IPSG 8592 / IPOL 8592 - UnderstandingChineseCapitalism      

After two global financial crises, Western capitalism is under fire both in North American and in Europe. A new form of capitalism is emerging; which may signal a paradigm shift in how the world does business. China has emerged as a major economic player; and is evolving its own form of economic activity, “Chinese Capitalism“. This course will explore Chinese capitalism in depth from the perspective of three major Chinese corporate entities. It will provide a framework in which to both understand how to interact with Chinese capitalism, and where these trends will take us in the future. Using a simulation, it will also use a live example on how to best interact within the paradigm of Chinese capitalism.
