|Abstract:||The commodification of higher education has been led by business schools in Australia, and they have been accused of teaching merely technique and preaching greed in their manifesto of career and revenue generation. The study of history has been a casualty in this push for the techniques rather than the substance of business. This paper argues that even historical research into a subject as arcane as the traditional Chinese art/science of fengshui can lead to a greater understanding of the context of business in China and therefore of Chinese business practice itself.|
