Furthermore, it was essential that an appointment was made in order to address the Emperor, yet, Algren is introduced to the Imperial Lord on the same day that he arrived in Japan (Source 12). Therefore the film introduced further contradictions of historical truths. Another factual error can be noted in the protagonist of the film, Captain Nathan Algren. The inaccuracy in this instance is that Nathan Algren is a fictional character (Source 5). Therefore, by dubbing Nathan Algren The Last Samurai in the film, the director intentionally distorted history.
Japan and its Globalization For the recent years, globalization and Japan appear as two binary terms. While several nations take advantage of the benefits resulting from globalization, take for example China and its foreign direct investment (Yu, 2002), Japan views globalization more of a problem due to the compromising effects it caused to its national identity. The country formulated seemingly practical solutions to mitigate this pseudo-problem while continuing to beat foreign competitors in the world’s labor market. Japan made this possible through the aid of its highly-recognized key industries such as automobiles, consumer electronics, and computers. For the purpose of this paper, the key players in the globalization of Japan and the nations it has partnered with in its efforts to globalize as well as its outcome will be identified.
The Globe: The Paradox of Samsung’s Rise gives an insight into the company Samsung. The article discussed the firm specific advantages of Samsung and how their Japanese business model was the base of their company, but had to be adapted to transcend. The article begins with an introduction of the company, how it has grown from a small business to a multinational and how their firm specific advantage – their homogenous workforce – made them strong. Discussed is the paradox Samsung has faced, by having to turn away from what made them successful: their tightly integrated business system, and how they reinvented themselves perpetually. The rise of Lee Kun-Hee, the second chairman in Samsung’s history, is reviewed throughout the text.

For example, the high levels of technical skills in manufacturing, the building of global significant brands, the complex organizational coordination at high levels of efficiency, and the Japanese ability to engage workers in product improvement and quality assurance have all raised the standards for other countries in terms of structuring their business systems (Hagesawa & Noronha, 2009). All of the mentioned traits that the Japanese business system holds cannot be adequately understood without “extending the focus of analysis beyond the individual firm to the vertical keiretsu (business group)” in reference to Westney (1996). Having said that, one can understand that the complexity of the Japanese business system and its reliance on business groups rather than individual attributions. Also, the ‘good’ relationships between Japanese firms and their suppliers have helped the companies prosper notably more than other firms in different markets. Dyer & Ouchi (2002) ask why Japanese suppliers are more cooperative and willing to take risks than US suppliers.

Singapore faced many challenges and gone through a series of international and internal developments to shape it’s making of becoming a nation. Particularly, one crucial development comprises of the impact of Japanese Occupation years which happened from 1942 to 1945 where Japanese took over the city from British and made the multiracial population felt its fearful and rough presence. In “Dilemmas of Statehood in Southeast Asia” (Michael Leifer, 1972) a nation is defined as “the creation by government of a cohesive political community characterized by an abiding sense of identity and common consciousness.” Therefore, it raises questions on whether the impact of Japanese Occupation years initiated a wide social and political transformation that helps in creating a sense of national identity and shaping a common awareness among the community. Thus, I strongly disagree that Japanese Occupation years were no relevance in the making of Singapore nation as it is definitely one significant moment defining the history of Singapore that contributed in nation building. Ever since British surrendered Singapore to Japanese on 15th February, European images of being invincible and superior were tarnished and along with the realization that British could
