    Panasonic and other Japanese companies commonly own cross-shareholding stakes in their suppliers and customers to cement business ties.

    Yup, and possibly one of the many reasons Panasonic and other Japanese electronics companies are failing. Instead of investing their capital in R&D and other means to stay more efficient/competitive, they have it tied up in the stock of other companies. Stability has its price.

    Get Real

    Panasonic spent USD 6.6Bn last year on R&D.

    Their biggest problem was the 'make it and they will buy' mentality - engineers creating products largely for their own gratification (square and over specced) instead of asking what the customer needed and wanted.
