Filial piety was recognised as a traditional virtue. Why was it good for business?
In the historical context, investors of capital into business had to overcome two major problems. Firstly, the state had to recognise private ownership of capital. Secondly, debt liability had to remain valid beyond an individual’s life time. In Western countries, the emergence of company law dealt with those two problems, so that the company might be recognised as a “legal person”. During the Ming and Qing dynasties, when China had no company law, through the interaction of the state and local society, the ancestor in south China remarkably stood in for the “legal person”.
Professor David Faure will give this alternative view of the history of filial piety in China under the topic of “Filial Piety and Business Enterprise: Why Is Filial Piety Good For Business?” in the lecture.
