Within the past 50 years, Japan’s economic relations with China have moved from that of warily watching the next move of the giant Communist nation to having China being the greatest recipient of Japan’s available foreign direct investment funds and becoming one of Japan’s most important customers for their export goods. With Japan’s success in manufacturing that has put to shame most of the rest of the industrialized world, they found themselves with an excess of wealth to put to use.

America’s discovery of Japanese cars was the first real indication that American manufacturing would have to change in order to keep up, but it was discovered that accomplishing that change involved far more than just doing things differently than in the past. It was also necessary for management attitudes to change as well. Today, the principles described by Kurt Lewin in the 1940s are as true as they were then, and management at the most successful of companies has discovered that lasting and beneficial change occurs when management sets the stage, but employees lead the implementation of change.

Interest Rate Policy Of The Bank of Japan : 12 pages in length. Until the 1980’s, the Bank of Japan had an active role in implementing government-directed fiscal policy, but as the economy stabilized and seemed to be completely self-sustaining, regulatory influences were increasingly withdrawn. Today, the Bank of Japan is charged mainly with establishing and maintaining interest rates. In that respect, it is comparable to our Federal Reserve. Years of questionable business finance practices have been catching up to Japan faster than Japan can catch up to the consequences. The Bank of Japan’s role has been to keep interest rates artificially low in an attempt to aid commercial banks on the verge of failure, but those interest rates being at such low levels is having other and far-reaching implications for the Japanese economy. Bibliography lists 10 sources. Bankjap.wps

Bibliography lists 6 sources. Jpcrisi2.wps

Japan’s Banking Crisis / Fuji Bank : 8 pages in length. The Japanese banking system is too much like that of the US in the early 1930s, and years of questionable financing decisions have finally caught up with many of them.
