Capitalism only reached the Far East in the last hundred years or so. Since then, a model of successful Chinese capitalism has prevailed over 50 million ethnic Chinese in the economies of East and Southeast Asia. 1. What cultural factors lie behind Chinese entrepreneurship, especially among the Singaporean Chinese community? 2. What is the place of the Chinese work ethic in the light of biblical Christian values? Do these ideologies clash, or, what common ground do they share? Clive Lim’s book aims to tackle these questions with a close look at Chinese history and culture, as well as the theological basis of entrepreneurship. Case studies of 12 contemporary Singaporean Chinese entrepreneurs provide hands-on perspectives of the challenges of taking the entrepreneurial plunge.
