In America at Risk: The Crisis of Hope, Trust, and Caring, Robert Perrucci and Carolyn C. Perrucci identify the broad economic and technological changes that have led to the loss of high wage jobs, declining opportunity, and increased income and wealth inequality. These changes have altered the way that Americans think about themselves, their future, and the lives of their children and neighbors. Focusing on the erosion of trust, hope, and caring between and among Americans and their social institutions, the authors confront the challenge by proposing policies that will build hope (through job

Japanese auto transplants in the heartland : corporatism and community by Robert Perrucci( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2017 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the 1980s six Japanese automobile assembly plants were built in six midwestern states which put up over a billion dollars in incentives to attract the transplants. In turn, the Japanese corporate firms involved in these arrangements invested seven billion dollars to build the plants. Hundreds of automobile supplier firms have come to the region thereby creating a formidable Japanese auto industry that promises jobs and economic growth for many communities." "This book examines the promise of a new form of government-business partnership, which is called corporatism. It also examines the tensions and conflicts between the corporatist project and the host communities in which the transplants reside. The interplay of economy and society is revealed through Perrucci's study of the actions of Japanese corporations, American politicians, local business elites, labor unions, newspapers, and numerous community groups that support or oppose transplants." "Among the questions that Perrucci examines in his new book are: How did states compete for the transplants? What was the role of local newspapers in selling the idea of providing incentives for the transplants? How were workers selected to become part of the new team in the transplants? How did the Japanese and local elites get the corporatist project integrated into the local culture?"--Jacket

Science under siege? : interest groups and the science wars by Leon E Trachtman( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The combative metaphor of 'science wars' has taken on a predominant position within the collective conscious, from being featured on the programs of scientific meetings to being splashed across the pages of leading national magazines and newspapers. Some in the scientific community perceive their profession to be under siege by members of the academic left, radical environmentalists, religious fundamentalists, eco-feminists, and others. This book, based on in-depth interviews with sixty members of groups with alleged 'anti-science' attitudes, examines how pervasive and uniform these critiques

Notes from Toyota-land : an American engineer in Japan by Darius Mehri( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1996, Darius Mehri traveled to Japan to work as a computer simulation engineer within the Toyota production system. Once there, he found a corporate experience far different from what he had expected. Notes from Toyota-land, based on a diary that Mehri kept during his three years at an upper-level Toyota group company, provides a unique insider's perspective on daily work life in Japan and charts his transformation from a wide-eyed engineer eager to be part of the "Japanese Miracle" to a social critic, troubled by Japanese corporate practices.Mehri documents the sophisticated "culture of rules" and organizational structure that combine to create a profound control over workers. The work group is cynically used to encourage employees to work harder and harder, he found, and his other discoveries confirmed his doubts about the working conditions under the Japanese Miracle. For example, he learned that male employees treated their female counterparts as short-term employees, cheap labor, and potential wives. Mehri also describes a surprisingly unhealthy work environment, a high rate of injuries due to inadequate training, fast line speeds, crowded factories, racism, and lack of team support. And in conversations with his colleagues, he uncovered a culture of intimidation, subservience, and vexed relationships with many aspects of their work and surroundings. As both an engaging memoir of cross-cultural misunderstanding and a primer on Japanese business and industrial practices, Notes from Toyota-land will be a revelation to everyone who believes that Japanese business practices are an ideal against which to measure success
Plant closings : international context and social costs by Dena B Targ( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

PLANT CLOSED--A sign of the times? These two words have had profound meaning for workers in every factory and office across the country. Millions of workers who have already been displaced by closings have had to pick up the pieces of shattered lives and get on with the business of living. Those who are still working are faced with the insecurity of wondering whether they might find the gates closed some morning when they arrive at work. The number of plant closings and the threat of future closings have raised many questions.What has been happening to the American economy that has resulted in major companies closing their doors? What forces within the international and national political economies are converging to reshape the labor force, eliminating jobs in manufacturing and expanding employment in the lower wage, insecure manufacturing sector? What happens to displaced workers, their families, and the community in which they work?In Plant Closings, the authors examine the reasons plants close and the social, economic, and psychological consequences. A variety of causes are identified including capital flight, decreasing profit rates, and the pursuit of lower labor costs. Through the analysis of a case study the authors examine the changing health patterns, political attitudes, and financial stability of displaced workers. There is also discussion of the impact on the community at large and on the individual institutions within the community. Finally, the authors analyze legislation that addresses the human and social costs of unemployment.Carolyn C.
