- Hong Kong Dresses Up
- Program Number
- Series Description
Hosted by Eric Sevareid. ENTERPRISE's pioneering use of the "case study" approach to business documents high level decisions as they are taking place in the executive boardrooms. ENTERPRISE deliberately shows decision making processes as they occur. Business is treated as a human endeavor rather than an economic phenomenon. It goes beyond the statistics and charts to show real people making critical decisions and then bearing the consequences. ENTERPRISE benefits from the expertise of the Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration (as Harvard professors act as advisors to each program.) Ex Prod: Zvi Dor-Ner / Each individual episode has different producer Series release date: 10/1981
- Program Description
Hosted by Eric Sevareid. Hong Kong is one of the few places in the world where someone can have an idea in the morning, be in business by noon, and make a profit by 9pm - all without dealing with the government. EP examines the workings of Hong Kong's "manufacturer's paradise" through S.T. King, one of Hong Kong's leading businessmen. King manufactures many of the jeans and corduroy pants labeled Sergio Valente, Sasson, Dijon and Calvin Klein. King begins his attempt to hurdle both the land-lease threat and new US import quotas. He is getting into high fashion, manufacturing silk shirts, via Shanghai, at considerably low prices.
NOTE: Updated and rebroadcast during the third season as program 318.
