Winning and Losing in Bike-Sharing Is Ultimately About Utilization (Pt 4 of 4)

This the fourth and final article on “assets in the wild” as a powerful new economic engine, most visibly manifested in bike-sharing in China. My basic argument in Part 1, 2, and 3 is that the meteoric rise of Mobike, Ofo and other bike-sharing companies is because of their pioneering use of assets that can […]

How New Retail is Colliding With Bike-Sharing in China​ (Pt 3 of 4)

In Part 1 and Part 2, I argued there is something new and powerful happening at Mobike, Ofo and bike-sharing in China. These companies and their presence in consumers’ lives have grown too fast. We are witnessing something new and important. My explanation for this is “assets in the wild”. That bike-sharing companies have shown […]

想要真正的中国国企改革?那就让百威英博和疯狂的巴西人掌管雪花啤酒

目前,百威英博正在进行对SAB米勒1,040亿美元的巨额收购。为此,他们商定出售雪花啤酒49%的股份。这是为获得中国监管机构批准的先发制人的做法。如此一来,准国企华润雪花啤酒就将彻底变为(华润创业所有的)国有企业。 这实在令人扼腕叹息。

For the Record, Uber Didn’t Lose in China.

Uber’s sale of its China business to local rival Didi Chuxing is often referred to as a surrender. I think the numbers speak for themselves. Uber invested 18 months and about $2 billion in China. They walked away with 17% of DidiChuxing, and therefore 17% of the world’s largest on-demand transportation market. This equity stake […]

解读现代中国——我最喜爱的地图

上(下)文所示的“集群”地图最初由麦肯锡公司绘制。我认为,它充分说明了现代中国的三个重要特点。 第1点:今天的中国由一系列城市集群组成,而不是一片大陆 今天的中国尚未形成一体化的大陆经济,不像美国那样,拥有无缝连通全国各地的基础设施。未来可能会这样,但目前尚未实现。

I Applied Warren Buffett’s 25-5 Rule to My Career – And It Totally Worked.

五个问题解读滴滴、摩拜和中国的新型小物品租赁业务(第二部分)

在第一部分,我提出中国不存在新型“共享经济”——这就是中国新企业(如滴滴、摩拜,以及针对篮球、充电宝和雨伞的小物品租赁企业)为什么如此令人困惑。然而,有一件事更加引人注目:在使用和便捷度方面出现了新的数字颠覆者。第一部分的关键点包括: Ÿ忘记“共享经济”一词。 Ÿ转而思考,究竟是“使用经济”还是“占有经济”。 Ÿ新的数字工具和流程(如智能手机)能够对需求或供给,或同时对二者产生颠覆效应。 Ÿ在中国所出现的,是使用和便捷度方面的典型颠覆现象。
