The paper "Comparison between Japan and India in terms of Their Cultures, Political Systems" is a perfect example of a business case study. India and Japan are two countries found on the Asian continent. These countries have similarities and differences based on their cultures, political systems, technology and economies. The cultures of the two countries are different except for a few religious similarities. Japan and India are also similar in terms of their conservative nature of dressing. Their political systems are different because Japan is a monarchy while India is a democracy.
Both have bi-cameral legislatures. The two countries are technologically different because Japan’ s technology is more established than that of India. Japan is known for electronics and automobile manufacturing among other technologies while India is known for its agricultural technologies. India is also investing in other technologies as well. In terms of their economies, the economy of Japan is stronger than that of India. Japan began heavy investments in science and technology and other sectors of the economy in the 1950s. Its policy of no investment in the military has been a great boost to its economy.
India, on the other hand, is still growing its economy but it is showing a lot of potentials that Japan does not have. Introduction This paper will present a discussion on the comparison between Japan and India in terms of their cultures, political systems, technologies and the economies. It was decided that a comparison between these two countries be carried out because they are major players in the global economy today. They are also rivals in terms of economical, cultural and technological supremacy. A comparison of these two countries will, therefore, reveal their strengths and weaknesses relative to each other hence their collective importance to one another, to the Asian continent and to the globe.
This topic is important because India is emerging as a global power in technological and economical matters. Some observers suggest that it may overtake Japan in the near future. This comparison can be beneficial to economic strategists and stakeholders in both countries because both countries would like to occupy a position above each other. The paper will, therefore, add to the existing pool of knowledge about the two countries, something that will be advantageous to scholars and researchers in economic, technological, political and cultural studies.
The paper presents a very deep analysis of theory and practice. It also aims to find out the existing differences and similarities in the cultural, political, technological and economic spheres of Japan and India. Both countries are in Asia and day by day, they are becoming competing powers in the region and on the global scene. The authors will carry out desktop research using journals, books, and the internet and media reports.
They will scrutinize the information obtained based on their relevance to the topic, the credibility of the authors and the date of publication. This will help them to remain with only relevant, credible and up to date information about India and Japan. The authors may find it hard to obtain the most current data on aspects such as technology and the economy.
