Attitudes toward Asian investment


Hugh Stephens, associate faculty member in the School of Business has just published an article in China-US Focus, a New York based online publication, on the topic Attitudes to Asian Investment: It All Depends on the Context

Stephens examines why this might be, disaggregating attitudes toward Chinese investment from Asian investment generally.

Finally he compares attitudes toward Chinese investment in the USA and Canada and draws some conclusions for the future.
