The central theme in Culture Hacks is that a lack of understanding of how critical cultural differences impact approaches to problem-solving, negotiations, decision making and general worldview exacerbates much of the current tensions with and in East Asia . . . These cultural misconceptions can pose a national security risk. Author Richard Conrad provides a framework for understanding American, China, and Japanese cultures that include distinct forms of thinking (linear - lateral – intuitive), view of time (relative – absolute), and culture characteristics (literal – abstract).
Richard Conrad grew up in Washington, D.C., studied engineering and economics at Vanderbilt University, earned a master's degree in Economics as a local student at Fudan University in Shanghai, China, and later earned an MBA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Richard worked for the last sixteen years for a large U.S. money management firm researching, analyzing, and investing in Chinese and Japanese equities. Richard is fluent in Chinese and Japanese and continues to live in Asia with his family.
