China’s per capita gross domestic product grew nearly 13 times between 1980 and 2010 according to data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Economic Research Service.

On the doorstep of this vast superpower sits Hong Kong, a world-class financial, marketing and technical center.

“Don’t ignore the scale of Asian growth“
As you can see, James Weir has his eyes on Asia and thinks that maybe the economic growth underway on the Asian continent might be something worth paying attention to. James likes the view from the ground (as opposed to, say, the pleasant view from the Guinness Atkinson office in…
