Japan and Singapore in the World Economy - Japan's Economic Advance into Singapore 1870-1965 (Hardcover): Hitoshi... Japan and Singapore in the World Economy - Japan's Economic Advance into Singapore 1870-1965 (Hardcover)
Hitoshi Hirakawa, Hiroshi Shimizu
R3,099 Discovery Miles 30 990 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This work examines Japans economic activities in Singapore from 1870 to 1965. Drawing upon a range of published and unpublished sources, the authors shed light on issues such as: prostitution; foreign trade by Kobe's overseas Chinese; fishermen in the inter-war period; Japanese economic activities during the Pacific War; Japanese involvement in Singapore's post-war industrialization plan; the Lee Kuan Yew regime's policy towards Japan; and the 1960s Japanese investment boom. The book challenges commonly-held views on Japan's economic advance into Southeast Asia in general, and Singapore in particular.

The 17th International Symposium on Acoustical Imaging was held at Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan, during May 31-June 2, 1988. The symposium was organized by the ultrasonics research group of Tohoku University and the IEEE ijFFC Society, Tokyo Chapter. Of the 128 papers submitted, 88 were presented during the symposium, which comprised 144 researchers from 13 countries. This volume contains 81 papers as the record of the symposium and is clas sified into the following sections: (1) Acoustic Microscopy and its Applications; (2) Non-Destructive Evaluation; (3) Signal Processing of Images; (4) Acoustic Measurements and Physical Acoustics; (5) Medical Ultrasonic Diagnostics; (6) Acoustic Sensors; (7) Acoustic Holography and Tomography; (8) Seismic Exploration; and (9) Imaging Instrumentation and Other Techniques. A number of the papers submitted were associated with medical ultrasonic diagnostics and acoustic microscopy, reflecting a major activity in acousti cal imaging at Tohoku University. Accordingly, two invited talks were focused on this area: acoustic microscopy by Dr. G. A. D. Briggs of the University of Oxford and medical ultrasonics by Prof. M. Tanaka of Tohoku University. In light of the history of research in this field at our university, we are delighted to have had the opportunity to host the 17th symposium."

General Purpose Technology, Spin-Out, and Innovation - Technological Development of Laser Diodes in the United States and Japan... General Purpose Technology, Spin-Out, and Innovation - Technological Development of Laser Diodes in the United States and Japan (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2019)

This book focuses on exploring the relationship between spin-outs from incumbents and the patterns of innovation in general purpose technology. Do spin-outs really promote innovation? What happens if star scientists leave the incumbents and establish a startup to target untapped markets? Entrepreneurial spin-outs have been recognized as an engine of innovation. General purpose technology, such as the steam engine in the Industrial Revolution, has been considered an engine of growth. This book provides new perspectives on how entrepreneurial spin-outs shape the patterns of innovation in general purpose technology by integrating theoretical findings in industrial organizations and includes innovation studies and detailed evidence from a longitudinal case study. Concretely, by longitudinally exploring the technological development of laser diodes in the USA and Japan, this study examines how the existence or absence of an entrepreneurial strategic choice for spin-outs influences the patterns of subsequent technological development. The longitudinal analysis in this book shows that spin-outs could hinder the subsequent development of existing technology when that technology is still at a nascent level, because the cumulative effects of technological development could disappear if research and development personnel leave their parent firms in order to target different sub-markets. The findings of this book show that institutional settings designed to promote spin-outs do not necessarily promote innovation. The book offers novel theoretical insights into the relationship between institutions promoting spin-outs and the developments of general purpose technology.

Japanese Firms in Contemporary Singapore (Paperback): Hiroshi Shimizu Japanese Firms in Contemporary Singapore (Paperback)
Hiroshi Shimizu
R492 Discovery Miles 4 920 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This pioneering work discusses the role of Japan in the economic development of Singapore since 1965 by looking at the nature and extent of the value-added activities of Japanese multi-national corporations in the manufacturing, construction, and retailing sectors. Japan's economic presence and influence have been very strong in Singapore in the past few decades. Currently, the city state is one of the major recipients of Japanese foreign direct investment in Asia, and is also a very important overseas customer for Japanese manufacturing and construction firms. Nevertheless, there is no major academic work on Japanese economic activities in the city state, even though there are large numbers of works on the economic development of Singapore.Based on primary and secondary sources in English and Japanese, Hiroshi Shimizu examines the nature and extent of the value-added activities of Japanese multi-national corporations in the manufacturing, construction and retail sectors, drawing on case studies of leading companies such as Minebea, the Pokka Corporation, Kikkoman, Bridgestone, and Isetan. The author uses this information to analyze Japanese Foreign Direct Investment in Singapore as part of an Asian or global strategy, and to explore competition and co-operation between Japanese MNCs and local firms. He also evaluates various factors involved in the decline of Japan and the rise of China in the economic and other areas in Singapore, especially since the late 1990s.
