This study examines the influence of economic and political factors that contribute to the convergence and/or divergence in value priorities of five East Asian societies-China, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan. We find that political and social-economic factors influence the values orientations of managers within this region. However, economic development level is an insufficient explanation for values convergence without consideration of the societal context and cultural traditions in which that development occurred.
