A timely and controversial discussion of the way that China's emerging business financing structures are outperforming those in the West
The phrase "Made in China" is ubiquitous, and China's status as a consumer of everything from natural resources to advanced technology is well established, but how did it get there? Looking at the financial drivers of the country's phenomenal growth, in particular, the high-risk venture capital and private equity finance currently feeding the entrepreneurship and innovation that is positioning China at the forefront of tomorrow's industries, Betting On China sheds much needed light on the poorly understood, often disregarded subject of how China became a global power.

The book looks at how the Chinese approach to financing new enterprises is changing the shape of development, not only in the world's fastest growing economy, but around the world. Written by a leading business and finance consultant based in Beijing, Betting On China explores these and other crucial questions, providing compelling, often provocative answers.
