Dynamics of Family Business: The Chinese Way (eBook)  (ISBN-10: 9814253685 | ISBN-13: 9789814253680)

This book presents an in-depth study of five Chinese family businesses in Singapore that have overcome supposedly culturally inherent restrictions to growth and have successfully made the intergenerational transitions. They have also grown in size across family generations to become business empires in the Asia Pacific and the West. The analysis of the success factors of these five successful Chinese family businesses includes an examination of cultural and institutional factors, and importantly, the entrepreneurial role of the family business leaders. The success of these five outstanding entrepreneurially oriented Chinese family businesses and the profile of their family business leaders are templates for other Chinese family business leaders and potentially future large and successful Chinese family businesses to follow.

Key features include:

  • Breaks the long-held misconception of Western researchers that Chinese family businesses cannot develop into full-fledged multinationals
  • Detailed case studies of Chinese family businesses across various industries and at different stages of succession by succeeding generations of the family

Singapore's Success: Engineering Economic Growth (eBook)  (ISBN-10: 9814253642 | ISBN-13: 9789814253642)

This monograph seeks the key to good economic policy by explaining Singapore's remarkably rapid development-the world's fastest-growing economy between 1960 and 2000-and asks whether the city-state's success can be translated to other countries. Engineering prosperity is at the heart of Singapore. The book demonstrates how exceptional cohesion amongst economic outcomes, policies, institutions, values, and leadership over a long period account for the impressive results obtained. The author is careful not to present Singapore as a model to be copied uncritically in its specifics but as a case history that illustrates general principles which other countries might wish to apply to their particular circumstances.

Key features include:

  • Lays out simply and clearly the interaction between fiscal and monetary prudence, capital accumulation and labor force improvement, openness to foreign investment, predictability of the policy environment, and not least, how the Singapore government co-opted popular support by providing opportunities for all, including ethnic minorities
  • Emphasizes general principles, while illustrating their specific implementation in the Singapore context, to make the book relevant to policy-makers elsewhere
