Tradition and Transformation in a Chinese Family Business

Tradition and Transformation in a Chinese Family Business

Author: Heung Wah Wong, Karin Ling-Fung Chau Format: Hardback Release Date: 31/05/2019

Family businesses have been an important part of the economy in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and in the Chinese diaspora, and, since the reforms, in mainland China itself. Some people have argued that the success of Chinese family businesses occurs because of the special characteristics and approach of such businesses. This book examines the nature of Chinese family business and the key issues involved by exploring in detail the case of a leading Hong Kong jewellery company, Tse Sui Luen Jewellery (TSL), which was established by Tse Sui Luen in the 1960s and which has grown to become one of the biggest jewellery manufacturers, exporters and retailers in post-war Hong Kong. The book considers the motivations of Chinese people to set up their own businesses, outlining the strategies adopted, including the strategies for raising capital, and the qualities of successful Chinese entrepreneurs. It discusses the management of the company, including relations between family members, profit sharing and succession planning, and assesses how conflict and crises are coped with and overcome. It charts the evolution of Chinese family businesses, looking at how they have been modernised and in many cases transformed into listed corporations, discussing how for this is necessary and desirable. The book concludes by discussing how Chinese family business are likely to evolve in the future.

Big Business A Love Letter to an American Anti-Hero

Big Business A Love Letter to an American Anti-Hero

Author: Tyler Cowen Format: Hardback Release Date: 09/04/2019

We love to hate the 800-pound gorilla. Walmart and Amazon destroy communities and small businesses. Facebook turns us into addicts while putting our personal data at risk. From skeptical politicians like Bernie Sanders who, at a 2016 presidential campaign rally said, 'If a bank is too big to fail, it is too big to exist,' to millennials, only 42 percent of whom support capitalism, belief in big business is at an all-time low. But are big companies inherently evil? If business is so bad, why does it remain so integral to the basic functioning of America? Economist and bestselling author Tyler Cowen says our biggest problem is that we don't love business enough. In Big Business, Cowen puts forth an impassioned defense of corporations and their essential role in a balanced, productive, and progressive society. He dismantles common misconceptions and untangles conflicting intuitions. According to a 2016 Gallup survey, only 12 percent of Americans trust big business 'quite a lot,' and only 6 percent trust it 'a great deal.' Yet Americans as a group are remarkably willing to trust businesses, whether in the form of buying a new phone on the day of its release or simply showing up to work in the expectation they will be paid. Cowen illuminates the crucial role businesses play in spurring innovation, rewarding talent and hard work, and creating the bounty on which we've all come to depend.

Ownership Structure, Related Party Transactions, and Firm Valuation Evidence from Indian Business Groups

Ownership Structure, Related Party Transactions, and Firm Valuation Evidence from Indian Business Groups

Concentrated ownership is considered to be the best protection for shareholders in economies where legal protection is relatively weak. This book investigates and concludes, for Indian business groups, that concentrated-inside ownership provides opportunities for the expropriation of minority shareholders. While more concentrated direct ownership of controlling families results in a higher market value of equity, indirect ownership obtained through cross-holding provides incentives to extract private benefits and results in value loss. This finding requires the prompt attention of regulatory bodies, outside investors and other interested parties. This book examines the effect of ownership structure and disclosure of related-party transactions on firm valuation of group-affiliated firms in India, by using a sample of 317 listed firms comprising 1350 firm-year observations from 2008 to 2017. Well-accepted value-relevance models are employed to examine the effect of ownership rights on market value of equity and valuation effect of RP trading, asset transfer, investment and loan transactions.

International Corporate Law and Financial Market Regulation Independent Directors in Asia: A Historical, Contextual and Comparative Approach

International Corporate Law and Financial Market Regulation Independent Directors in Asia: A Historical, Contextual and Comparative Approach

Author: Dan W. (National University of Singapore) Puchniak Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 21/02/2019

The rise of the independent director in Asia is an issue of global consequence that has been largely overlooked until recently. Less than two decades ago, independent directors were oddities in Asia's boardrooms. Today, they are ubiquitous. Independent Directors in Asia undertakes the first detailed analysis of this phenomenon. It provides in-depth historical, contextual and comparative perspectives on the law and practice of independent directors in seven core Asian jurisdictions (China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan) and Australia. These case studies reveal the varieties of independent directors in Asia, none of which conform to its original American concept. The authors develop a taxonomy of these varieties, which provides a powerful analytical tool for more accurately understanding and effectively researching independent directors in Asia. This new approach challenges foundational aspects of comparative corporate governance practice and suggests a new path for comparative corporate governance scholarship and reform.
