Riassunto: A brilliant, groundbreaking study that examines the internal dynamics of each part of greater China & the possible consequences of their impending reunification. Since the early 1980s, investment money has been pouring into China from Hong Kong & trade has escalated at a rocket s pace. A few years later, the same pattern began between China & Taiwan. The combination of Hong Kong/Taiwan management & financial & export know-how with China s inexhaustible pool of cheap labor & land has enabled China in one decade to leap from an impoverished revolutionary state to a major international trading power.
Recensione: With Hong Kong's reversion to Chinese rule, a new style of leadership under party chief and president Jiang Zemin, and unrivaled economic growth, China is more unpredictable than ever. In an era in which communist regimes are crumbling worldwide, China not only survives but prospers, contradicting the West's maxim that open markets inevitably lead to open societies. Given all the unknowns that surround China's future, Willem van Kemenade's China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Inc. seems a brave undertaking. Van Kemenade, a Dutch journalist specializing in Asian affairs, presents a well-documented account of the economic powerhouse forming around the combined might of the Chinese mainland (including Macao and Hong Kong) and Taiwan.
Though he gives no easy answers, van Kemenade poses a lot of interesting questions, providing in the process a fascinating portrait of a nation replete with contradictions: though the central government has maintained an iron grip on Chinese politics, Chinese-style capitalism has garnered greater economic freedom from Beijing in many parts of the country. How this new independence might affect other areas such as the military is anybody's guess, although van Kemenade provides some compelling scenarios of ways in which such a situation might play out. China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Inc. is a provocative look at China on the threshold of the 21st century.
