For Western economists and reporters, the main specific side of the post-war jap company international has been the keiretsu, or the insular company alliances between robust businesses. inside keiretsu teams, argue those observers, businesses preferentially exchange, lend funds, take and obtain technical and fiscal tips, and cement their ties via cross-shareholding agreements. within the fantasy of the Keiretsu, Yoshiro Miwa and J.

Western students in basic terms repatriated the legend to teach the culturally contingent nature of contemporary financial research. Laying waste to the thought of keiretsu, the authors debunk numerous similar “facts” besides: that jap companies retain particular preparations with a “main bank,” that companies are systematically poorly controlled, and that the japanese executive guided post-war progress. In demolishing those long-held assumptions, they provide one of many few trustworthy chronicles of the realities of jap enterprise. (20060313)
