ABSTRACT
This article focuses on understanding the business practices carried out in Japan. Understanding Japan is no longer an elective for managers in other countries. Japan is the holder of some impressive world titles: the fastest-growing investor, the premier banker, the largest donor of aid, and in terms of national net worth, the richest country. Despite its new image of high-tech prowess, Japan today recalls the U.S. of the 1950s in some aspects of life. But change is in the wind. Companies are starting to hire women on a basis of equality with men. Consumers are finding their voice, angered by a new sales tax, among other grievances.
