Description - Profits, Politics, and Panics by Leo F. Goodstadt

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.
