Assume the Japanese industry started in 1955 with production of 100,000 cars per year and an initial cost of 2,000 and that production grew 50% per year for the next five years and then 25% per year for the next ten years. If Japanese relative costs compared to the US dropped 20% for each doubling of accumulated experience, in which year would Japanese costs equal US costs if the US cost per car in 1955 was $1500? Given a real discount rate on Japanese government bonds of 6% during this period, by 1970 was the cost to Japan of protecting this industry recovered due to its improved long run productivity compared to having imported cars from the US?
