9780070428591: Keiretsu: Inside the Hidden Japanese Conglomerates

Two Tokyo-based reporters delve inside Japanese big business to show Westerners the full picture -- and to explain precisely how "Japan Inc." has come to dominate global commerce in modern times.

Kenichi Miyashita and David Russell investigate their subject through the fascinating prism of the keiretsu -- Japan's government-sanctioned networks of banks, manufacturers, suppliers, and distributors. Do these syndicates have valuable lessons to teach us? Or do they deserve their rap as protectionist cartels? Or both? Only here will you discover the complete and unbiased truth. And only here will you find haunting, firsthand accounts by Japanese subcontractors of their service to the keiretsu -- a side of business rarely seen by Westerners.

"Our hard-nosed business leaders look like Dorothy wandering through Oz when it comes to dealing with Japan, " the authors say. If you do business in Japan or with Japanese firms -- or are simply curious about the country's rise and possible decline -- Keiretsu will provide an eye-opening, page-turning education.

Book Description McGraw-Hill Education - Europe, United States, 1995. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. 228 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Maverick capitalist Boone Pickens has denounced them as government-sponsored cartels. Chrysler s Lee lacocca has suggested forming our own little keiretsu system in the United States. But whether you regard Japan s mammoth corporate alliances as a menace to trade or a model for change, you probably don t understand how the keiretsu really operate. Here, at last, is the book that will open your eyes. Our hard-nosed business leaders look like Dorothy wandering through Oz when it comes to dealing with Japan, observes David Russell, an American business journalist based in Tokyo since 1982. In these pages, he and Japanese counterpart Kenichi Miyashita reveal the inner workings of the keiretsu. Their unbiased, readable investigation delivers a wealth of information about the system as a whole, its individual members, and the intricate web of relationships that links banks, manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, and the Japanese government. You ll gain insight into features that are common to most keiretsu, such as the main bank, stable shareholding, and seconded directors. You ll also examine concepts that have no American parallel, such as the general trading company. And you ll hear from Japanese subcontractors themselves about their experiences serving the keiretsu - an eye-opening look at life inside the pyramid. You ll learn all about the types of keiretsu and how they operate: . Horizontal keiretsu - the bank-centered Big Six: the Mitsui, Mitsubishi, Sumitomo, Fuyo, Sanwa, and Dai-Ichi Kangyo Bank Groups. Vertical keiretsu - the producers of cars (Toyota, Nissan, Honda) and electronics (Matsushita, Hitachi, Toshiba, Sony), and their captive subcontractors. Distributionkeiretsu - a subgroup of the vertical keiretsu that controls much of Japanese retailing, deciding what products will appear in stores and showrooms - and at what price. This is the first book to spell out not only the rules of the keiretsu, but the position of the many players within t. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780070428591
