Inhaltsangabe: Hong Kong and Southeast Asia are home to five hundred million people, yet their economies are dominated by only fifty families whose interests range from banking to real estate, shipping to sugar, gambling to lumber. At their peak, eight of the world’s two dozen richest men were Southeast Asian, but their names would not be familiar to most regular readers of The Wall Street Journal. A complex mythology surrounds these billionaires, but in Asian Godfathers, Joe Studwell finds that the facts are even more remarkable than the myths. Studwell has spent fifteen years as a reporter in the region, and he marshals his unprecedented sources to paint intimate and revealing portraits of the men who control Southeast Asia. Studwell also provides us with a rich and deep understanding of the broader historic, economic, and political influences that have shaped Southeast Asia over the past 150 years. Asian Godfathers is a riveting and illuminating book that lifts the curtain on a world of staggering secrecy and hypocrisy, and reveals for the first time who the leaders of one of the planet’s most important and tumultuous markets really are, why they got to the top, and how they keep themselves there.

Buchbeschreibung Viva Books/Profile Books, 2008. Softcover. Buchzustand: New. First edition. The economies of Hong Kong and south-east Asia are dominated by only forty or fifty families. Their interests range from banking to property, from shipping to sugar, from gambling to lumber. At their peak, eight of the world?s two dozen richest families were south-east Asian, yet they are largely unknown outside the region. A complex mythology surrounds them, one which informs Asian views on culture, entrepreneurialism and economics. In this explosive account, Joe Studwell finds that the facts are even more remarkable than the myths, as he lifts the lid on a world of hypocrisy, power and enormous wealth. This tour of Asia?s richest includes Hong Kong?s Li Kashing, the king of the billionaires; Stanley Ho, casino mogul, father of seventeen and flamboyant ballroom dancer; Malaysia?s Lim Goh Tong, creator of the vast Genting Highlands casino; Indonesian born-again Christian bankers; and the Philippines? Lucio Tan, a tobacco billionaire who started out as a janitor. Through the hidden lives of these mysterious and fascinating men, Studwell explores the broader economic and political issues facing a region of 500 million people: how the Asian tycoons took such a strong hold over their local economies, how they survived the Asian financial crisis that began in 1997, and what their endurance teaches us about the real state of the countries they live in.

How to be a godfather, #2, Core cash flow ? How to be a godfather, #3: Structuring an organisation ? chief slaves and gweilo running dogs ?
