Renault and Nissan are losing sight of the bigger picture

Clash of egos is hurting ability to compete

| Japan
It is only fair that Renault give Nissan a bigger share of profits.

Can Carlos Ghosn escape punishment? And as the Nissan-Renault clash intensifies, can Japan's global reputation evade conviction?

One thing is clear about this clash of corporate titans: there are no heroes. Nissan Motor looks vindictive amid the palace coup that ousted Ghosn. Neither Nissan CEO Hiroto Saikawa nor Renault's new Chairman Jean-Dominique Senard has distinguished himself. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan and President Emmanuel Macron of France have so far failed to find a solution. Japan's legal system is losing in the court of global opinion.
