Profit seeking and intergroup conflict in Hong Kong: A case study of the private health care sector

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articlepeer-review

Abstract

Following a court ruling that babies born to mainlanders in Hong Kong are permanent residents, private hospitals cashed in by expanding services and raising fees, leading to an outburst of anti–mainland Chinese sentiment. This study challenges conventional accounts of intergroup conflicts highlighting economic contradictions between in-group and out-group or faulting the state for blaming local problems on the out-group.
