Collective myopia and defective higher educations behind the scenes of ethically bankrupted economic systems: A reflexive note from a japanese university and taking a step toward transcultural dialogues [Book Review]

Journal of Business Ethics 38 (3):205 - 225 (2002)
Abstract
This study focused on the indirect influences of defective higher education, especially management education, on the corruption of Japanese business communities since 1997. Most arrested or penalized Japanese executives and bureaucrats since 1997 were the alumni of prestigious Japanese universities. Their levels of academic achievements are, consequently, conceived to be the highest of Japanese standards. They were, however, found guilty. Why did these highly intelligent Japanese adults make such fatal mistakes? In this article, the author argued that the event of the continuous exposure of scandals and corruptions in Japan since 1997 was an unintended consequence of Japan's educational systems through Habermasian and Foucaultian positions.
