This volume discusses the connections between income distribution and a number of the social factors that influence it: education and other forms of investment in human capital; family structures and family values; work incentives and job satisfaction; and class conflict. The author discusses the intersections of these factors in Japanese society and their impact on Japan's income distribution patterns, savings behavior, labor supply patterns, and reported job satisfaction among Japanese workers, applying a theoretical model based on the work of Kenneth Arrow and Jurg Niehans.
