Hayato Ikeda meeting Dodge (right) in 1948

Joseph Morrell Dodge (November 18, 1890 - December 2, 1964) was a chairman of the Detroit Bank, now Comerica, and later served as an economic advisor for postwar economic stabilization programs in Germany and Japan.

Dodge formed economic reconstruction plans for West Germany after World War II, and implemented financial reforms in 1948. He later moved to Japan as a special ambassador in December 1948, and drafted another economic stabilization plan, widely known as the Dodge Line. It was based on the nine principles of economic stabilization that were announced in Washington, DC in December 1948.

From 1953 to 1954 he was President Dwight D. Eisenhower's Director of the Bureau of the Budget.
