The book also has several case studies of Chinese entrepreneurs. Well, some successful ones, at least. He doesn't really talk much about those who have failed. But this is scarcely any different than all those breezy business books about starting up in the US. Few of those ever chronicle the many American failures. Capitalism does have a downside, in the human toll of these failures, in any country where it is practised.
There are three other problems:
1. the non-comparative nature of the topic took away the author's potential advangage of a cultural perspective;
2. it under-estimates the structural change in China's institutional reform, especially in recent years;
3. the focus on Institution hole and double entrepreneurship blurs the theoretical thrust of the argument of "institution - entrepreneurship - development".
