Book launch hosted by Professor Mari Sako
Modern Asia is built upon a web of close relationships running between and within business and politics: the connections world.
The connections world has enormous advantages in promoting economic development, but also comes with significant social costs and fallibilities.
Simon Commander and Saul Estrin will talk about their new book 'The connections world: The future of Asian capitalism', with Eric Thun as discussant. They will argue that if Asia’s claim to the 21st century is not to be derailed, major changes must be made to policy and behaviour to promote more sustainable economic and political systems.
Join the speakers and Professor Mari Sako for an evening exploring what the future could hold for Asian capitalism.
