Since 1945, the liberal-democratic model of capitalism spread across the globe, ultimately prevailing over communism. Over the past two decades, a new statist-authoritarian model has begun diffusing across East Asia. Rather than rejecting capitalism, authoritarian leaders harness it to uphold their rule. Based on extensive research of East Asia's largest corporations and sovereign wealth funds, this book argues that the most aggressive version of this model does not belong to China. Rather, it can be found in Malaysia and Singapore. Although these countries are small, the implications are profound because one-third of all countries in the world possess the same type of regime. With an increasing number of these authoritarian regimes establishing sovereign wealth funds, their ability to intervene in the corporate sectors of other countries is rapidly expanding.

Fortune Makers analyzes and brings to light the distinctive practices of business leaders who are the future of the Chinese economy. These leaders oversee not the old state-owned enterprises, but private companies that have had to invent their way forward out of the wreckage of an economy in tatters following the Cultural Revolution.
Outside of brand names such as Alibaba and Lenovo, little is known, even by the Chinese themselves, about the people present at the creation of these innovative businesses. Fortune Makers provides sharp insights into their unique styles--a distinctive blend of the entrepreneur, the street fighter, and practices developed by the Communist Party--and their distinctive ways of leading and managing their organizations that are unlike anything the West is familiar with.
When Peter Drucker published Concept of the Corporation in 1946, he revealed what made large American corporations tick. Similarly, when Japanese companies emerged as a global force in the 1980s, insightful analysts explained the practices that brought Japan's economy out of the ashes--and what managers elsewhere could learn to compete with them. Now, based on unprecedented access, Fortune Makers allows business leaders in the United States and the rest of the West to understand the essential character and style of Chinese corporate life and its dominant players, whose businesses are the foundation of the domestic Chinese market and are now making their mark globally.
Agradecer a China todas sus aportaciones y su generosidad es sin duda un acto de justicia. Especialmente para Pedro Nueno, profesor de dirección de empresas y autor de este libro, quien ha encontrado en este país el mejor aliado para difundir por el mundo la enseñanza universitaria y para fundar varias escuelas de negocios que han contribuido al desarrollo económico y social en diversos países.
El autor reflexiona sobre las razones por las que China es el único país capaz de cuestionar la hegemonía de los Estados Unidos. Gracias, China es el resultado de estas reflexiones y un análisis de un país que no deja de sorprendernos por su capacidad de generar trabajo, su contribución al desarrollo tecnológico, sus rutas comerciales, la potenciación de servicios como la sanidad, el turismo especializado, la banca y los servicios financieros, entre muchos otros aspectos destacables.
Un libro sobre el pasado reciente, el presente y el futuro del gigante asiático, cuyo rumbo puede darnos algunas pistas de lo que sucederá: apertura a la inversión extranjera, con ritmos constantes de crecimiento, corrigiendo posibles desequilibrios. Si esta tendencia se mantiene, concluye el autor, tarde o temprano China se convertirá en lo que ya todos sospechamos: la primera economía del mundo y una potencia difícil de superar.
