Resource description

In this paper, and even more in presentation, I will be going out rather far out on the limb of mytraining in industrial relations. Such is, perhaps, the intent of the collaborative process envisioned byLonergan, no less than the theme of this conference. It will be evident from my referencingspecializations far from my field, along with the shaky tone of voice, that the limb is beginning to bendand, perhaps, may be about to give way. If the participants could offer a turning word that will aid thisinvestigation, I would be grateful. This paper takes the form of an extended essay. We begin with a very simple and specific policyproposal for the current U.S. economic crisis, which I offer from my studies in industrial relations.Thereafter, as the section headings suggest, we will venture far afield. The distance travelled is necessarydue to the topic, the nations, and the cultures involved. My aim is, first, to shed light upon one particularset of decisions taken in Japan, in the immediate aftermath of the Pacific War, and how these effectedindustrial relations developments thereafter. Second, and on a different level of analysis, I will presentevidence that singular collaboration took place in Japanese history, at a specific point in time, thatcertainly appears to anticipate the notion of cosmopolis as Lonergan describes this utopian scheme. Third,I will end with brief points of possible further interest to Lonergan scholars.
