Bai Yimin Industrial Economy Research Institute

In recent years, China's economy was facing a series of problems, such as the bottleneck of industrial and technological upgrading, the increasingly tense resources and labor force, and the blocked development of enterprises going to sea.Therefore, Bai Yimin institute of industrial economics was committed to promoting the unified understanding of business, academia and government, promoting the industrial integration of Chinese enterprises, and forming an "internal and external war" independent industrial organization system with global competitiveness.

The "advisory team" of the institute was composed of elites who were willing and able to give advice and suggestions for the development of China's industrial economy. The members came from various think tanks and academic institutions. They did not speak out for their own personal interests, but only for common topics of the people's livelihood. At the same time, they had their own independent judgment.

The institute has established a long-term partnership with a number of large and medium-sized enterprises; cooperated with the government, well-known universities, relevant associations and well-known media in many aspects; formed strategic partners with many consulting companies in the consulting industry; formed our consulting team with many well-known teachers and scholars at home and abroad; and formed our consulting team with well-known private think tanks in the economic community.

Main Opnions

At the end of December 1993, after the recommendation of Beijing Foreign Enterprise Service Company (FESCO) and a simple interview, Bai Yimin inadvertently entered the work of grain, oil and food department of Mitsui products Co., Ltd. Beijing Office (now Mitsui products (China) Co., Ltd.). The next year, the fortune magazine of the United States selected the top 500 enterprises in the world in the previous year. Mitsui's products ranked first, followed by other Japanese comprehensive commercial companies in the second to fifth place.

In April 1996, Bai Yimin was sent to the Tokyo headquarters of Mitsui products to study and work, mainly studying the grain trade in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan, the operation of grain futures in the United States, and the domestic grain storage, transportation and logistics system of Mitsui products in Japan. Learning these business knowledge has benefited Bai Yimin a lot, but what has shocked Bai Yimin even more was the core operation mechanism of Mitsui property headquarters and the spirit of the Japanese staff there. Mr. Dajiang told Bai Yimin, "Without a comprehensive business company, the Japanese economy would collapse."

In September 2004, Bai Yimin was employed as a part-time teacher in the school of economics, Capital University of Economics and Trade, teaching the course of "international trade practice". In March 2005, Bai Yimin participated in the interview of selecting fresh graduates to work in Mitsui products (China) Co., Ltd. Surprisingly, almost all the students and interviewers (including Japanese majors) have not heard of Mitsui products. When Bai Yimin told the students that Toyota and Toshiba belong to Mitsui Financial Group, and Mitsui products were the core leading members of Mitsui Financial Group, the students' faces showed doubts. At this time, Bai Yimin realized that China's university education has been full of American textbooks, and almost no one paid attention to the Japanese economic model.


Japan was full of "patriotic thieves"!

No matter how incredible the economic rise of the United States was, compared with the meteor shower of Japanese modernization, its development seemed to be slow. Japan's two recent rise took less than 30 years.

No matter in the social field or in the economic field, the speed and effectiveness of this modernization process were unprecedented, and its record was unparalleled so far. Behind this high efficiency, we could see the great driving force of national spirit. As professor Greenfield, a famous political scientist and sociology professor, said, "the sustained growth characteristic of modern economy is not self-sustaining, it needs the motivation and support of nationalism."

In the eyes of the Japanese, economic competition was another form of war, the best means to achieve national goals next to war. The enemy was the west, the national spirit was a fighting spirit, in essence, it was to fight against the West. At the same time, it was not the anti western spirit in the general sense of rejecting the western model.

In the course of Japan's economic development, there were many entrepreneurs full of nationalist ideas. The selection of representative figures was enough to show that the real patriots in the economic field must be national and competitive entrepreneurs.
