Chinese enterprise, transnationalism, and identity by Edmund Terence Gomez( )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 1,201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text focuses on one ethnic community - the Chinese - and examines the variety of issues surrounding enterprise development from national and transnational perspectives, starting with the role played by Chinese entrepreneurs in the 1997 Asian financial crisis. Using empirical evidence and theoretical debate the contributors argue that Chinese enterprise is accelerated by intra-ethnic competition, rather than intra-ethnic co-operation, and that businessmen work in their own interest, not that of the Chinese community, as other literature dealing with the subject suggests

Chinese business in Southeast Asia : contesting cultural explanations, researching entrepreneurship by Edmund Terence Gomez( )

27 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in English and held by 1,016 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Existing explanations for the remarkable success of businesses in South-East Asia owned and managed by people of ethnic Chinese origin have emphasised cultural factors, arguing that there are special models of Chinese business, Chinese capital and Chinese entrepreneurship, and that business networks based on shared identities have been vital in developing the corporate base for such businesses. This book argues that the position is in fact much more complex, varying in the different countries of South-East Asia and changing over time. It presents empirical findings from various South-East Asian countries - Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, The Philippines and Indonesia - and demonstrates that Chinese businessmen employ a variety of strategies in networking, entrepreneurship and organisational and form development."--BOOK JACKET

The Chinese in Britain, 1800-present : economy, transnationalism, identity by Gregor Benton( Book )

"This book sets out the history of the Chinese in Britain from the angle of changes in their economic and social standing. By analysing their migration patterns, associational structures and paths of enterprise development, the book seeks to understand processes of identity formation among members of this community - and, by extension, of ethnic minorities in general."--Jacket
Chinese business in Malaysia : accumulation, ascendance, accommodation by Edmund Terence Gomez( Book )

19 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chinese capital in Malaysia appears to have reasonable prospects for further growth in the immediate future. A review of the literature on Chinese business in Malaysia would indicate that although all studies acknowledge the dominant role of Chinese capital in the economy, there is a dearth of in-depth empirical research on its mode of development and styles of operation. This study, which covers the period from colonial times to the present day, fills that gap by identifying key issues pertaining to Chinese business operations in Malaysia: ownership and control patterns, style of growth, relations with the state, politicians and other Chinese businessmen, and the manner of development of business abroad, at the same time debunking the theory that large-scale Chinese capital is not very entrepreneurial in nature."--BOOK JACKET

Minister of Finance Incorporated : ownership and control of corporate Malaysia by Edmund Terence Gomez( )

13 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and German and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a study of Malaysia’s new political economy, with a focus on ownership and control of the corporate sector. It offers a pioneering assessment of government-linked investment companies (GLICs), a type of state-owned institution that has long prevailed in the corporate sector but has not been analysed. Malaysia’s history of government-business ties is unique, while the nature of the nexuses between the state and the corporate sector has undergone major transitions. Corporate power has shifted from the hands of foreign firms to the state to the ruling party, and well-connected businessmen, and back to the state. Corporate wealth is now heavily situated in the leading publicly-listed government-linked companies (GLCs), controlled through block shareholdings by a mere seven GLICs under the jurisdiction of the Minister of Finance. To indicate why these GLICs are important actors in Corporate Malaysia, this study provides a deep assessment of their ownership and control of Bursa Malaysia’s top 100 publicly-listed enterprises -- Provided by the publisher

Government-linked companies and sustainable, equitable development by Edmund Terence Gomez( )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The debate over how far governments should intervene in economies in order to promote economic growth has taken on new vigour since the financial crisis of 2008. Many countries, many of them in Asia, have secured good economic growth after the crisis by adopting a developmental state model, with governments intervening in their economies, often supporting specific companies. This book explores debates about government intervention, assesses interventionist policies and examines the key institutions which play a crucial role in implementing government policies and building bridges between state and private sector. Countries covered include China, India, South Korea, Malaysia and Taiwan

Belonging to the nation : generational change, identity and the Chinese diaspora( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study reviews developments in the ethnic and national identity of the descendants of migrants, taking ethnic Chinese as a case study. Our core question is why, in spite of debates worldwide about identity, exclusion and rights, do minority communities continue to suffer discrimination and attacks? This question is asked in view of the growing incidence in recent years of 'racial' conflicts between majority and minority communities and among minorities, in both developed and developing countries. The study examines national identity from the perspective of migrants' descendants, whose national identity may be more rooted than is often thought. Concepts such as 'new ethnicities', 'cultural fluidity', and 'new' and 'multiple' identities feature in this examination. These concepts highlight identity changes across generations and the need to challenge and reinterpret the meaning of 'nation' and to review problems with policy initiatives designed to promote nation-building in multi-ethnic societies
