21/04/2018 - Investing in the new economy
Back in 1983, a cover article in Time, introduced the term"The New Economy", to describe the transition from a manufacturing and industrial based economy to a new technology based economy. Since then the new economy has spawned many new companies, business, technologies and booms and busts in several of them. So what does the new economy mean today and how can we benefit from it and invest in it. Peter Lewis went to see Dr. Billy Mak, Professor of Finance & Decision Sciences, Hong Kong Baptist University.
