Keiretsu Economy--New Economy?: Japan's Multinational Enterprises from a Postmodern Perspective
By Rainer Kensy

This book combines a theoretical study of Japan's economic structures and multinational enterprises with an analysis of the contemporary multinational enterprise. Kensy assesses the value of the post-modern approach to understanding the New Economy, as well as Japanese society and culture. He analyses Japan's economic structure, interpreting its methods, strategies, and results in a postmodern context and surveys socio-economic development in Japan since the beginning of Westernization. He examines Japanese models for the transformation of society in the future, with particular reference to the Keiretzu.

Keiretzu Economy, New Economy: Japan's Multinational Enterpr
By A Customer
Interesting reading. Timely. Though the first part is too academic and lofty, the conclusions of the second part(Japan: a success or not) is quite stimulating. This is very different reading from the usual Porter-like books of the academic Japan-bashing. And it is a non-US biased view. Induces to think the usual surface arguments about why Japan is doomed and dead. Quite creative in arguing for a Japanese pole-position in the next wave of the "New Economy" after the US craze is now anticlimaxing. Dr. Kensy significantly contributes in an unorthodox way to the ongoing debate on Japan and on the shape of the "Next Economy".
