The significance in business and economic history of Japan's startling rise in international competitiveness since the mid-1950s has not only given business academics much food for thought but has also served to increase the amount of English-language writing on modern Japan. Many researchers have sought to dissect the qeconomic miracleq, isolating key factors which range from the national character and qconsensusq to the favorable conjunction of market forces, from unique structural elements and government policy to a qfree rideq based on American support and free trade. This new book uses a comparative perspective to highlight the many components of this miracle. By looking at the key facets of international competitiveness in Japan and Britain, new light is shed on the secrets of Japanese growth while refining allegations of British qfailure.q There are two main contributions (one by a Japanese and the other by a British scholar) on the following key variables: the government-industry relationship; management structures; education and training; and finance. The book goes on to feature several new case studies of automobiles and electronics. These essays revise many established notions concerning the two countries. Differences in education/business links, for example, are not as pronounced as is often claimed, and the performance gap in financial services is now much narrower. This book will serve as a useful starting point for further research on the critical aspects of modern corporate behavior and global competitiveness.In 1968 Toyota Shatai also became responsible for making the Corona Mark II hardtop and the firma#39;s proportion of passenger car production consequently increased. ... In 1952, Toyoda Jidoshokki produced its first engine, the S-type engine for the Toyo Ace. In 1959 the S-type was replaced by the P-type, which underwent subsequent changes to become the 2P-type in 1961 and the 3P-type in 1967.
