The prospects for industrial cooperation between the United States and Japan

Beechler, Schon; Ranis, Sheri

As part of an extensive research project on the competitiveness of US and Japanese firms in three key industries (automobiles, semiconductors and pharmaceuticals) the research team undertook an examination of what some consider to be the inverse of competition, the possibilities for cooperation between the US and Japanese industries and firms. The series of questions that we asked was as follows: is there room for cooperation between US and Japanese companies and/or industries to further the cause of fair competition? Can the energy that is currently being put into breaking down barriers be usefully turned to building bridges?
