The Story of the Transistor Radio
This chapter focuses on the final key to prosperity: the cheap labor of the underprivileged classes, particularly young women. It explains that cheap labor was Japan's traditional advantage in the national marketplace, and was surprisingly appropriate to the manufacture of “high-tech” goods such as radios and televisions. The chapter explains that cheap labor lay behind Japan's first great export success in the electrical goods industry: the portable transistor radio.
