Japan as -anything but- number one by Jon Woronoff( Book )

Is Japan No. 1? Well, maybe it is if you only consider those sectors where it is particularly successful. But not if you add many others where its performance is mediocre or worse. Is Japan No. 1? Well, maybe it is if you ask the foreign "friends" who have made a career (and sometimes a fortune) as apologists of Japanese causes. But, if you ask the Japanese themselves, you will find that they are anything but satisfied. Is Japan No. 1? Well, maybe it is if you are taken in by the tatemae, i.e. the official version or how its admirers like to picture it. But it does not look so great once you perceive the honne, i.e. the realities of life in Japan. Is Japan No. 1? Well, maybe it is if you take what is best in Japan and contrast it to what is less good in foreign countries. But it does not compare so well if you mix the good with the bad in both places. No, the author does not think that Japan is a horrible place or that its leaders have made a complete mess of things. But, if you look closely, it is certainly not the extraordinary success it is frequently claimed to be. It is closer to the mean, with many serious problems that will only get worse if people foolishly assume it is No. 1

Few economic tools have attracted as much attention as industrial policy and "targeting," wielded most effectively by Japan to accelerate its economic rise. This book considers who targeted industries, how they were chosen and what techniques were used to support them. It also delves into the intriguing question of who ran the show: bureaucrats or businessmen? More than theory, it is essential to examine the practice of targeting. This is done generally and more specifically, with case studies of crucial exercises for steel, shipbuilding, computers, semiconductors, machine tools and many others. Even more interesting are sectors which are being targeted now: robotics, aerospace, artificial intelligence, and so on. While most targeting exercises were successful, some were failures and certain broader problems arose. They are less well known but merit careful attention. So does the impact of Japanese targeting on other countries, especially those whose domestic industries suffered or who wish to adopt certain targeting techniques to strengthen their own economies

"Jon Woronoff - an acknowledged authority in Japanese economy and society - provides insight into aspects of doing business in Japan, and advice on how to succeed in a very difficult market. The book follows the process from initial contact, to the first visit, to the creation of a fully-fledged operation in Japan. Emphasis is placed on how to break into the distribution system, set up a local company, acquire an existing company, recruit and manage Japanese personnel and co-operate or compete with Japanese companies. There are also tips on how to avoid common traps and pitfalls for the unwary investor."--Jacket
