We build on leading-sector theory (Modelski and Thompson 1996) and on Chandler’s (1977) notion of template to posit that generative sectors emerge around the most complex challenge facing states, firms, and sectors in rapidly rising economies. A generative sector, however, is not necessarily the sector with the highest rate of profit. A generative sector stimulates innovation and development across other sectors, as Rostow (1960) argued in his model of leading sectors. Cooperation, and therefore trust, between firms, sectors, and the state are essential to overcoming the costly contradiction between economies of scale and diseconomies of space.

We focus on Japanese development after World War II, both domestically and in its relations with other national economies, and in comparison with other cases of rapid, systemically transformative economic ascent as the empirical base for building a model flexible enough to be applied to other countries, contemporaneously and at different historical moments in the development of the worldsystem. New Historical Materialism and Generative Sectors Our analysis of national economic development and economic ascent focuses on the emergence of hegemonic potential, rather than on its maturity and decline.

State Department, and the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, or 18 East Asia and the Global Economy MCI (MITI’s predecessor), and supported by the World Bank and some political leaders in Australia seeking to promote Australian development, resolved Japan’s postwar coal crisis. This new model gradually developed and expanded from the 1950s onward into a system of raw materials access based on long-term contracts and limited Japanese joint-venture investments. This model, in combination with Japanese domestic investment and innovation in steel and shipbuilding, progressively reduced the cost of Japan’s raw materials imports and guaranteed supply security, making Japan’s economy the world’s most competitive in a range of industries and driving Japan’s dramatic economic ascent.
