Capitalism of course! Why else do they strive to make sure the system is not under any threat?

Could it be the American constitution as well as Democracy + Capitalism, they all go hand in hand I guess.

I mention the constitution because I think (?) Japan and Germany both have constitutions based on the American one and Japan and Germany have done pretty well.

Yes i suppose it's also the constitution as well but that links in with the system.

the second world war.
...that's going a long way back, but it did allow them to emerge as a global superpower (which they were before then of course).

without the 2nd world war they would never have broken out of the Depression - the war kick started their economy again because they produced weapons and sold them to us and to the U.S. Army

and unemployment was virtually nil due to army expansion. also dont forget that women were introduced as an alternative workforce. the government that was elected as a result of the war dealt with remaining economic crisis instead of adopting a 'do it yourselves' policy when dealing with the public.

(surely that didn't help since they could only focus on their own economy?) Internationalism helped them greatly and that occured after WWII.
