Japan's economic invasion of the world slowed to a slow crawl in the late 1980s and early 1990s because the real estate and financial industries copied the American practices that crashed the U.S. economy. And then came China, overtaking the Japanese in 2010 to become the world's second largest economy.
This double-whammy resulted in the Japanese coming up with a new hybrid form of management in an effort to remain a world-class economic power. This book identifies and explains the new Japanese way of doing business...which has some lessons for the U.S. and other counries in both Asia and the West.
