Examines the growing economic tensions between the United States and Japan.
Japan's rise to economic prominence led to growing tensions between the United States and their Asian ally, with many in the U.S. believing that Japan's success had come at the expense of the U.S. As Japanese competition increased, Japan bashing became a popular pastime in the U.S., resulting in massive "buy American" campaigns from manufacturers, particularly in the car industry. Aware of the resentment their success had generated, the Japanese launched their own promotional campaigns, further exacerbating the situation. Yet as rhetoric continued to grow more heated on both sides of the pacific, what began as an economic dispute threatened to sour diplomatic and military relations between the two countries. This episode examines the roots of the trade dispute between the United States and Japan – are they cultural, political, or purely economic? Featuring former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Donald McHenry, Former National Security Advisor Richard Allen, and Karen Elliott House of the Wall Street Journal.
