They have not dealt with the reality of submission (authority relations) by checking them from the outside, but have attenuated them (where there are differences in rankings) by using parent-child, family, and peer relations to foster the perception of homogeneity. The abolition of status differentials between blue- and white-collar workers and the formation of enterprise unions after the war strengthened this perception. Whereas contractual relations in the West are premised on differences among workers and managers, Japanese workers have sought ‘trust’ relations based upon the homogeneity of all enterprise members.

2 The West is diverse, however, and this chapter focuses primarily on American Fordism. Europe is considered through this ‘stylised fact’ only to the extent that its institutions are congruent with those of the US. The basic problem is that while contemporary society extols the freedom and equality of people in civil society on the one hand, it seeks on the other to establish the domination of authority in capitalist society. Inside an enterprise, this means that while workers demand equality in relations with management, in reality they must accept a subordinate position.

There is strong evidence of institutional complementarity between the two major institutional forms: the WLN, the monetary and financial regime. Akinori Isogai, Akira Ebizuka and Hiroyasu Uemura put a strong emphasis upon the hierarchical organisation of the firms and its relations with subcontractors, that brings into the picture the very specific form of competition prevailing in the Japanese manufacturing system (Chapter 2). Furthermore, the authors point out the role of this structural complementarity in the design of an adequate incentive system, Introduction 15 and how the hierarchical market-firm nexus is associated to a deep gender division of labour and role within the family and in the whole society.
