    The Original Edition of Land and the Ruling Class in Hong Kong December 2005 was rated as Editor s Choice Scholarly by Canadian Book Review Annual in September October 2007.The Chinese Edition July 2010 won the 4th Year Hong Kong Book Prize in June 2011 Here s the full review of the Original Edition by Gary Watson from Canadian Book Review Annual Oligopoly pays That s the chief lesson emerging from Alice Poon s excellent survey of Hong Kong s real estate and infrastructure economies Although Hong Kong is often characterized as one of the world s freest economies, it is in fact controlled by a handful of wealthy individuals and companies who stifle rather than encourage competition.Poon dissects the sinews of Hong Kong big money and isolates its key components, those being legislative and legal sway over land and competitive policies Hong Kong s biggest fortunes owe their growth and security to dominance over a wide spectrum of businesses ranging from transport, public utilities, supermarkets, and food distribution to, most importantly, land development Huge amounts of real estate are developed by a handful of large companies who control all aspects of supply, construction, and property management Indeed, the usual hallmarks of classically defined competitive markets are nearly absent instead, Hong Kong s market structure suffers from steep barriers to entry and government policies that serve to bolster the market positions of a half dozen huge conglomerates.The situation of near anarchy for Hong Kong s corporate heavyweights may make for impressive annual reports but does little to relieve Hong Kong s mounting social and economic tensions Poon carefully details how government of the rich, by the rich, for the rich in Hong Kong has damaged civil norms and deprived its population of economic security and well being Not surprisingly, articulate protest groups have lodged forceful criticism of business as usual and gained widespread support, proving that discontent is deep seated and justified.Poon s concise, well argued analysis is one of the few available English language sources on Hong Kong s predicament While Hong Kong s once vigorous and argumentative press has lost its teeth following the takeover, new outlets such as blogs have assumed huge importance as a barricade for free expression and democratic principles With Shanghai rapidly eclipsing Hong Kong as the banking and finance powerhouse for China s breakneck growth, there s a chance that competition may in fact re emerge and make for the kind of popular entrepreneurship long absent in Hong Kong.Gary WatsonCanadian Book Review Annual

    The author merely describe things and putting together There s not enough proof that one incidence is the cause of another I can t see the logic throughout the book Only linking facts together and trying to correlate them, totally tautological

    Really interesting read If you want to know what Hong Kong is about then this is a must read Good insights and details about how the property developers have control in Hong Kong Would be interesting if there was an updated chapter of some of the recent policies in Hong Kong.
