Show Me the Money:
Japan's Most Profitable Companies of the 2000s
Ulrike Schaede presents her research analyzing the management practices of the most profitable manufacturing companies in Japan, showing how they differ from our stereotypical view of “the Japanese firm.”
From the working paper "Show Me the Money"
"The most interesting and profitable Japanese companies are no longer those that mass‐produce highquality
consumer end products. In their stead, leadership in technology and success in terms of profitability have shifted to companies that excel in input components and materials, but many of these companies are unknown in the West."
