Abstract

This article examines Confucian values and their effect on family business succession. Several implications are drawn. One of these is that Confucianism places family business in a social context in which the interpersonal relationships inside and outside the business family are subject to a variety of environmental influences. Examining family firms in their social context provides more complete understanding of the dynamics underlying choices and activities in family firms.
