    Corporate Governance of Sustainability

    Edited by Raimund Bleischwitz
    This book considers corporate governance of sustainability from a co-evolutionary perspective.

Relevant theory on corporate governance, competition, market failures and regulatory tools is also examined. The authors go on to present an assessment methodology suitable for empirical network analysis at the meso-level, and demonstrate its application using eight case studies. Based on the findings of this research Raimund Bleischwitz and his team draw important conclusions for policy analysis and sustainability assessments and the actors involved. Learn More

Finally, insightful narratives on the birth and growth of a government-fostered strategic industry are provided, as is a synopsis of the Asian contribution to the evolution of the global microelectronics development.

  6. Reforming China’s State-owned Enterprises and Banks

    Reforming China’s State-owned Enterprises and Banks

    Becky Chiu, Mervyn K. Lewis
    This book’s starting point is that after two decades of experiments, during which other transition economies have effectively privatised all of their former state enterprises, China is still endeavouring to find a way to reinvent and re-engineer its own state-owned economic establishments. The authors explore these reforms along with the problems of China’s state-owned banks, which have long been troubled by the adverse loans of Chinese enterprises and face foreign competition in 2007 under China’s WTO commitments. Drawing on wide-ranging case studies of enterprise reform, Becky Chiu and Mervyn Lewis combine their extensive experience to give an authoritative account of China’s enterprise and bank reform agenda, involving property rights, improved corporate governance and stimulating enterprise.

  7. Transformational CEOs

    Transformational CEOs

    Kimio Kase, Francisco J. Sáez-Martínez, Hernán Riquelme
    Transformational CEOs questions why some Japanese firms succeeded in the 1990s despite an economy that failed – regardless of the burst of the ‘bubble’ economy, a number of Japanese companies have maintained or extended their international leadership in particular sectors. The authors argue that whilst some of the reasons for successes are plain common sense – operational effectiveness and superior CEO leadership – some are Japan-specific and point to a break with traditional leadership rationale.

  13. China and its Regions

    China and its Regions

    Edited by Mary-Françoise Renard
    In twenty years of reform in China, the key development has been the opening-up of the market to foreign trade and international investment. This increased economic openness has been accompanied by profound changes in both economic organisation and regional disparity. This comprehensive book focuses on the link between these economic reforms and the causes – and ultimately the implications – of regional inequalities in the most populous country in the world.

  14. Entrepreneurship and the Internationalisation of Asian Firms

    Entrepreneurship and the Internationalisation of Asian Firms

    Henry Wai-chung Yeung
    This book applies an institutional perspective on transnational entrepreneurship to empirical investigations of transnational corporations (TNCs) from Hong Kong and Singapore. Henry Wai-chung Yeung argues that significant variations in institutional structures of home countries explain variations in the entrepreneurial endowments of prospective transnational business networks. This is illustrated by empirical data from two in-depth studies of over 300 TNCs from Hong Kong and Singapore and over 120 of their foreign affiliates in Asia. Learn More

  15. China in the Global Economy

    China in the Global Economy

    Edited by P. J. Lloyd, Xiao-guang Zhang
    China in the Global Economy focuses on the theme of twin transitions occurring in the Chinese economy: the transition from a centrally planned economic system to a market oriented one, and from an agrarian to a modern industrialised society. China’s exporters face unprecedented competition in the world market and the flow of foreign direct investment has fallen restraining the growth of the domestic economy. These new challenges have fuelled debate on the perspective of the Chinese economy and its role in the global economy. Learn More
