Nine visions of capitalism: Unlocking the meanings of wealth creation by Charles Hampden-Turner & Fons Trompenaars

This important book examines the values essential to wealth creation. Some of the world's most successful Capitalist economies have absorbed very different values from those espoused in the Anglo-American system. In East Asia, for example, East and West have mingled in a way rarely seen elsewhere. Hong Kong and Singapore are much influenced by the British, while Taiwan and South Korea are much influenced by the USA. Nine visions of capitalism suggests that this holds the clue to their competitiveness. While many economies have only one cultural context, they have two and can switch between them. Context switching is vital to commerce in general since the views of producers and consumers, owners and operators, management and labour are far enough apart to be considered opposites. Nine visions of capitalism examines nine very different forms of free enterprise, all of them effective. It begins with the Anglo- American Linear-Active Model and explores what happens when a winning combination is taken too far, before considering in detail the values that make China, the fastest growing economy in world history, Singapore, the privately owned Mittelstand business2business companies of Germany, and the Cambridge Phenomenon: the new economy that is transforming universities and centres of knowledge in a sleepy British market town, global centres of wealth creation. Nations that are already affluent must innovate or face decline. Nearly everything can be made more cheaply in the developing world. Only our endless originality can save us. Only our delight in the process of creation in itself and for itself can make our lives self-fulfilling and meaningful and restore our place in the world. Hampden-Turner and Trompenaars deliver a profound and hopeful message to Western economies in a time of deep pessimism about the future of the global economy.
