Dr Enoch Hsu has been a transfer-pricing economist in China, Hong Kong, and the US since 1999 and was previously an economics professor at Santa Clara University.

The government in Hong Kong has been more focused on global rankings and pleasing big companies than supporting citizens. In one international ranking – happiness – the city has been lagging, and this helps to explain protesters’ anger.

For older Hongkongers used to sacrificing personal liberty for economic advancement, young protesters are wrecking the economy. But for youths, prosperity is merely a means to the pursuit of personal well-being, without which wealth is meaningless.
