Summary
"Between 1935 and 1985, Hong Kong's growth seemed unstoppable. The economy flourished despite wars, revolution and Western protectionism to emerge as a world-class manufacturing exporter and an international financial centre. Yet, for bankers, these were troubled years, with bank runs, corporate scandals and the 1983 currency collapse. The crises were avoidable and caused by government blunders as well as the banks' mismanagement. This book offers an account of a turbulent banking industry which will be compelling reading not only for bankers and corporate executives but for readers interested in government's relations with business and the sources of Hong Kong's economic success."--BOOK JACKET
