Asian innovators yield higher shareholder returns

In the Chinese word for crisis ‘weiji’ (危机), ‘wei’ 危 means danger, and ‘ji’ 机 means opportunity. Crisis does not have the same meaning in China as in Western society.

This mentality can be clearly seen in the way that China has tackled the global financial crisis.
