Japan’s new place in the world

Japan has irreversibly left a world of certitude in which the United States
guaranteed the security of the Archipelago, was the technological power to
overcome and welcomed Japanese products on its market. The strong
growth managed by a collusion between the bureaucracy, the big corporations
and the liberal democratic party guaranteed a regular increase of
living standards and social harmony.
Today the United States is defending its own industry… the Japanese way,
in particular by playing with its undervalued currency. China is reinforcing
its economic and military presence. Vested interests are stifling the collective
will. The citizens are expecting a more transparent political life and are
preoccupied with executive job security.
Japan’s democratic capitalism – an exception in Asia – is now compelled to
choose its place in the world and to adapt its state consequently. It will
either cling to its corporate state, conservative internally and aggressive
externally, or it will change into a new civic state which will act to boost
internal growth through a better quality of life and spread a model of
managed – but democratic – development in the Third world.
