Japanese economy used to be the first place in the world, but now it was reducing all the time. Japanese enterprise also lose their fomer attitude, what's the point? The compare masters and economic experts write this book to analys the deep meaning of the problem. I think the officers and the enterprisers should read this book. This new book also make a problem clear, that's why Japanese do exellent job in output, but terrible in its country.Porter tell us there two parts in Japanese economy:oneis the competive output enterprise, the other one is the uneffective old civil economy, including the sales,hospitals,energy,transpotation,etc. Westerners thought the Japan was strong and do everything profitable, like the cars,vidieos,games,cameras and intruments,etc. These fields improve Japanese economy and make a lot of money, this is the saying: first Japan.
