Reflections on the Seventieth Anniversary of the End of the Pacific War: Eight Stanford Scholars Write Their Own August Statement

Alberto Díaz-Cayeros, Peter Duus, Thomas Fingar, David Holloway, Takeo Hoshi, Yong Suk Lee, Henry S. Rowen, Daniel C. Sneider
2015 May 15, 2015

On August 15, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will publish a short statement to commemorate the seventieth anniversary of the end of World War II.  This follows similar practices of his predecessors.  Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama started by delivering a short statement on the fiftieth anniversary in 1995.  Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi followed in 2005 with the statement on the sixtieth anniversary.

China: Big Changes Coming Soon

Henry Rowen
Policy Review, No. 170, 2011 December 1, 2011

Big changes are ahead for China, probably abrupt ones. The economy has grown so rapidly for many years, over 30 years at an average of 9 percent a year, that its size makes it a major player in trade and finance and increasingly in political and military matters. This growth is not only of great importance internationally, it is already having profound domestic social effects and it is bound to have internal political ones — sooner or later.

Greater China's Quest for Innovation

Henry S. Rowen, Marguerite Gong Hancock, William F. Miller
Shorenstein APARC, distributed by Brookings Institution Press, 2008 November 1, 2008

Will China come to dominate global high-tech innovation?

In the future, perhaps. Today, however, Greater China—Mainland China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong—is focused on the quest for innovation. The dominant paradigm on the Mainland is one of execution, not innovation. Beijing now aims to turn China—historically an adopter of technologies from elsewhere—into a major technology creator. Self-reliance has become the government’s watchword and its ultimate goal.

The Curious Life of Clusters

Henry Rowen
Far Eastern Economic Review, 2007 July 1, 2007

Clusters of craftsmen have existed as long as people have lived in substantial settlements— certainly since they have lived in cities. Modern examples include diamond cutters in Antwerp, knife makers in Sheffield, sock makers in Yiwu, and the cinematic entertainers in Mumbai. This phenomenon is widely present in Asia’s information technology (it) industry.

Making IT: The Rise of Asia in High Tech

Henry S. Rowen, William F. Miller, Marguerite Gong Hancock
Stanford University Press, 2006 November 1, 2006

In 2003, consumption of IT goods worldwide was $1.5 trillion. Asia represented twenty percent of this total. Even more telling, Asia produced about forty percent of these goods. The continued rise of Asian IT innovation will pose a challenge to the eminence of traditional IT centers, notably Silicon Valley.

North Korea: 2005 and Beyond

Philip Yun, Gi-Wook Shin, Robert Carlin, Haksoon Paik, William B. Brown, Yong Sueng Dong, David Hawk, Kim Ki-Sik, Scott Snyder, Taik-Young Hamm, Henry S. Rowen
Shorenstein APARC, Brookings Institution Press, 2006 January 1, 2006

Ten years ago, in the summer of 1995, it was fashionable in Washington and Seoul to predict the imminent collapse of North Korea's political and economic systems, and even the state itself. While clearly an errant forecast, it is easy to see why pundits and analysts thought as they did. Kim Il-Sung had died. Kim's son and successor, Kim Jong-Il, was failing to lead just as the country suffered a massive agricultural failure. A nuclear-weapons dispute with the United States had forced a costly full-scale mobilization of the country's million-man army.

Prospects for Peace in South Asia

Rafiq Dossani, Henry S. Rowen
Stanford University Press: Studies of the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center, 2005 March 25, 2005

Prospects for Peace in South Asia, the inaugural title in a new series of "Studies of the Asia-Pacific Research Center" published by Stanford University Press, addresses the largely hostile, often violent relations between India and Pakistan that date from their independence in 1947. The persistent conflict between the two neighboring countries over Kashmir has defied numerous international attempts at resolution and entered its most dangerous phase when both India and Pakistan became nuclear powers in 1998.

Kim Jong Il Must Go

Henry S. Rowen
Policy Review, 2003 October 1, 2003

North Korea's nuclear-weapons programs confront us with hard choices. They create a sense of urgency to make another deal with the North, but experience tells us that any new agreement will not stem the flow of crises. However we handle the immediate crisis, we will do better if we do so while having in mind an end position -- something we have not done since the end of the Korean War 50 years ago. The argument here is that there should be different leadership in Pyongyang as a step towards the political unification of the peninsula.

Will China Take over World Manufacturing?

Henry Rowen
International Economy, 2002 November 1, 2002

(Excerpt) China is becoming the workplace of the world, so we are increasingly told. Jeffrey Garten, dean of the Yale School of Management, writes, "Will China's importance to global manufacturing soon resemble Saudi Arabia's position in world oil markets?" And the world economy might "soon become dangerously vulnerable to a major supply disruption [in China] caused by war, terrorism, social unrest, or a natural disaster" (Business Week, June 17, 2002).

From Keiretsu to Startups: Japan's Push for High Tech Entrepreneurship

Henry S. Rowen, A. Maria Toyoda
Shorenstein APARC, 2002 October 1, 2002

How much does it matter that Japan creates relatively few new high technology companies? Many observers estimate, or at least assume, that entrepreneurial dynamism and its associated innovations promote economic growth and in the long run are necessary for it. In recent years there has been much attention devoted to fostering such new firms in many countries, including Japan, with much of this interest derived from the example of Silicon Valley.

To the Brink of Peace: New Challenges in Inter-Korean Economic Cooperation and Integration

Henry S. Rowen, William J. Perry, Bradley Babson, Nicholas Eberstadt, Peter Hayes, Jeong-Woo Kil, Won Bae Kim, Lawrence J. Lau, Kiseok Lee
Shorenstein APARC, 2001 December 1, 2001

Relations between North and South Korea have been one of the most important and vexing topics in Asia for over fifty years. The historic June 2000 summit meeting between North Korean leader Kim Jong Il and the South's Kim Dae Jung seemed to mark the first real progress in relations in many years, and set off a search for realistic ways to solidify the nascent cooperation between the two. All at once, formulating a sensible strategy for economic cooperation between North and South became an urgent policy issue rather than an abstract intellectual exercise.

The enormous and sustained success of Silicon Valley has excited interest around the globe. Startup companies the world over are attempting to emulate its high tech businesses, and many governments are changing their institutions in order to foster Silicon Valleys of their own. What accounts for the Valley's leading edge in innovation and entrepreneurship?

Catch Up: Why Poor Countries Are Becoming Richer, Democratic, Increasingly Peaceable, and Sometimes More Dangerous

Henry S. Rowen
Shorenstein APARC, 1999 August 1, 1999

Why Poor Countries Are Becoming Richer, Democratic, Increasingly Peaceable, and Sometimes More Dangerous

It is easy to be confused about the world’s prospect. On the one hand, since the collapse of the Soviet Union and its empire, many millions of people have been freed from economic and political shackles that had long kept them under authoritarian rule and in poverty—or at least far poorer than they should be. On the other hand, several parts of the world are beset by political turmoil and conflicts, rapid population increases, and falling incomes.
