Présentation de l'éditeur

"One hour with this book will make you an expert on business in China." - Dick Gephardt, Majority-Minority Leader, U.S. House of Representatives, 1989-2002

“This book simplifies China in a very elegant and smart way. These distinguished authors tell you clearly what you most need to know right now.” - James McGregor, author of One Billion Customers: Lessons from the Front Lines of Doing Business in China

"For most people, the intellectual return on time spent reading this book is almost unrivaled." - ValueWalk

This is the China book for everyone - whether an expert or novice. It can be read in an hour and gives you most of what you need to know about China business today - and its increasing impact on the rest of the world.

This "speed-read" book is the distilled knowledge of two Peking University business professors with over 30 years of experience on the ground in China and the emerging markets. According to authors Jeffrey Towson and Jonathan Woetzel, "if we had the undivided attention of someone from Ohio, Brighton or Lima for just one hour, this little book is what we would say."

Author Jonathan Woetzel is a senior partner of McKinsey & Company. He opened McKinsey's Shanghai location in 1995 and has been resident since then. He currently the global leader of its Cities Special Initiative and the Asia-based Director of the McKinsey Global Institute. He has led many of the Firm’s most significant projects in China including the first major international listing of a Chinese company and the development of the economic plans for the cities of Shanghai, Wuhan, Shenzhen, Xian and Harbin among others. He co-chairs the Urban China Initiative along with Tsinghua University and Columbia University to catalyze the next stage of China’s urbanization.

Author Jeffrey Towson is a private equity investor, professor and best-selling author. His area of expertise is developing economy investing and cross-border strategies – primarily US-China deals in healthcare and consumer products. He was previously Head of Direct Investments for Middle East North Africa and Asia Pacific for Prince Alwaleed, nicknamed by Time magazine the “Arabian Warren Buffett” and arguably the world’s first private global investor.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Highly informative and entertaining read. Edutainment made in China. 6 janvier 2014
Par  - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The book offers exactly what both authors promise: It decodes the six mega trends that currently drive and will continue to drive China's future. Easy to read. Easy to remember.

Each chapter is condensed into a handful of key points/statements which help the reader to understand and remember the underlying mega trend. Additionally, the utilisation of real entrepreneurial success stories gives immediate understanding how people rode the respective mega trend while also offering casual "edutainment" and a rare "look behind the curtain".

China buffs/insiders will eventually want to read more about each of the mega trends. If the book would claim to be exhaustive, this would be a acceptable criticism, but this is - as stated - not the objective of the book.

Having studied, worked, lived several years in China now, I still very much appreciated this clear and concise 60-90min read to sharpen my understanding about the six mega trends.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great short yet very insightful read for everybody interested in doing business in China 6 janvier 2014

This book is a must-read for everybody interested in doing business in China. It really shows the impact of the megatrends currently driving China's economy for business by showing not just numbers and facts, but telling stories of Chinese companies and how exactly they succeeded by riding on this trends. A very practical and concise read (the one hour promise is met).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Background, Easily Read and Digested 17 octobre 2014
Par Loyd E. Eskildson - Publié sur
The author contend that six megatrends drive China today. The first is its need to urbanize a billion people - 300 million moving to cities now, and 350 million more to follow. China has 160 cities with populations exceeding one million and 14 with over five million. Increasingly these cities are becoming linked to create urban areas with 30+ million, the size of many European nations. Soon there will be one billion urban dwellers in China, creating enormous demands for infrastructure and resources such as clean water. Yet, 40% of China's rivers are seriously polluted - thus, China plans to invest $636 billion in water-related projects through 2020. Meanwhile, real estate investment hit $980 billion in 2011, up from $120 billion in 2003. China's leading developer, built 80,000 apartments in over 25 cities in 2012 alone, with sales of about $16 billion.

The second is huge manufacturing scale - it has increased enormously over the past 30 years and is worth $2.2 trillion/year now in value-added terms. It makes 80% of the world's air-conditioners, 90% of PCs, about 70% of the world's solar panels, 90% of our mobile phones, and 65% of our shoes. Manufacturing comprises 40% of China's economy and employs 130 million directly. The most global Chinese company is Huawei, which began by developing lower-priced equipment for second- and third-tier cities in China, avoiding competition from major global manufacturers. It then expanded abroad into less-developed areas in Southeast Asia, Africa, and Eastern Europe. By 2012 it was the world's top telecommunications-equipment company, earning two-thirds of its $36 billion outside China.

Third - rising Chinese consumers. Some 300 million Chinese have entered the middle class already, and another 200 million are expected to do so by 2026. The Asia-Pacific region will account for two-thirds of the world's middle class by 2030. Tyson Foods' China operations can process over 3 million chickens/week; Chinese chicken consumption is expected to increase 18%/year for the next five years. In 2013, a Chinese firm spent $7.1 billion to buy America's Smithfield, the world's largest pork producer and processor.

The fourth - lots of money, over $15 trillion in bank deposits and growing by $2 trillion/year. Foreign-exchange reserves total $3.5 trillion, and its yearly trade surplus with the U.S. has grown from $10 million in 1985 to over $300 billion in 2012.

Number five - China is becoming a brainpower behemoth, thanks to doubling spending on education and increasing the number of college graduates 7X since 1998 - 1 million in 1998, 7.5 million in 2012. China accounted for 2.2% of world R&D spending in 2012, 12.8% in 2009, and is now second to the U.S. Huawei has a 150,000 person work-force, with 68,000 in R&D; Cisco has 66,000, with 21,000 in R&D. The bad news is that 25% of 2012 college graduates failed to land a job by the end of the year.

Last - China has more Internet users than any other country (550 million), and that number is expected to explode.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Curiously Uncritical 17 septembre 2014
Par C. George Fascino - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
The economic data is informative and presented clearly, but, overall, the book is curiously uncritical. For example, the authors only dedicate about 20 seconds (or two short paragraphs) to IP theft and no time on internet censorship. This wouldn't necessarily be an issue given the purported apolitical nature of the book, but two of the six "mega-trends" concern these issues: Chinese "brainpower" and internet use. It's like discussing home run hitting trends in the 1990s, but not mentioning steroid abuse. Also, the quality of the book is poor. The font isn't crisp and--although printed on demand in Kentucky--has that made-in-China feel.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 simple but convincing 20 avril 2014

Personally I like reading this category books with numbers and bullet points. You'll spend probably 2 hours to go through all the stories if you like the illustrations of it as I do.
