Business and life in Wuhu, Anhui, PRC

In the lecture on October 27 on Chinese style business, we had a high-level economic discussion of China's rising economy, as well as some discussion of business practices.

For a first-hand account of a westerner's view of China, take a look at the blog on The Global Silk Road. This blog is written by Brian Hilton, who I've seen frequently at annual meetings of the International Society for the Systems Sciences.

In particular, read the entry on Welcoming WuHu: Anhui Province??, China??. Wuhu City Online says that that it has a "population of whole city is 2,202,600 and that of downtown is 658,800". This isn't a city on the scale of Shanghai or Beijing that makes the daily newspaper, but Brian's description certainly names companies that you might see as prominent in the future.

Brian is co-author of a book titled "The Global Silk Road" that you can view on Amazon.

2006/11/27 Enabling blogs for posting assignments

I have enabled the blog function on rendez.org, so that students can post assignments on their own page.

Each assignment handed in for credit can be posted as a separate blog entry. If you check off the Groups ... Audience ... Stadia-2006 ... box, your classmates will see the entry as new (i.e. top of the list) when they log on.

In addition, comments can be attached to each entry. As a group, we need to decide how public comments should be.
