This lecture will take an in-depth look at a distinct form of capitalism: Regional Ethnic Chinese Capitalism. Professor Redding will share his views on its strengths as a business system, and also its long-term weaknesses. These features are described and considered for their implications today.
MEET THE SPEAKER
Professor Gordon Redding
Gordon Redding leads a team of specialists in higher education in a context of major global change. His career has been devoted largely to higher education and research in Asia, including 24 years at the University of Hong Kong, where he holds an Emeritus Professorship, and where he founded and directed the university’s Business School. He has also spent 16 years at INSEAD, for part of that time as Director of its Euro-Asia Centre – the origin of its Asian campus. He continues to teach at INSEAD. His initial degree was at Cambridge, followed by eleven years as an executive in UK industry. He returned to the world of scholarship by doing a Ph.D at Manchester Business School, but has retained his connections with the world of industry via consulting and executive development work for companies worldwide. In 1999 he was awarded an honorary doctorate by the Stockholm School of Economics for his work on Asian business. In 2006 he received the bi-annual Award for Distinguished Scholarship of the International Association of Chinese Management Researchers. He has published fifteen books, of which the main ones have been The Spirit of Chinese Capitalism (New York, de Gruyter), The Future of Chinese Capitalism (with Michael Witt, Oxford University Press), and The Oxford Handbook of Asian Business Systems (edited with Michael Witt, Oxford University Press).
This free lecture is presented by the HEAD Foundation, a Singapore-based think-tank devoted to research and policy advice in the fields of higher education and societal development in Asia.
