One of the most successful organizational forms in Asia has been the family business group, especially in its regional ethnic Chinese form. But the Chinese themselves have long said that it is a matter of 'rags to riches to rags in three generations'. New research illustrates the truth of this acknowledged weakness. This lecture investigates the reasons behind the phenomenon and considers the implications for the future of China and the likely industrial options in the wider region.

Professor Gordon Redding, co-editor of the Oxford Handbook of Asian Business Systems, examines several explanations for this and the common denominators proposed in success or failure. 

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. 

The HEAD Foundation welcomes all who are interested in its fields of enquiry and policy.
