Abstract
Using a survey database of Japanese and Korean firms, we compare the styles of two Asian business systems, with a Japanese rather than an American mir ror. There are substantial differences in the two country styles. We introd uce two sources of convergence, firm size as measured by sales, and globali zation as measured, by export ratio, and find that both of these factors re duce the difference, with globalization the more significant of the two.
