NOTE: This is a rather long but fascinating paper on how Japan Inc. functions. For a former free-trader like myself, it has shaken some of my beliefs to the very core. It will open your eyes a little, it will disturb you, and it will quite possibly lead you to ask some serious questions about the future of the United States of America as a world-leader. Reading this, IMHO, is well worth the effort.
The level of detail and the overall gist is documented in many well-known, albeit difficult to read, books. The author's prime service to us is the distillation of this information into a (relatively) brief synopsis.

I didn't know where to put this information... But I guess this is the best conference to put it on. Following are a 2 part article I found on alt.bbs.inter. I must admit it impressed me quite a bit.
I highly recomend that everyone reads this and consider it next time you go and buy a Japanese product.
This is written by a American student that went to do research about marketing in Japan...from an American's point of view....
Before you go and think...well this article is only for the US... read it all... There is a section about the British economy at the end...
A few people about 3 replied to it and attacked the writer for being a bit to direct and disagreed with him.
