what it was like in those times please make it as long as possible

1: Rich and Poor Children had vastly different lifestyles when it came to food. The rich children would dine on significant amounts of food and waste food too whereas the poor would have limited meals of low quality. A large quantity of the population were living on dripping, bread, tea and vegetables. Certainly not the greatest diet!

2: Street vendors within the Victorian times would sell a number of ‘different’ foods including Rice milk, Ginger beer and Sheeps trotters. Never a dull moment within the Victorian times!

3: The diet for those Victorians who were very poor was terrible. Potato pairings & rotten vegetables were sometimes the dish of the day and for children born into this background this was exceptionally difficult for growth.

4: Those from the farming industry tended to eat much better. A diet of meat, vegetables, fresh milk was commonly available and they were available to feed their children the nutrients they needed for growth and development.

5: The level of meat ratio at meal times decreases through the classes. The wealthy Victorian family would have meat daily and cheese and bacon for supper. Where wages begin to decrease meat would only be on the menu 2-3 times a week with a now increased volume of potatoes/vegetables. This would continue to decrease until the lowest rung of the ladder where the poorest would have potatoes as the sole food. The difference in eating habits was substantial.

6: With the start of school for children and industrialisation breakfast was seen as the most important meal of the day. Middle class breakfast was substantial with everyday consisting of bacon, eggs, ham, haddock, coffee, fruits and bread. Think of a modern day hotel breakfast.

7: Poor children had few food luxuries and ate poor food (see above). The rich however would be well fed every morning and would have extra luxuries accessible.

8: The diet within the Victorian era changed dramatically. Children typically ate what they were given by their parents so whatever was on the menu for the adults was available for the children.

9: Children living on farms would have a far better diet than those within the city. Vegetables could be stored all year round in a root cellar whereas in the city you had to consume what was in season.

Here's for the foods portion. I'm getting the second part of your question in just a minute here.

After fighting the war in Korea, the US had learned that communism would spread. In order to keep with their policy of containment, they had to rush in and stop Viet Cong from spreading communism (much like the domino theory that the US had). Had Viet Cong not wanted to bring about communism, there would be no need for invasion, and the domino theory would have yet to be proven.
