ISBN: 978-1-1180-8714-5
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons

Publication: June 2012

Versions: Hardcover, E-book

Length: 256 pages


Available from:

Betting on China differs from other treatments of China by suggesting a new prism through which to view key aspects of the nation’s rise, present-day workings, and future prospects in the global economy: stocks. More specifically, the stocks of China-operating companies that are listed on the major U.S. stock markets of NASDAQ and the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).

The world’s ongoing bet on China’s reemergence as a major world economy finds a unique and influential transaction point in the American equity marketplace. The World Beyond China has been betting on China, and betting big. Because of the sheer size of these wagers—the money, resources, talent, planning, and ambitions at stake—getting China in a way that is both meaningful and practically useful has become more important than ever before.

Digital Asia: Asia's digitally transforming economies 

Koepp %22Digital Asia%22 image.jpg

Asia, the fastest growing region in the global economy, also stands out for its embrace and development of digital economics. Asia is already home to over half of the world’s online population. Yet the internet penetration rate of its largest economy, China, is under 60% and for India under 40%. These and numerous other findings point to the tremendous near- and long-term potential of Asia's digitally transforming economies.

Clusters of Creativity: Enduring Lessons on Innovation and Entrepreneurship from Silicon Valley and Europe’s Silicon Fen

Clusters of Creativity cover.jpg

ISBN: 978-0-470-85566-9 

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons

Versions: Hardcover, E-book

Publication: April 2003

Length: 296 Pages

Available from:

Like the subject matter it covers, Clusters of Creativity is innovative and original. It breaks with popular interpretations of Silicon Valley and similar regions, which range from the hyperbolically laudatory to the contemptuously dismissive, and takes a critical, objective look at the lessons that these locations provide about innovation and entrepreneurship.

Readable, yet rigorous in its analyses, the book provides a practical and balanced set of perspectives on how the powers of business creativity are fostered and sustained. It focuses not so much on the generations of high technologies but on the motivations and strategies of business leaders who turn revolutionary innovations into commercial realities. Clusters of Creativity demystifies the many enigmas that surround two leading capitals of the modern global economy, providing insights on managing innovation and entrepreneurship that are both eye-opening and broadly applicable to all organizations and industries. The book challenges assumptions, dispels myths, enlightens, inspires, and generally provokes thought. In an age where technology and hyperbole frequently go hand-in-hand, its well-founded insights are all the more refreshing and important.
