Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich BWL - Bank, Börse, Versicherung, Note: 1,3, Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Berlin (BWL/Banken), Veranstaltung: BBL 2 - Banking Systems and Structures, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Mit den Worten “’I don’t see any reasons for the crisis develop further’” beurteilte IWF Direktor Michel Camdessus im März 1997 die Lage der japanischen Wirtschaft. Dass er mit seiner Aussage einem klaren Trugschluss unterlief, ist heutzutage bekannt. Insbesondere die japanischen Banken haben die schwerste Krise seit ihrem Bestehen zu meistern. In unser Hausarbeit erörtern wir zunächst die wirtschaftlichen Zusammenhänge, die maßgeblich an der Schieflage der Banken mitgewirkt haben. Dabei legen wir besonderes Augenmerk auf die Entwicklung der allgemeinen Wirtschaft sowie der Entwicklung an den Kapital- und Immobilienmärkten. Im zweiten Teil werden die spezifischen Problemfelder japanischer Banken genau analysiert. Dabei gehen wir vor allem auf Kreditvergabekriterien, den Umgang mit kritischen Kreditengagements, die Kapitalmarktverflechtung und auf die für Japan typische Ertragssituation ein. Wir möchten jedoch nicht nur die Ursachen reflektieren, sondern auch interessante Lösungsansätze zur Krisenbewältigung darstellen. Einen abschließenden Ausblick auf die Zukunft japanischer Kreditinstitute legen wir im letzten Teil unserer Arbeit dar.

The Essence of Japanese Cuisine

An Essay on Food and Culture

"It was a most exquisite repast, a veritable feast of the senses." Such is the fond memory of Michael Ashkenazi and Jeanne Jacob of a late summer meal in Japan which in every taste, texture, and aesthetic detail signaled the turning of the season. Vividly describing this and countless other fine meals, The Essence of Japanese Cuisine seats the reader at a table rich in culinary tradition. From menu arrangement to cooking techniques, course selection to entertainment styles, The Essence of Japanese Cuisine studies the Japanese meal and the historical, social, and economic principles that underpin Japanese food culture. Drawing from extensive fieldwork, surveys, and sources ranging from contemporary shop advertisements to classical writings and paintings, Ashkenazi and Jacob analyze how meals are structured, where food is prepared, where it is consumed, and what rituals and cultural rules define the art of the Japanese food event. Their personal experiences as diners serve as sensory tools for examining Japanese cuisine and its place in Japanese society, and they draw as well on Japanese and other culinary studies from such writers as Goody, Harris, Brillat-Savarin, Fisher, Ishige, and Mennell. The book concludes by assessing some of the lessons that can be learned from the Japanese dining experience, especially as Japanese cuisine takes its place among world foods.

These essays, by thirteen specialists from Japan and the United States, provide a comprehensive view of the Japanese empire from its establishment in 1895 to its liquidation in 1945. They offer a variety of perspectives on subjects previously neglected by historians: the origin and evolution of the formal empire (which comprised Taiwan, Korea, Karafuto. the Kwantung Leased Territory, and the South Seas Mandated Islands), the institutions and policies by which it was governed, and the economic dynamics that impelled it. Seeking neither to justify the empire nor to condemn it, the contributors place it in the framework of Japanese history and in the context of colonialism as a global phenomenon. Contributors are Ching-chih Chen. Edward I-te Chen, Bruce Cumings, Peter Duus, Lewis H. Gann, Samuel Pao-San Ho, Marius B. Jansen, Mizoguchi Toshiyuki, Ramon H. Myers, Mark R. Peattie, Michael E. Robinson, E. Patricia Tsurumi. Yamada Saburō, Yamamoto Yūzoō.

"In addition to highlighting the human benefits of built environments which relate to particular place, time and being, many of the Japanese buildings examined illustrate practical strategies for revealing these universal parameters which are equally applicable beyond Japan. It is suggested that wider use of some of these approaches could not only help to sustain both environmental and cultural identities against the homogenising effects of globalisation, but also has the potential to heighten our appreciation of the peculiar condition of being here now."--BOOK JACKET.
