In “Shimomuran Economics and The Rise of The Tokyo Consensus” (published by Lulu), author George Tait Edwards explores Shimomuran Economics and how it helped leading Asian economics achieve a much higher growth than their Western counterparts. The book provides a detailed explanation of the concept, as well as delving into its history and looking at how Western economies could benefit from its adoption.

Shimomuran Economics provides a solid basis for funding innovation and growth within explicit government policy and Edwards believes the United States and other Western countries should make use of it as soon as possible. “It provides a fresh-to-the-West system of macroeconomic understanding which has the potential to reverse the West's relative economic decline,” Edwards explains.

Over 44 years of economic research has led Edwards to Dr. Osamu Shimomura’s economic theory and the historical proof of his tenets. Edwards hopes that readers will take away, “A new system of macroeconomic understanding - not just an insight into one aspect of the Shimomuran Consensus Zone but a whole system of fundamental interlocking macroeconomic principles which have been successfully practiced for decades by the four nations in that Zone (Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and China).”
