Confucius has made a comeback in China, and, scholar Daniel Bell believes it has the potential to be a beneficial force in the rest of the world. Bell’s writing on what he describes as China’s meritocracy has stirred heated debate among academic circles. Drawing on a new book Just Hierarchy: Why Social Hierarchies Matter in China and the World, Bell and WANG Pei argue that Confucius-inspired hierarchies can help deal with the ongoing health crisis and other modern global challenges. CKGSB Professor Wang Jianbao, meanwhile, argues that Confucian ethics can help drive great business.
