Our economic system often features opposing interests; workers who want more pay, capitalists who want more interest, shareholders who want more profits, and landowners who want more rent. In Germany, businesses adopt a different mindset; emphasizing the long term, placing great value on relationships with employees, customers, and suppliers, and commitment to the wider community.

Germany’s small and medium size enterprises (“SMEs”), known as “Mittelstand” range across the country. They are unique to Germany, and the backbone of its strong economy.

In this seminar, Michael Bucher presents several case studies in Germany’s “Mittelstand” and examines their underlying concepts, characteristics, and how they thrive in competitive markets while being socially responsible.

Michael Bucher is currently a freelance researcher/writer for Shanghai Business Review, writing on topics in business, trade, and international relations relating to China.
