Academic Notes

From time to time readers ask about my academic work. Here are some recent highlights:

I was interviewed recently for an article based in part on my new book, From Che to China, by, of all places, Inside Fashion, an industry magazine published in Hong Kong. An English language version of the article can be found here and a Chinese language version can be found here.

I was interviewed and quoted extensively in Dan Schwartz’s new book on Private Equity and Dan named me to his “Class of 2010 in Private Equity and Venture Capital.” A link to the text can be found here. My comments to Dan were largely based on a paper I completed recently on organized labor and private equity which can be found here. It will appear as a chapter in a book edited by Peer Zumbansen (York) and Cynthia Williams (Illinois) soon.

I will be presenting my work on the financial markets with economist Jennifer Kuan, a research fellow at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research, at a conference on the current economic crisis to be held at the New School next week. You can learn more about the conference here. Jenny, in turn, will be presenting our paper at the Industry Studies Conference at the University of Illinois Chicago soon after that. You can learn more about that conference here. And you can access a draft of our paper here.
