The course examines issues such as the interconnection between politics and economics, globalization, multinational corporations, tariffs, free trade agreements and the World Trade Organization, economic development, world financial market crisis, East Asian socioeconomic issues, the Japanese economy, the creation of wealth, and rising economic inequality. All of these issues are essential for an understanding of life in the 21st century, and they are all particularly salient in Japan and the United States of America. The course will also compare marketing and management paradigms in both countries, as well as a description of Japanese lean manufacture production models. (Offered every year).
