'Insightful.' -Financial Adviser'Interesting insights... Dore has written a fascinating book on an important subject. There are so many middle-of-the-road books on the assumed merits of the Anglo-American model that it is indeed welcome, necessary and timely to see the other case made. The book deserves many readers, and they will be rewarded by highly stimulating and thought-provoking ideas and interpretations... were it not for his commitment and involvement, we might have missed some of the most remarkable scholarship on Japan in recent decades.' -Social Science Japan Journal'Professor Dore has written a thoughtful and provocative book on how global capitalism may evolve. Whether or not you agree with him - and many economists and CEOs will not - if you are interested in the future of the world economy, you should read this book.' -Jeffrey E. Garten, Dean, Yale School of ManagementMany Japanese and Germans endorse the shareholder-first assumptions dominant today in Britain and America. Yet in both countries there are articulate defenders of what they consider to be a better, more social-solidary way of life. Dore traces the fascinating debates which ensue on corporate governance, on worker rights, on supplier relations, on cartels and anti-trust, on pensions and welfare. He also analyses actual changes in economic behaviour. These accounts of the battle for the national soul in Japan and Germany constitute one of the finest contributions to the 'diversity of capitalism' debate. Dore's account should be read by anyone who is interested to know whether, for all the talk of globalization, that diversity is going to survive.Whether or not you agree with him - and many economists and CEOs will not - if you are interested in the future of the world economy, you should read this book.
