Exit and Voice

Recommended book: Race for The Exits, Leonard Schoppa: "The system worked so long as Japan was kept in its postwar homeostasis, its economy relatively closed to the world, its firms restricted in their exit options and women pushed into and confined to household roles. It could not survive the transition to a globalized economy in which success depended more on openness." -- Tobias Harris

Interesting book review from Tobias Harris about some of the economic and social problems here in Japan. The ramifications from "exit and voice" -- the ability to dump a bad system or change it from the inside -- seems so very obvious to me living here. So much for closed systems. They die as a result of isolation. I`ll have to read this book.
