The politics of wealth distribution in Hong Kong

Richard CULLEN, Richard Stanley SIMMONS

    Research output: Journal PublicationsJournal Article (refereed)

    Abstract

    A leading US politician, Tip O’Neill, famously argued that “all politics is local”. Despite the deep political interest taken by Beijing in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), this claim still largely holds true in Hong Kong. For example, the way Hong Kong political figures conduct themselves is what will most shape the outcome of the Legislative Council (LegCo) elections later this year. And perhaps no aspect of politics is more “local” than the way a government taxes - and then spends its revenue.
