Interlocking Global Business Systems: The Restructuring of Industries, Economies and Capital Markets

By Edward B. Flowers; Thomas P. Chen et al. | Go to book overview

by firms that hire new graduates and are required to train them.

Firm-supplied financial skills development is inefficient and expensive. It could be replaced by a more economic system according to the enterprise managers we interviewed in Shanghai. 8 We believe the solution to this training problem lies in finding a means by which the firms needing financial skills can compensate China's teachers for generating these skills. At present, the lines of communication and financing of skill development have not been developed to meet this need in Shanghai.


CONCLUSION

In conclusion, the solution to the problems of a shortage of financial skills in China lies in addressing the cause of the shortfall. Supply induced shortages for occupations such as accountants, auditors and investment managers can be handled by focusing on training. Shortages stemming from demand breakdowns for occupations such as traders, securities analysts and bankers cannot be addressed through training but instead require a focus on the constraints that prevent them from flourishing.
