Betting on China
Based on his deep understanding acquired through years of experience in China, Rob Koepp provides remarkably keen observations inEddie Wang, former President of China Minsheng Banking Corp.
Rob Koepp’s book is an entertaining and well written romp through the new Wild West of US listed Chinese companies. But it is also a nuanced look at the costs and benefits to both countries of continued interaction at corporate and capital market levels and highlights the challenges facing public oversight bodies on both sides of the Pacific. At the time of the book’s publication both Chinese and U.S. regulators are undertaking reviews that could threaten the nascent, cross-border, public equity market relationship, and Koepp’s book illustrates the concerns and approaches of each side. This is well worth a read whether you are a student of capital markets or just someone trying to understand the risks and benefits of ‘betting on China.’Ian Charles Stewart, Co-founder of Wired magazine, venture philanthropist, and Beijing resident
