In Recharging China in War and Revolution, 1882–1955 (Cornell University Press, 2021), Ying Jia Tan explores the fascinating politics of Chinese power consumption as electrical industries developed during seven decades of revolution and warfare. Tan traces this history from the textile-factory power shortages of the late Qing, through the struggle over China's electrical industries during its civil war, to the 1937 Japanese invasion that robbed China of 97 percent of its generative capacity. Along the way, he demonstrates that power industries became an integral part of the nation's military-industrial complex, showing how competing regimes asserted economic sovereignty through the nationalization of electricity. Based on a wide range of published records, engineering reports, and archival collections in China, Taiwan, Japan, and the United States, Recharging China in War and Revolution, 1882–1955 argues that, even in times of peace, the Chinese economy operated as though still at war, constructing power systems that met immediate demands but sacrificed efficiency and longevity. Thanks to generous funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, through The Sustainable History Monograph Pilot, the ebook editions of this book are available as Open Access volumes from Cornell Open (cornellopen.org), archive.org and other repositories. Ying Jia Tan is Assistant Professor at Wesleyan University and works on the history of energy in modern China He is currently working on a second book project on the plastic industry in Chinese East Asia in the twentieth century.  Ghassan Moazzin is an Assistant Professor at the Hong Kong Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences and the Department of History at the University of Hong Kong.

In the late nineteenth century, as much of the world adopted some variant of the gold standard, China remained the most populous country still using silver. Yet China had no unified national currency; there was not one monetary standard but many. Silver coins circulated alongside chunks of silver and every transaction became an "encounter of wits." China and the End of Global Silver, 1873–1937 (Cornell UP, 2020) focuses on how officials, policy makers, bankers, merchants, academics, and journalists in China and around the world answered a simple question: how should China change its monetary system? Far from a narrow, technical issue, Chinese monetary reform is a dramatic story full of political revolutions, economic depressions, chance, and contingency. As different governments in China attempted to create a unified monetary standard in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, the United States, England, and Japan tried to shape the direction of Chinese monetary reform for their own benefit.  Austin Dean argues convincingly that the Silver Era in world history ended owing to the interaction of imperial competition in East Asia and the state-building projects of different governments in China. When the Nationalist government of China went off the silver standard in 1935, it marked a key moment not just in Chinese history but in world history. Austin Dean is Assistant Professor of History at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Siamo nel Settembre 2015 e l'allora ministro dell'economia e delle finanze peruviano, Alonso Segura Vasi, è costretto a cambiare repentinamente i suoi piani per volare a nord dell'equatore. Il motivo pare sia dovuto ad un… diciamo pettegolezzo. Un rumour, direbbero in inglese.In pochi minuti Alonso Segura è già su un jet diretto negli Stati Uniti. E badate bene, il ministro non è diretto alla Casa Bianca, questo non è un incontro tra ufficiali per discutere i rapporti tra le due nazioni. Il volo è verso New York, e gli uffici dove è diretto sono privatissimi, a due passi da Wall Street. Sono gli uffici della MSCI, il famoso fornitore di indici.Il motivo che ha spinto il ministro a mettersi su un volo intercontinentale è esattamente lo stesso che ha spinto i nostri due Yankees a compiere un atto illegale di insider trading: in ballo, ci sono miliardi di dollari.Nel capitolo finale di questa storia, a noi di Bank Station non resta che parlarvi di coloro che sono usciti vincitori dalla crescita di popolarità dei fondi passivi che tracciano gli indici. Ovvero coloro che li creano, gli indici. E decidono quindi chi è fuori… e chi è dentro.Siamo Giammarco Miani, Francesco Namari e Gaia Geraci, and the next stop is...

Between 1949 and 1997, Hong Kong transformed from a struggling British colonial outpost into a global financial capital. Made in Hong Kong: Transpacific Networks and a New History of Globalization (Columbia University Press, 2021) delivers a new narrative of this metamorphosis, revealing Hong Kong both as a critical engine in the expansion and remaking of postwar global capitalism and as the linchpin of Sino-U.S. trade since the 1970s. In Made in Hong Kong, Peter E. Hamilton explores the role of an overlooked transnational Chinese elite who fled to Hong Kong amid war and revolution. Despite losing material possessions, these industrialists, bankers, academics, and other professionals retained crucial connections to the United States. They used these relationships to enmesh themselves and Hong Kong with the U.S. through commercial ties and higher education. By the 1960s, Hong Kong had become a manufacturing powerhouse supplying American consumers, and by the 1970s it was the world's largest sender of foreign students to American colleges and universities. Hong Kong's reorientation toward U.S. international leadership enabled its transplanted Chinese elites to benefit from expanding American influence in Asia and positioned them to act as shepherds to China's reengagement with global capitalism.

