Profits, Politics and Panics by Leo F. Goodstadt
Book DescriptionThis book recounts the banks' painful struggles to adapt to dramatic economic and political changes in China and Hong Kong between 1935-85. It identifies how misguided government decisions led to recurrent banking crises. Nevertheless, the banks almost single-handed financed first the manufacturing takeoff and then the post-industrial economy.
