Revealing how hundreds of "agents of influence" (senior ex-government officials, now pro-Japan lobbyists), have helped Japan to wield unprecedented power over the scope and direction of US policy, the author argues that Japan can veto legislation, ignore or abort inconvenient trade policies, potentially overwhelm companies, unions or other opposing interests and affect which industries grow or decline in the US economy. Appendices list 200 "agents of influence", their clients and their fees. The book also has a warning not to disregard the consequences of Japanese investment The author has also written "The High Flex Society", "Thinking Strategically", "Being Number One" and "America in Ruins".
