Description - Japan: Restless Competitor by Malcolm Trevor
This is a major and controversial study that examines Japan's 'economic nationalism' which forms the basis of central government policy, i.e. the politico-economic system in which business and politics are inseparable and which impacts on all aspects of Japan's relationships with the outside world. Given that most of the rest of the advanced industrialized world is governed and informed by a free-market/private enterprise culture ('Anglo-Saxon capitalism'), the outcome inevitably means that Japan continues to control the agenda. 'As a member of the European Parliament from 1979-99, and as Rapporteur for the Parliament for most of that period on trade and economic relations between the EU and Japan, I warmly recommend this book which is a truly remarkable piece of work, reflecting as it does the personal experience of Dr Trevor, both in Europe and Japan, and his skilful comparison of the two systems which are not readily compatible.' - from the Foreword by James Moorhouse, MEP
