Developmental Diasporas in China and India: a reconsideration of conventional capital

Download: Audio, Video, Slides

Speaker(s): Professor Kellee Tsai

Recorded on 14 November 2012 in Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House.

Comparisons of China and India’s economic development typically focus on either the nature of state intervention in the economy or the role of foreign direct investment (FDI). Yet this ignores a vast network of informal financial flows generated by remittances and ethnic investors residing abroad.

Kellee Tsai is a professor in the Department of Political Science, Johns Hopkins University.
