Russell Napier, market historian and author of Anatomy of the Bear (2016), commented on Architect of Prosperity and raised a critical point about the relationship between equality and prosperity:

“Anyone seeking to understand the true nature of inequality must read Neil Monnery’s excellent book. In Hong Kong Sir John Cowperthwaite created a society of great wealth inequality but of great freedom and opportunity. Refugees fled to Hong Kong from the imposed equality of the People’s Republic of China in pursuit of the greater equality of opportunity in the British colony. This book raises fundamental questions about the nature of the equality we seek to pursue.”
