The history of businesses from the West going to invest or work in Asia is a long one and can be told as much in quotes as anything else. Here are some of the most informative and interesting.
“America needs China to buy her Treasury bills; and China needs America to buy her exports. They are like two drunken giants leaning on each other. Yet a sober reckoning of some sorts seems inevitable; and it is difficult to see how both can be winners.” Sean O'Grady
“Some people think that Japan's success is due to cartels and collaboration. It is not. In the industries in which Japan is internationally successful, it has many fiercely competitive local rivals.” Michael Porter
“We in the West have a choice. Either we concede the argument that China, in the 5,000 years of recorded human history, has been a much more successful and durable culture than America or Western Europe and is now reclaiming its natural position of global leadership. Or we stop denying the rivalry between the Chinese and Western models and start thinking seriously about how Western capitalism can be reformed to have a better chance of winning.” Anatole Kaletsky
“We had better get used to Chinese and Indian ideas coming to influence ours: on the environment, on financial services, on corporate governance and so on. We had better get used to great scientific research coming not from Europe or North America but from Asia. We had better get used to ideas about society … coming from other parts of the world. It will be thrilling but also frightening—and maybe for those of us in the comfortable West, just a little humbling.” Hamish McRae
