    Sustaining Growth and Performance in East Asia

    Edited by Charles Harvie, Boon-Chye Lee

  2. Competition and Corporate Governance in Korea

    Competition and Corporate Governance in Korea

    Edited by Sung-Hee Jwa, In K. Lee
    Competition and Corporate Governance in Korea critically reviews government policy towards the chaebol and provides a comprehensive investigation of the relationship between corporate governance and economic performance as well as the interaction of economic institutions with the chaebols’ incentive structure and management behaviour. Policy implications based on objective and rigorous empirical analyses of data on the chaebol are also discussed. Notwithstanding the fact that the chaebol have already undergone considerable governance, capital, and business portfolio restructuring, this volume suggests a road map for further restructuring, and the creation of a new incentive structure to help strengthen chaebol competitiveness.

  3. Globalization and Marketization in Education

    Globalization and Marketization in Education

    Ka-Ho Mok, Jason Tan
    Globalization has effected tremendous change to the character and functions of education worldwide. This unique book focuses on its impact upon Hong Kong and Singapore, and how these two East Asian Tigers have responded to the strong global tide of marketization in shaping and developing their education policies. The authors discuss the way in which increasingly prominent tides of marketization, privatization, corporatization and decentralization have influenced the governance and management of education in these two Asian economies. They aim to identify and examine the crucial socio-historical, socio-economic and socio-political factors for education reforms initiated in the two societies in recent years. Learn More

  6. Industrial Relations in China

    Industrial Relations in China

    Bill Taylor, Kai Chang, Qi Li
    This enlightening book provides the first systematic introduction to, and exploration of, the emerging system of industrial relations in China, and draws on the authors’ extensive research and direct involvement in the developments taking place. The authors argue that there are both unifying and fragmenting elements to the ongoing development of industrial relations, but overall it is one in which the state continues to maintain a major, and direct, influence. Divisions between workers and managers may be escalating with increased open conflicts, but this book reveals that the picture is far more complex and contradictory than to assume that the solution is convergence with western style industrial relations systems. They conclude that industrial relations institutions and processes still act within a political context and with the guiding hand of the Chinese Communist party. Learn More

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.

    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.

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

  18. 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
