Business system:
The culture is seen as the basis for meaning: we analyse how each society constructs its own way of making sense of its surrounding context in three fields.
1. Rationale: basic reasons adopted by people to explain the way they have chosen to make the economy work
2. Identity: the core ideas in the society about the place of the person in the social structure
3. Authority: the way in which power is typically exercised in the society and its organizations.
The middle part, (order in the book), institutional fabric of the society. It represents the understanding of the rules of the game and whether compliance with those rules is ensured.

o 1990s: bubble blows up = lost decade (extending to two decades)
Culture
• The firm exists to keep people employed + return on capital for the shareholders is not a primary rationale for economic actions
• Individual is centered around the “ie”
• Group norms
• Firm = vertical entity separate from other entities and in rivalry with them
• Decentralized decision making (consensus seeking, group creativity commitment of workforce)

Institutions
• (Capital) Patient capital: provided by Japan’s financial institutions (banks, insurance companies and the stock markets). They have not been designed to achieve the highest rates of allocative efficiency in the short term, having resisted in the influence from outside
