This week: Tim Shorrock is an American investigative journalist whose ties to Japan go deeper than most of his colleagues. He grew up in Tokyo, and has Japanese relatives still living there. For much of the 1980’s Shorrock reported on Asia from Japan, following closely Japanese political figures, and financial intrigues in the then-ascendant leader of the Asian Tiger economies.
