BEIJING, Nov. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- "Corporate China 2.0" is a candid book that analyzes China's economic success and explains why great firms are vital for its future. Drawn from Dr. LIU's research on corporate finance and the Chinese economy, he maintains that the sheer size of Chinese firms' wealth is not sufficient to secure the future. Rather, the rise of great firms - those with sustainable, high return on invested capital (ROIC) - will lay the foundation for China's successful economic transformation. Dr. LIU maintains that "big" firms mean little for corporate China, especially in the context of China's transition from an investment-led economy to an efficiency-driven one.
The book addresses critical questions surrounding this transformation and the future of China:
- How can corporate China transform from "big" to "brilliant"?
- What institutional changes should occur to promote entrepreneurship and foster great firms?
- What qualities do great Chinese firms (i.e. Huawei, Alibaba and Xiaomi) possess?
The book discusses the internal and external impediments that have led to lack of great companies in China. It also suggests institutional conditions that can foster the rise of great Chinese companies, including reversing the government's obsession with GDP, reforming the financial system, and promoting entrepreneurship.
Policy makers, investors, corporate executives, MBA students and scholars will appreciate the numerous case studies that are included in the book. They illustrate the endeavors made by Chinese entrepreneurs at the grassroots level and highlight what makes a successful Chinese company.
