The China-Africa alliance
Africa is critically important to China’s global strategy, for a number of reasons: the continent’s geopolitical importance; its large, untapped market; and its abundance of natural resources.

Australian banks well positioned to weather the financial crisis
In comparison to the battered banks elsewhere, Australia’s ‘big four’ banks have been “holding up very well” relative to their counterparts in the US and Europe, which have either filed for bankruptcy or have sought government bailouts, says John Schubert, chairman of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, the country’s biggest lender by market capitalisation.
Global outlook: big spenders and penny-pinchers
In the US, extravagance is a normal way of life. In China, it is a sin. Such contrasting consumer psyche between the two economies needs to be evened out before a sustained recovery of the post-bubble global economy can be achieved in the longer run, says Stephen Roach, chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia.
Targetting Africa: The case for investment
Africa is so diverse, with its variety of countries and resources, that almost any type of business in the world could take advantage of the continents economic growth. That was the view of panellists at the INSEAD Leadership Summit 2008.

Shell CEO van der Veer: Carbon dioxide regulation necessary to make the markets work
If governments do not intervene, industries will meet the growing demands for energy in the cheapest way possible, and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions will increase. That puts Jeroen van der Veer, CEO of Royal Dutch Shell plc, one of the worlds leading petroleum companies, in an odd position: a leading capitalist campaigning for more government regulation.
The Middle Kingdom: Civilisation state or nation state?
China is a conundrum: past, present and possibly the future. Even as it is on course to overshadow the US as the next dominant economic superpower, author Martin Jacques argues that it will never become a Western-style society, but will likely remain highly distinctive.
Coping with Copenhagen: the business implications
The Copenhagen Climate Summit (COP 15) began on December 7, 2009, on the heels of the pirating of the East Anglia University Climatic Research Unit's email exchanges, and calls of climate sceptics to re-examine the scientific basis for undertaking actions to limit greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions originating from human activity.
‘Incredible consensus’ for regulatory reforms among G20, but political will weakening
In the face of the impending global financial meltdown a year ago, world leaders found clarity: financial regulatory frameworks needed to be overhauled.
Poorly Made in China: a reality check
Despite being hailed as ‘the world’s workshop’, China’s reputation of being a reliable and responsible manufacturer is far from world-class.

Personal view: some advice to climate scientists on ethics from a finance professor
Climate scientists from the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia have come under fire for alleged data manipulation following the release of thousands of emails and documents.

Planning for the unthinkable
We’ve been so focused on the financial crisis that we’ve neglected to pay attention to other issues, which, if left on the backburner, could upset the status quo. That’s the view of futurist and business strategist Peter Schwartz.
A passion for education
If you build it, they will come -- so the mantra goes -- and that’s exactly what Ng Gim Choo did with the EtonHouse group of schools. And serendipity, as it turned out, would play a key role.
A leap into languages
Some entrepreneurs are born into the role. Such was the case of Tom Adams who, at the age of 30, became CEO for a family business selling language-learning software.

Message to Basel: Another way to avoid bank bailouts
