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.
