Presenting a thorough analysis of China's outward Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the last quarter of a century - something little explored in the literature - this book explores, the rationale behind its emergence and development. China's outward FDI exhibits unique features in respect of timing, pace and geographical distribution that defy the existing mainstream theories of FDI. China's Offshore Investments uses the framework of a network model of FDI, which is developed by applying economic norms to ideas of networks in business analysis. This network model has been designed specifically by Dexin Yang for the purpose of theorising the changing pattern of FDI in the era of globalisation in general and interpreting China's FDI in particular.
The old lawyer caressed his smoothly shaven chin and gazed out at Joyce Lavillotte from under his shaggy eyebrows, as from the port-holes of a castle, impressing her as being quite as inscrutable of aspect and almost as belligerent. She, flushed and bright-eyed, leaned forward with an appealing air, opposing the resistless vigor of youth to the impassiveness of age.
The purpose of this book is to present the principles of alternative investments in management. The individual chapters provide a detailed analysis of various classes of alternative investments on the financial market. Despite many different definitions of alternative investments, it can be assumed that a classical approach to alternative investments includes hedge funds, fund of funds (FOF), managed accounts, structured products and private equity/venture capital. Alternative investment in keeping with this broad definition is the subject of consideration here. The theoretical part of each chapter is meant to collect, systematize and deepen readers' understanding of a given investment category, while the practical part of each focuses on an analysis of the current state of development of alternative investments on the global market and outlines the prospects of future market development. This book will be a valuable tool for scholars, practitioners and policy-makers alike.
Organizations using idea-management systems or suggestion systems can thrive as creative or innovative systems amid fierce competition, technology advances, and ever-changing customer preference. Yet not all companies use this management tool effectively. It is still a challenge for organizations to sustain their idea-management systems. Managers lack the knowledge of how to build their idea-management systems, and they lack the tools to assess their systems in order to understand how they are benefiting the organization. This book proposes a solution. It helps readers to understand the five building blocks required for sustainable idea-management systems then to use the author's diagnostic tool, sustainability framework, to determine how well a unit or the entire company is performing in regard to each building block of a sustainable idea-management system. By assessing the performance of each sustainability building block, you can identify areas that need improvement, moving your organization toward yielding the true results that an idea-management system brings.
