The National Japan: Tarnished Miracle

The National Japan: Tarnished Miracle

Japan, the second most powerful economy in the world, now faces a growing financial crisis – bad loans, bankruptcies and a government debt that is one of the largest in the world. This program examines just how the Japanese miracle lost its lustre and the factors that will shape the country's future: a changing work ethic; a rapidly aging population; the economic importance of the changing role of women; shifting loyalties as employers can no longer guarantee lifelong job security and employees begin to value personal time.
