Japan has always been a complex read for global investors and business executives. Even more so now that the world's second-largest economy has begun a wrenching transition to embrace such big global trends as cross-border mergers, new forms of finance, and the commercial exploitation of the Internet.

Eye on Japan tracks the country's winners and losers, and assesses how globalization is changing the contours of this nation's economic, political, and cultural life. Business Week Asian Economics Editor Brian Bremner will deliver his insights for BW Online every week. You can reach him at brian_bremner@businessweek.com.
