It's worth reading the whole piece, click on the link above for the article.
I'm nitpicking, but in his discussion of how many Japanese industrial companies are floundering (they're not all doing well like Toyota), he says Sony is losing out to Microsoft in the video game race, but the data don't agree, Sony has far outsold Microsoft (Playstation 2 vs. Xbox).
