The Japanese firm : the sources of competitive strength by Masahiko Aoki( Book )

43 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 952 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Masahiko Aoki and Ronald Dore have edited an authoritative account of the Japanese firm and its sources of success, including contributions from some of the best, and best known, scholars in the field. The book represents an attempt to explain and understand aspects of the firm in the Japanese economic system, and to explain the corporate success of Japan. It is interdisciplinary in approach, containing both theoretical and empirical work, and has contributions from the fields of labour economics, comparative institutional analysis, information economics, finance, organization theory, economic history, political science, and sociology. Chapters range from contemporary descriptions - of training (in overseas subsidaries as well as in Japan), of R & D structures, of product development practices, of finance and corporate governance, of trading relations, especially between small and large firms - to an historical overview of the evolution of Japanese management in the wartime planned economy. The book also situates Japan in the literature of economic analysis and in the on-going debate about trade-offs between equality and efficiency. It is held together by a strong introductory chapter by the editors. But is the Japanese system of management - characterised by lifetime employment, emphasis on the long-term, slow consensual decision making, heavy investments in training, R & D, and quality, close inter-enterprise ties, and short rations for shareholders - all in crisis and about to change fundamentally, as the contemporary media would have us believe? This book will enable the reader to decide just how solid the foundations of the Japanese enterprise system are, and to identify the rationale which lies behind it
Land reform in Japan by Ronald Dore( Book )

55 editions published between 1959 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 897 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The land reform carried out in Japan during the period of American Occupation is often spoken of as one of the most successful of the post-war reforms. It was certainly one of the most thorough going redistributions of land which the world has seen. A third of the total area of arable land changed hands, and nearly a third of the total population of the country was affected. Socially, the land reform accelerated the decay in feudal institutions, rendering the lot of the Japanese farmer considerably better than it once was. First published in 1984, this title is part of the Bloomsbury Academic

Stock market capitalism : welfare capitalism : Japan and Germany versus the Anglo-Saxons by Ronald Dore( Book )

38 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a book about Washington Consensus capitalism and the controversies its encroachment causes in Japan and Germany. Many people in both those countries share the assumptions dominant today in Britain and America - that managers should be intent solely on creating shareholder value and that shareholders' financial logic alone should determine who buys what company on the stock exchange. That way efficiency (and hence global welfare) will be maximized." "The Japanese and German advocates of full-bloodied market capitalism are not having it all their own way, however. In both countries there are articulate defenders of what they consider to be a better way of life, informed by a more humane, more social-solidary, set of values." "Dore traces the fascinating debates which ensue on corporate governance, on worker rights, on supplier relations, on cartels and anti-trust, on pensions and welfare. He also analyses actual changes in economic behaviour - an essential means of sorting out a lot of the muddle and double-talk not just in the internal debates themselves, but even more in the foreign reporting of them." "These accounts of the battle for the national soul in Japan and Germany constitute one of the finest contributions to the 'diversity of capitalism' debate. Dore's account should be read by anyone who is interested to know whether, for all the talk of globalization, that diversity is going to survive."--Jacket
Flexible rigidities : industrial policy and structural adjustment in the Japanese economy, 1970-80 by Ronald Dore( Book )

35 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Ronald Dore examines how, despite the Japanese 'flagrantly flouting all received principles of capitalist rationality', they are able to adjust so successfully to the challenge of shifting world economic conditions. First published in 1986, this title is part of the Bloomsbury Academic Collections series
The diploma disease : education, qualification, and development by Ronald Dore( Book )

29 editions published between 1975 and 2000 in English and held by 735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aims and motives of schooling are changing, and it is becoming more and more a ritualized process of qualification-earning. The underlying causes of this change are traced through the education histories of Britain, Japan, Sri Lanka, and Kenya. It is illustrated that the competitve scramble for scarce modern jobs has created a "backwash effect" on the quality of education in Third World countries. The solutions are surveyed as they have been effected in the systems of Tanzania, Cuba, Sri Lanka, and China to bring the schools back to their task of educating. (Editor/MSE)
The Japanese social structure : its evolution in the modern century by Tadashi Fukutake( Book )

National diversity and global capitalism( Book )

13 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How does globalization change national economies and politics? Are rising levels of trade, capital flows, new communication technologies, and deregulation forcing all societies to converge toward the same structures of production and distribution? Suzanne Berger and Ronald Dore have brought together a distinguished group of experts to consider how the international economy shapes and transforms domestic structures. Drawing from experience in the United States, Europe, and Asia, the contributors ask whether competition, imitation, diffusion of best practice, trade, and financial flows are reducing national diversities. The authors seek to understand whether the sources of national political autonomy are undermined by changes in the international system. Can distinctive varieties of capitalism that incorporate unique and valued institutions for achieving social welfare survive in a global economy?