Between 1949 and 1997, Hong Kong transformed from a struggling British colonial outpost into a global financial capital. Made in Hong Kong: Transpacific Networks and a New History of Globalization (Columbia University Press, 2021) delivers a new narrative of this metamorphosis, revealing Hong Kong both as a critical engine in the expansion and remaking of postwar global capitalism and as the linchpin of Sino-U.S. trade since the 1970s. In Made in Hong Kong, Peter E. Hamilton explores the role of an overlooked transnational Chinese elite who fled to Hong Kong amid war and revolution. Despite losing material possessions, these industrialists, bankers, academics, and other professionals retained crucial connections to the United States. They used these relationships to enmesh themselves and Hong Kong with the U.S. through commercial ties and higher education. By the 1960s, Hong Kong had become a manufacturing powerhouse supplying American consumers, and by the 1970s it was the world's largest sender of foreign students to American colleges and universities. Hong Kong's reorientation toward U.S. international leadership enabled its transplanted Chinese elites to benefit from expanding American influence in Asia and positioned them to act as shepherds to China's reengagement with global capitalism.

Ci siamo quasi. Il giorno del ribilanciamento degli indici della S&P si fa sempre più vicino.James, nel cercare di convincere Yuanbiao ad aiutarlo nella sua impresa criminale, ripercorre la storia dei fondi passivi, raccontando gli ostacoli che hanno incontrato tra gli investitori e il supporto che hanno invece trovato nella realtà accademica.I primi fondi passivi degli anni 70 e le intuizioni di Jack Bogle. Le ostruzioni degli investitori che bollavano questi fondi come comunisti e non-americani (perché replicare il mercato era un compito da… beh, perdenti). E poi il CAPM, la realtà accademica, Michael Jensen e non solo, che guardavano con scetticismo al mondo dei fondi attivi e con grande interesse a quello dei fondi passivi. I masters of the universe riescono davvero a battere il mercato come millantano? Come ci racconta James, tutto questo comincia a cambiare con la grande recessione del 2007, che spazza via lontano i ricordi dei ritorni strepitosi del mercato pre-crisi e comincia a far scricchiolare il business model dei fondi attivi, che rimaneva dipendente da elevate commissioni.Ma l'ascesa dei fondi passivi passa anche dall'innovazione finanziaria; in questo ambiente di ritorni depressi uno strumento nato negli anni 90 inizia a prendere sempre più piede, facilitando enormemente la crescita del denaro investito nei fondi passivi: gli Exchange Traded Funds. Il terzo capitolo di questa storia passa proprio da questo prodotto, da ciò che lo ha reso così popolare, dalle sue caratteristiche e perché no, anche da un bouquet di fiori!Siamo Giammarco Miani, Francesco Namari e Gaia Geraci, and the next stop is...

Pirates and Publishers: A Social History of Copyright in Modern China (Princeton University Press, 2019) is a detailed historical look at how copyright was negotiated and protected by authors, publishers, and the state in late imperial and modern China. In Pirates and Publishers, Fei-Hsien Wang reveals the unknown social and cultural history of copyright in China from the 1890s through the 1950s, a time of profound sociopolitical changes. Wang draws on a vast range of previously underutilized archival sources to show how copyright was received, appropriated, and practiced in China, within and beyond the legal institutions of the state. Contrary to common belief, copyright was not a problematic doctrine simply imposed on China by foreign powers with little regard for Chinese cultural and social traditions. Shifting the focus from the state legislation of copyright to the daily, on-the-ground negotiations among Chinese authors, publishers, and state agents, Wang presents a more dynamic, nuanced picture of the encounter between Chinese and foreign ideas and customs. Developing multiple ways for articulating their understanding of copyright, Chinese authors, booksellers, and publishers played a crucial role in its growth and eventual institutionalization in China. These individuals enforced what they viewed as copyright to justify their profit, protect their books, and crack down on piracy in a changing knowledge economy. As China transitioned from a late imperial system to a modern state, booksellers and publishers created and maintained their own economic rules and regulations when faced with the absence of an effective legal framework. Exploring how copyright was transplanted, adopted, and practiced, Pirates and Publishers demonstrates the pivotal roles of those who produce and circulate knowledge. Fei-Hsien Wang is associate professor at the Department of History, Indiana University Bloomington. She is a historian of modern China, with a particular interest in how information, ideas, and practices were produced, transmitted, and consumed across different societies in East Asia. Her research has revolved around the relations between knowledge, commerce, and political authority after 1800. She is Associate Editor of the American Historical Review. Ghassan Moazzin is an Assistant Professor at the Hong Kong Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences and the Department of History at the University of Hong Kong.

