Japan needs more gusty moves overseas. In this regard, few even come close to SoftBank's Masayoshi Son. This week, local media circled Japan's second-richest man to chronicle his comeuppance over a failed nine-month effort to acquire T-Mobile US. What I'm more intrigued about is what's next for the Son after last year's cross-border triumph buying Sprint? Where might a guy with the smarts 14 years ago to invest in Alibaba, this year's sexist initial public offering, be looking? Let's give Son an "A" for effort and stop the Monday-morning quarterbacking. Too bad there aren't more in Japan like him.
