Profits, Politics and Panics by Leo F. Goodstadt

Book Description

This 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.
