David Meyer is Senior Lecturer in Management at Olin Business School, Washington University in St. Louis, teaching international business, with a focus on Asia. Prior to this he was Professor of Sociology & Urban Studies at Brown University. His publications include five books and monographs and over fifty articles and book chapters. His book, Hong Kong as a Global Metropolis (Cambridge University Press, 2000), interpreted that city as the pivot of Asian business networks. More recent publications have dealt with the transformation of Hong Kong as a financial center, job mobility of financiers coming to Hong Kong, network governance at the State Banks of China, the banking networks of Asian financial centers, and private wealth management in Asia. His studies of Shenzhen in China’s financial center networks and of global exchanges in the high frequency trading (HFT) nexus will come out in 2015. Current research looks at HFT in Hong Kong and Singapore.
