From the Paper:

"Economic history is more than the study of productivity or statistics. It provides understanding of how distinctive cultures develop and change, and the economic history of Hong Kong seems bound to have created a new identity, and one that people belonging to Hong Kong will continue to value. Brown & Foot's study of Hong Kong reflects a manner of looking at Hong Kong's development in delineated phases or `stages' after 1840. However, if one looks at economics in a society that is dynamic, contained, but also cosmopolitan, thematic approaches may be more helpful."
