Abstract

The increasing acceptance of guanxi as a way to reduce uncertainty and risk in business dealings is explored. Guanxi, commonly practiced in China, is a form of social network of personal connections. Moreover, this paper suggests that guanxi has become a universal practice. It is not only a preferred way of doing business in China, but also in markets and conditions where certainty and legal transparency are still in dire need.
