Abstract: Asia houses the largest population (International Energy Agency, 2012) and enjoys the highest nominal gross domestic product (GDP) of all continents (International Monetary Fund [IMF], 2013). Asian countries represent some of the world's largest economies: for example, China (2), Japan (3), India (10), South Korea (15), and Indonesia (16) (IMF, 2013). In terms of business interactions, four Asian cities top the list of global office destinations: Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo, and Shanghai (CB Richard Ellis, 2011). Indicative of the progressive dependence of the world's business and economy on Asia, the Academy of Management, a leading management academic association, set ‘West Meets East: Enlightening, Balancing, Transcending’ as its 2011 program theme. The same motivation prompted the Academy of Management Journal (AMJ) to call for a special research forum in 2012 featuring ‘West Meets East: New Concepts and Theories’ in an effort to draw the field's attention to emerging issues in the East.
