Synopsis :

MTRC and KCRC moved millions of passengers daily and generated millions of profits. Both government-owned corporations were commercially and financially successful, but not without public controversies as Hong Kong went through drastic socio-political changes in the last three decades. Upon a possible MTRC-KCRC merger, this book offers the first comprehensive analysis of the past achievements, dilemmas, politics and public policy of the Hong Kong railways.

Note de l'éditeur: "Dr. Rikkie Yeung has tackled an important problem of modern public policy: how to ensure good performance and accountability for public institutions when democratic mechanisms are either ineffective or non-existent. She has done so in a skilful and insightful way - by comparing two organisations that have done the same task (provide transportation services) in the same political environment (Hong Kong since 1970). The results of her comparison of the Mass Transit Railway Corporation and the Kowloon Canton Railway apply well beyond the immediate subject. Moving Millions is certainly about how the MTRC did a better job than the KCRC and why, but it also concerns effective governance in technocratic societies. It is well worth reading." - Richard C. Bush, Senior Fellow, Director, Center for Northeast Asian Policy Studies, The Brookings Institution

"Dr. Rikkie Yeung's pioneer volume not only provides an excellent comparative analysis of Hong Kong's two railway corporations up to their 'merger' in 2007, but also examines critical issues of railway governance and politics. Moving Millions goes beyond transport planning and infrastructure. It entails balancing complex public, corporate, and passenger interests. This book draws some timely lessons from the past as the merger company charts its new course." - Professor Anthony B. L. Cheung, President, The Hong Kong Institute of Education; Member, Hong Kong SAR Executive Council

"Providing mobility to millions is a matter of political choice. This is a clearly told story of missteps and missed opportunities in the slow expansion of rail in Hong Kong, when it could have been much faster." - Christine Loh, CEO, Civic Exchange
