ART OF BUSINESS: How the Chinese Got Rich
Bibliophile price: £0.50
How many items in your home state Made in China? Looking beyond Sun Tzu, the Silk Road and Marco Polo into the past, present and future of China's inexorable economic rise, we are all aware that China is on track to become the world's largest economy. Yet the West still has a poor understanding of this economic giant. Clydesdale looks back beyond the opium trade to examine how Patayan merchants made money in a Time-Space dimension, international trade, the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), the China industry, the late Ming and Qing dynasties (1644-1911) and overseas Chinese in Southeast Asia. He explores the historical practices, values and achievements and examines how merchants built substantial wealth by mastering the spatial and temporal dimensions of the market, the commercial revolutions of the Tang and Song dynasties, the salt merchants, the porcelain industry, and Howqua, who became the world's richest man. Rediscover strategies and gain insight into the genesis of this global power and look at new demands which will be placed on tomorrow's businesses. 232 pages in large illustrated softback.
