Non-Japanese citizens who competed with Japanese-Americans in the business place for wages were fervent supporters of the removal procedures. Quickly, Anti-Japanese sentiment became pervasive among even those who did not stand to profit instantaneously from the confiscation of property, the removal of business and labor competition2. The hatred for Japanese-Americans would eventually no longer be
It shows to us that the simple things should be appreciated, for life is short and can be lost easily. This also displays the hospital’s interest in money rather than the patients’ treatment, which may be applicable in companies, institutions, or organizations in reality. There would be no change if someone did not care enough to find a way. Most of all, it presents to us that the human spirit is the one that conquers. The aspiring neurologists and doctors will like this film, inspiring them to really work hard.
In Goodsell’s “A Case for Bureaucracy” Goodsell makes several valid points about the argument for and against Bureaucracy. Before reading I too would have assumed bureaucracy is a waste of time and that most bureaucrats are just lazy, rude and tend to hate their job. But now I've realized that Bureaucracy does succeed. People, Americans, tend to expect bureaucrats to be able to do anything. Even when the tasks seems impossible they expect the problem to be solved immediately which ultimately sets the bureaucrats up for failure from the beginning.
However, that lack of communication is the result of simply different cultures and lifestyles, not intelligence. The Bill Murray character especially had a tendency to appear to think that he was superior or smarter than all the Japanese because they did not speak fluent English. Well, he could not understand what they were saying either, so what does that make him? The photographer and others that he crossed paths with were obviously very talented and successful at their jobs if they were filming a huge movie star, they simply did not have any prior need to learn how to speak perfect English. I do, however, think the situation would have been similar if the roles were reversed and it was an all English speaking crew filming a Japanese man, or any other nationalities with different languages.
Mark Twain once said, “The very ink with which history is written is merely fluid prejudice.” Even as we as a globalized society have improved greatly, prejudice appears far too often and is expressed everywhere even in today’s world. During World War 2, prejudice was peaking in society. In Farewell to Manzanar by Jeanne Wakatuski Houston and James D. Houston, the main theme is that silent prejudice hurts the most. Wakatsuki avoids portraying open racism and prejudice in the book in order to examine he subtle and often unspoken prejudices that occur everyday life, which are often the most hurtful. Overt hatred for which the Japanese Americans have prepared themselves for never materializes.
It seems like Koreans are mostly long-term oriented because they attribute their failures to their own lack of effort, and they are always trying to adapt to the situation. The fast economic growth of the country after the Japanese war also indicates long-term orientation. Indulgence versus restraint. People’s faces in the public places in Korea are very similar to the faces of Russian people – they are always very serious and thoughtful, seldom smiling. It can be interpreted as the generally low happiness of people.
Hateful speech is a constant threat to a vast majority of people, only made easier by today’s technology. So, when we know someone is being belittled by another’s hurtful words, why is it that, sometimes, we do nothing? Do we feel it is not our problem? Do we feel we should not get involved? Any of these are okay enough excuses, but not good enough reasons.
These are the key aspects that can affect the organisation and management structure of a firm, all these interpersonal communication, management attitude, and social norms have yet been taken into consideration for Porter’s diamond framework. Moreover, Porter’s diamond framework does not cover how national culture will then affect the competitiveness in the national business system (Bosch & Man, 1997). Porter also mentioned that in firm structure and strategy, Japan business system prefers to maintain long-term relationship with their suppliers in the automobile industry is not based on their cultural perspective but rather it is due to pressure under those economic circumstances. This sentence is proven wrong by Whitley (1991), Japanese culture is well known for close connection and long-term employment in order to make their business system unique. Businesses in Japan have strong bonding with their partners to create strategies in reducing uncertainties, likewise these cultural factors is the action that leads to keiretsu being formed in Japan business system (Earley & Singh,
Job security is low as the companies start letting go if the company runs in trouble. Japanese employees have trust and acceptance factors of management decisions when it is concerned with application of practices and policies Americans do not work at high level capacity and do not assist in greater extent. Managerial Culture The managerial culture of USA can be described as individualistic. The managers are accountable for all the decisions that are taken within their area of responsibility. The managers more likely disregard the subordinate’s opinion as compared to other cultures.
However; it did quite the opposite, instead it brought more conflict and uneasiness to the people. While many disagree with Machiavelli’s points about what makes a good leader, I find them favorable. While leaders during this time were expected to please everyone, Machiavelli makes the point that it is not possible to do so. One argument he makes is “A man who wishes to make a profession of goodness in everything must necessarily
