Example text

However, the employees look back on the good things about Japanese management and reminisce about its merits, although they accept at the same time that it is now inevitably about to change dramatically, as it no longer suits the present era. H: If they can’t let go of the co-operative body (this is H’s word to describe the Japanese company as a co-operation of people all working together), then it must be because there’s merit in it. There were merits in the system—there were. Because Japanese companies were co-operative bodies the Japanese economy grew until the 1990s and in that period of growth the corporation was exactly suited to the expansion of the economy.

Foreign companies are making inroads into the Japanese market. Yet nobody can foresee the extent to which a domestic business such as life insurance will be affected by foreign companies. There is therefore a great sense of uncertainty and pessimism. THE CURRENT SITUATION 41 J: All the Japanese life insurance companies only have enough leeway to see what is directly under their feet. The influence of the domestic factors is so large that they don’t have the leeway to look at overseas factors. But even though they are life insurance companies, they are still financial institutions: from now on the convoy system has disappeared and they have to compete with other financial institutions such as banks and other security companies, and they also have to compete with overseas companies.

The influence of the domestic factors is so large that they don’t have the leeway to look at overseas factors. But even though they are life insurance companies, they are still financial institutions: from now on the convoy system has disappeared and they have to compete with other financial institutions such as banks and other security companies, and they also have to compete with overseas companies. If they really understood how large that impact is going to be then they have to be looking at those factors (Mata ta ni me ga iku hazu desu yo ne).
