Synopsis

REIMAGINING JAPAN The Quest for a Future That Works by Brian Salsberg

In the aftermath of the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis of March 2011, Japan has become a bigger part of the world's consciousness than it has been for years. But Japan is also grappling with other problems that, over the long run, pose a much greater challenge to its national well-being than the devastation in Tohuku. How can the country compete with a rising China? Cope with a fast-aging society? Deal with its enormous debt? Rediscover its entrepreneurial verve? Regain its position as a leader in technology and innovation? In Reimagining Japan,McKinsey & Company, the world's top management consulting firm, asked more than 80 global leaders and experts to consider these questions. In essays brimming wth insight, affection and occasional humour, the authors offer their assessments of Japan's past, present and - most important - future. What sets Reimagining Japan apart is the breadth and diversity of its contributors. They range from Fortune 500 CEO's to acclaimed writers (including three Pulitzer Prize winners) to a star videogame creator, a football coach, a school principal and a manga artist. There has not been such a comprehensive book about Japan in the past generation - and perhaps ever.

About the Author

Contributors to this volume include some of the world's most brilliant thinkers from fields as diverse as business, politics, academia, science and technology, journalism and art and design. Authors have been selected for their promience, but also for their knowledge of Japan and distinctiveness of their point of view. Many essays seek to identify, assess and prioritize Japan's major challenges for the next decade, while also suggesting solutions. But the collection also includes more literary, reflective essays, intended to provoke discussion and new ideas. This is a rare blend of truly global commentary and insight unlike anything ever published about Japan.Copyright (c) 2011 McKinsey & Company
