Drucker on Asia is written in two parts (Times of Challenge & Time to Reinvent) which is the result of a dialogue between Peter Drucker and Isao Nakauchi on international themes.
Drucker On Asia is the result of extensive dialogue between two of the world's leading business figures, Peter F Drucker and Isao Nakauchi. Their dialogue considers the changes occuring in the economic world today and identifies the challenges that free markets and free enterprises now face with specific reference to China and Japan. * What do these economic changes mean for an individual country and its economy? * What do these changes mean to Japan? * What do these changes mean to society; the individual company; the individual professional and executive? These are the questions that Drucker and Nakauchi address in their brilliant insight into the future economic role of Asia.

Gives a brilliant insight into the future economic role of Asia.
The focus of attention on the Pacific Rim has been diffused recently by a faltering Japan, by the ascendancy of such countries as Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia, and by the prospect of a Hong Kong under Chinese control. Nonetheless, it is clear that Japan will continue to dominate economically. Those interested in the future prospects of Asia and disappointed by John Naisbitt's overgeneralized, readily apparent views in Megatrends Asia (1996) will be better served by this series of conversations between Drucker and the man sometimes called "the Sam Walton of Japan." Nakauchi is a maverick in his own country; he is the largest retailer in Japan and solved the problem of Japan's convoluted and costly distribution system by building his own trucking fleet. Based on exchanges that took place over a two-year period beginning in 1994, this "dialogue" between Drucker and Nakauchi looks at the role of China, the prospects of a "borderless world," and the impact of the "knowledge society."
