Japan Inc. is bleeding and the bandages are sopping wet and dripping. Between electricity shortages, a soaring yen, and the ascendance of China and South Korea, the wheels are having trouble turning domestically. The big industrial groups are silently considering how to magically transfer their interests to regions and countries which will keep them in the profitability column, while at the same time squelching fears in Japan that Japan’s manufacturing base is irreversibly hollowing out and jobs irretrievably being lost to foreign subsidiaries. It’s a tough sell and balancing act.
