About this book

Hong Kong's laissez-faire tradition has crippled attempts to transform it into a more knowledge-intensive economy and this is a lesson with wide applicability. Many emerging economies face innovation bottlenecks, but even some more advanced economies face similar constraints and may benefit from the lessons of its negative example.
