**CANCELED** The Wall Street of China: Making Movies in the Middle Kingdom
Christina Yao, Director of
THE EVENT ON 4/8/11 IS CANCELED -- THIS EVENT IS BEING RESCHEDULED. MORE DETAILS WILL BE ANNOUNCED.
Why is a business group one century ago relevant to our understanding of China today? Is the same private entrepreneurship in China from that era experiencing a revival now? Through what magic formula did the Shanxi merchants, the most powerful merchant group in pre-modern China, dominate the finance and commerce worlds of China for 500 years?
Stanford alumnus and award-winning director of "Empire of Silver," Christina Yao, will share the insights and research that inspired her to make a film about the Wall Street of China.
In this presentation/roundtable discussion, speakers will also talk about the socio-economic significance of the banking system in Shanxi, the business culture of the Shanxi merchants, and the design and the making of the movie.
