Chinese business enterprise in Asia( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the emergence of Chinese multinationals in the Far East, a debate has arisen on the relationship between the rapid economic growth of the Pacific Rim and the nature of Chinese business enterprise. Just how far has Chinese business been instrumental in the economic transformation of the Far East? This volume looks at the development of Chinese business and management practices across Asia from the late nineteenth century. Experts examine how familism and informal networks have contributed to Chinese entrepreneurial success. They further demonstrate how effective these factors have been in overcoming restrictive state policies: through alliances with ethnic and international traders and connections between financial networks in Hong Kong, South East Asia, China and Australia
Islam in modern Thailand : faith, philanthropy and politics by Rajeswary Ampalavanar Brown( Book )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book addresses the complexity of Islam in Thailand, by focusing on Islamic charities and institutions affiliated to the mosque. By extrapolating through Islam and the waqf (Islamic charity) in different regions of Thailand the diversity in races and institutions, it demonstrates the regional contrast within Thai Islam. The book also underlines the importance of internal histories of these separate spaces, and the processes by which institutions and ideologies become entrenched. It goes on to look at the socio economic transformation that is taking place within the context of trading networks through Islamic institutions and civil networks linked to mosques, madrasas and regional power brokers"--

The Chinese and Indian corporate economies : a comparative history of their search for economic renaissance and globalization by Rajeswary Ampalavanar Brown( )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a compelling analysis of the corporate economies of China and India, which are having a huge impact not just on the international economy, but also in the geopolitical and international strategy sphere as a result of an accelerated globalisation by these two countries, which is unleashing powerful economic challenges to corporate structures, economic institutions and law worldwide. The big question is how after centuries of underdevelopment China and now India are emerging powerfully and pulling ahead of Western European economies. Analysing the role of the state and the adroit use of law, and their impact on the corporate evolution of both China and India, provides greater clarity and insight into why China has evolved as a manufacturing nation utilizing cheap abundant labour while India has not exploited such advantages but instead focused on IT and higher value industries, even abroad as Tata has demonstrated in the motor industry in Europe. Again while Chinese corporations have expanded abroad as an arm of the state into Asia, Middle East, Africa, Europe, Latin America and parts of the southern states of the USA, India has pushed principally into Europe through the efforts of powerful minority capitalists of Parsi and Gujerati background, overcoming technological gaps and differences through acquisitions and absorptions of existing corporations in particular industries, especially in steel, automobiles and textiles. In China, state owned corporations have been dominant. In India, though state owned enterprises have been powerful since 1951, it has been private capitalists with an established stronghold since the colonial period and even under the Socialist period from 1951-1991 who have been the more productive main actors both in India and abroad.--