Pirates and Publishers: A Social History of Copyright in Modern China (Princeton University Press, 2019) is a detailed historical look at how copyright was negotiated and protected by authors, publishers, and the state in late imperial and modern China. In Pirates and Publishers, Fei-Hsien Wang reveals the unknown social and cultural history of copyright in China from the 1890s through the 1950s, a time of profound sociopolitical changes. Wang draws on a vast range of previously underutilized archival sources to show how copyright was received, appropriated, and practiced in China, within and beyond the legal institutions of the state. Contrary to common belief, copyright was not a problematic doctrine simply imposed on China by foreign powers with little regard for Chinese cultural and social traditions. Shifting the focus from the state legislation of copyright to the daily, on-the-ground negotiations among Chinese authors, publishers, and state agents, Wang presents a more dynamic, nuanced picture of the encounter between Chinese and foreign ideas and customs.

Il secondo episodio della nostra saga sul passive management e gli index providers.Il ribilanciamento dell’indice è in arrivo e James e Yuanbiao sono pronti ad anticipare le mosse del mercato. Il piano è chiaro: James, utilizzando la sua posizione di insider alla S&P DJI, con l’aiuto di Yuanbiao, scommetterà sulle aziende che verranno incluse ed escluse dall’indice prima che la notizia arrivi al mercato, per tirar su una fortuna. Ma c’è qualcosa che tormenta ancora Yuanbiao: com’è possibile che il solo ribilanciamento di un indice, cioè il cambiamento di una semplice lista di aziende, abbia un impatto così grande sui prezzi delle azioni, tale che se anticipato possa fruttare milioni? Il loro piano si basa sull’idea che una volta ribilanciati gli indici, i fondi passivi saranno costretti a ribilanciare a loro volta i loro investimenti comprando e vendendo azioni. Il quesito che si pone Yuanbiao, quindi, non è scontato: ci sono davvero così tanti soldi investiti nei fondi passivi? Così tanti da influenzare il prezzo delle azioni che comprano e vendono?Per rispondere a queste domande vi trasporteremo attraverso anni di storia economica e finanziaria. Attraverso i primi fondi negli anni 70, le intuizioni di Jack Bogle, e le teorie finanziarie di Harry Markowitz, Jack Treynor, William Sharpe, e Michael Jensen.Quindi allacciate le cinture, e tenetevi forte.

In Global Trade in the Nineteenth Century: The House of Houqua and the Canton System (Cambridge University Press, 2016), John D. Wong examines the Canton trade networks that helped to shape the modern world through the lens of the prominent Chinese merchant Houqua, whose trading network and financial connections stretched from China to India, America and Britain. In contrast to interpretations that see Chinese merchants in this era as victims of rising Western mercantilism and oppressive Chinese traditions, Houqua maintained a complex balance between his commercial interests and those of his Western counterparts, all in an era of transnationalism before the imposition of the Western world order. The success of Houqua and Co. in configuring its networks in the fluid context of the early nineteenth century remains instructive today, as the contemporary balance of political power renders the imposition of a West-centric world system increasingly problematic, and requires international traders to adapt to a new world order in which China, once again, occupies center stage. John D. Wong is associate professor at the School of Modern Languages and Cultures and the Hong Kong Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Hong Kong. His research focuses on the flow of people, goods, capital and ideas. With a particular interest in Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta area, he explores how such flow connected the region to the Chinese political center in the north as well as their maritime partners in the South China Sea and beyond. He is the co-convenor of a new collaborative research project titled "Delta on the Move: The Becoming of the Greater Bay Region, 1700 – 2000." Ghassan Moazzin is an Assistant Professor at the Hong Kong Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences and the Department of History at the University of Hong Kong.
