Determined not to be upstaged by countries like India, China and Korea in breathing new life into its companies, Japan is instigating global mergers in sectors as diverse as brewing, sheet glass, and banking.

1.6.3 Fiscal retrenchment? If we turn to fiscal issues, at the time of entry to the EU in 2004, six of the ten entry countries had government deficits in excess of the SGP/ Maastricht Treaty 3 per cent of GDP rule: the Czech Republic (−5.9 per cent), Cyprus (−4.6 per cent), Hungary (−4.9 per cent), Malta (−5.9 per cent), Poland (−6.0 per cent) and Slovakia (−4.1 per cent).

Those Golden Eggs Come From Somewhere: Internet Regulation at a Crossroads
