Published in 1999. This book provides an analytical framework of the way culture influences entrepreneurial ethics and trust in a semi-industrial society. Culture provides rules and norms that govern societal behaviour. Yet it differs greatly in the way it influences economic performance across societies.

The book, which embodies both general and micro-institutional perspective on economic behaviour, addresses the core question, how does culture influence entrepreneurial ethics and trust in a developing society?
