    Once the world’s unchallenged industrial superpower, America now faces fierce competition from economies whose social systems, cultures, and business strategies are very different from ours. What lessons can America learn from the dramatic successes of our Japanese and German competitors? In this four-hour PBS mini-series, Hedrick Smith takes us inside innovative companies and classrooms in Japan, Germany, and the United States to reveal the unique strengths and weaknesses each economy brings to the table-and to show how American companies are pioneering new and effective strategies for meeting the challenges of a new era of global competition. The program also features a half-hour interview with President Clinton.
