The overseas Chinese entrepreneurs are stars, but not well-known ones. Across generations of immigrants, they have produced sparkling economic wonders in many Southeast Asian countries. They control an enormous share of economic assets, which is disproportionate to their numbers, and managed to produce more billionaires per capita than any other ethnic group. Even during the Asian economic crisis, they fared better than many other businesses. Their success and pursuits are usually not well publicized. They prefer to operate in industries without glamor, engaging in businesses that other entrepreneurs avoid. Further they do not usually write their biographies, telling the world about their great achievements.
