[S1E4] Made in Japan: Akio Morita and Sony

Sony Co-founder Akio Morita's wide-ranging autobiography

4. Made in Japan: Akio Morita and Sony

Akio Morita was the co-founder of Sony and one of the most influential Japanese business people of the 20th century. We analyze his 1986 autobiography, Made in Japan. Made in Japan explains what made Sony so successful and also spends a good deal of time contrasting Japanese and American business practices. We have a wide ranging discussion on the contents of Made in Japan, and how Morita’s thoughts apply in a modern context.
