Japan: Premier to give Putin famous banker's book

"Discourses on Rainy Nights", a book by renowned banker Shibusawa Eyichi, came out in a Russian-language version this week in Japanese- and Russian-based publishers' joint effort. Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi intends to give the volume to President Vladimir Putin as they meet in Moscow quite soon, the Sankei Shimbun says in today's issue.

Trailblazing entrepreneur of the early 20th century, founding president of Japan's first joint-stock bank, Shibusawa came down in history as "father of Japanese capitalism".
