Honglou Fortune: Wealth for Generations (Wiley Investment Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Most economic writings fail to impress readers as they are often obscure and abstract. However, Honglou Fortune is the complete opposite. Using the characters from Honglou Meng, it conveys the true essence of wealth management through the simplest language. Honglou Fortune makes learning these concepts a joy and a pleasure to read. Even those who are not interested in wealth management will enjoy this book as a well-written literary piece.

Wang Biao, Deputy Editor-in-chief, Wealth Management Weekly

Honglou Fortune cleverly depicts how the women in Honglou Meng engage in investment and wealth generation through techniques used in managing the household. The author, Rena He Hanxi, graduated with top honors from Fudan University's School of Economics. With a strong foundation in economics, she offers rare and valuable insight into the investment and financial schools of thought.

—Zhang Jun, Professor, Fudan University School of Economics, Director, China Centre for Economic Research
