  • Can China Lead?: Reaching the Limits of Power and Growth

    As we enter this new era, it’s important to rethink how we approach China and its economic growth. That’s where “Can China Lead?” comes in – a thought-provoking book written by leading Chinese experts from Harvard Business School and the Wharton School.

    China’s remarkable economic growth over the past three decades is undeniable, but it now faces major challenges that could alter its political and economic trajectory. With a lack of accountability, transparency, and ease of operation, domestic and foreign businesspeople are becoming increasingly suspicious of the “China model.” These issues have deep roots in Chinese history and the country’s political system, and it’s time for a fresh perspective.

    Regina M. Abrami, William C. Kirby, and F. Warren McFarlan argue that China’s vibrant private sector could be a source of sustainable growth, but it’s limited by corporate political patronage public. The book draws on over thirty Harvard Business School case studies of Chinese and foreign companies doing business in the region, providing a comprehensive understanding of the forces shaping the business landscape in China.

    “Can China Lead?” asserts that China is at an inflection point that cannot be ignored. As we navigate this new landscape, an understanding of the challenges and opportunities presented by China’s political and economic trajectory is essential to establishing and sustaining a successful business in China.
