United States Expels Japanese Bank From the Country
The Federal Reserve Board in the United States has given Japan's Daiwa Bank Ltd. 90 days to leave the country. The bank was accused of concealing false records of more than $1 billion in trading losses. Supposedly, the bank's top managers in the United States and in Japan not only helped to conceal these and other losses from U.S. bank regulators but also lied to the Federal Reserve about organizational structural changes. The case illustrates the problem that nations have in managing foreign firms within their borders whose ways of doing business are different from those in the host country.
