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.

How did the political and religious ideas of the Byzantine Empire compare with the Western Empire? a. The Byzantine emperor was considered to be the highest political and religious figure. In the Western Empire, the highest political and religious figures were two different people. b. The Byzantine emperor was considered the political leader, but did not have authority over the church. In the Western Empire, the king had the highest political and religious authority. c. The emperor of the Byzantine Empire was in favor of the use of religious icons, but the pope and bishops in the West were opposed, and excommunicated those who supported this. d. The Patriarch, as the religious authority in the Byzantine Empire, passed a law criminalizing iconoclasts, while the religious leaders in Western Empire supported iconoclasts and their religious ideas.

The correct answer is A) The Byzantine emperor was considered to be the highest political and religious figure. In the Western Empire, the highest political and religious figures were two different people.

The political and religious ideas of the Byzantine Empire compared with the Western Empire in that the Byzantine emperor was considered to be the highest political and religious figure. In the Western Empire, the highest political and religious figures were two different people.

In the western part of the Roman Empire, the Emperor was the ruler and decided on military, politic, and economic matters, but in religion, it was the Pope the ruler of the Church.

The issue regarding religion that faced the Byzantine Empire was the spread of Islam. The religion that became the strongest rival of Christianity in that time was Islam.

Islam spread basically by conquests, trade, and evangelization during the Byzantine Empire times. Traders and conquerors took Islam from the Arabian peninsula to North Africa, the Middle East as far as the Iberian Peninsula. The Ottoman Turks, who were Muslims, spread Islam in the Byzantine Empire.

Why were Japanese-Americans sent to internment camps? a. Japanese Americans were commonly referred to as “alien enemies” by many Americans. b. Many Americans feared Japanese spies and attacks from Japanese-Americans. c. Many Americans feared that Japanese-Americans were loyal to Japan, and not to the U.S. d. All of the above reasons are true.

Answer:

The correct answer is D. Japanese-Americans were sent to internment camps because they were commonly referred to as "alien enemies" by many Americans, who feared Japanese spies and attacks from Japanese-Americans, and that Japanese-Americans were loyal to Japan.

Explanation:

The internment camps for Japanese in the United States accommodated some 120,000 people, who were deported under pressure from the federal government, in establishments designed for that purpose in the interior of the country, during 1942 and 1948.

The objective was to move them from their habitual residence, mostly on the West Coast, to facilities built under extreme security measures. The fields were closed with barbed wire fences, guarded by armed guards, and located in places far from any population center. Attempts to leave the camp sometimes resulted in the dejection of the inmates.
