 It used to be said that Japan's business community, bureaucracy and politicians formed an iron triangle that was a key factor in the country's post-war industrial success. But a stand-off between the Keidanren, Japan's powerful business lobby, and regulators over whether listed companies should be required to appoint outside directors has exposed cracks in the foundations of the Japanese economic edifice.
May 29 Toyota, Nissan gear down (Japan Times)

May 28 High demand in Japan imperils U.S. Prius (CNET)
 Booming Japanese demand for the new-generation Prius could mean fewer U.S. deliveries of the popular hybrid vehicle when it goes on sale next month.

May 27 Worry, but no panic as Japanese brace for GM's fate (Reuters)
 As General Motors Corp creeps toward bankruptcy, Japanese auto executives have grown less worried about the turmoil in the supply chain and dealer channels the demise of the No. 1 U.S. car maker would cause. Just six months ago, the prospect of a Chapter 11 filing in Detroit had many rival automakers quaking in their boots on fears it would drag crucial parts makers into bankruptcy and further damage a battered U.S. economy.
May 27 Broadband goes big in Japan (BBC)
 Just a few years ago Japan was burdened with some of the most expensive broadband on the planet. Clumsy and overpriced, these first ventures into cyberspace shaped the way the country developed its broadband infrastructure, focusing instead on a 3G mobile internet network. Seeing the country fall behind dramatically in terms of fixed Internet use the government decided to act: the end result was a seriously fast fibre-based FTTH 1Gbps (gigabits per second) (fibre-to-the-home) network at one of the lowest price-per-megabits anywhere.

Services available with such phones allow users to do anything from acquiring discount coupons just by holding the handset over a card reader at shops to bringing up a map on their cell phone screen that guides them to their destination.

May 26 Nikon to cut 1,000 jobs (AFP)
