Mobility and Agency: Private Sector Development in Rural Central China
This article shows that the variation in private sector outcomes in central China is the result of a complex mosaic of path dependencies, historical contingencies, government interventions, geography and the availability of nonlocal capital and skilled labor. Among these various factors, the roles of human resource mobility and local agency stand out. Given the competitive disadvantages of underdeveloped and remote regions, inflows of human and financial capital from more affluent areas are especially important in stimulating growth; accidents of history are often crucial in triggering these flows.

Institutional Change in Market-liberal State Capitalism. An Integrative Perspective on the Development of the Private Business Sector in China
This paper shows that a more accurate depiction of the development of China's private sector is gained by considering the complex interaction between bottom-up and top-down processes. First, the paper analyzes the general characteristics of Chinese capitalism to help understand and classify the gradual institutional change in the enterprise sector. Second, it draws on insights from comparative political economy and new approaches in political science to introduce the strategy of "wearing a red hat," an empirical phenomenon that provides a framework for the emergence from the 1980s of China's private sector.

South Africa: Seven Incredible Health Tech Innovations Changing the Way South Africans Live
In the last few years tech companies have jumped on the wearable tech bandwagon with popular gadgets like the Fitbit or Samsung’s Gear Fit. There are also hundreds of fitness apps taking the smartphone world by storm. The importance of health technologies is becoming more prevalent as everyone, from athletes to housewives, have realised the need to track calories and steps using an app or a wristband. Having said that, the technology is still very expensive and has limited access. Nowhere is the need for more efficient, more accessible and generally more powerful tools as great as it is in Africa. In South Africa, for instance, HIV/AIDS prevalence for adults is 17% according to UNICEF. Access to treatment and, possibly more importantly, access to information about these diseases and how to prevent them is incredibly important.
