Hong Kong's property sector saw dramatic increases in prices in the 1990s. Shortly after taking office as the first Chief Executive of Hong Kong after the return of the territory to China, Tung Chee-hwa announced measures designed to cool speculation and increase the supply of housing stock. The case allows for a detailed discussion of the sources of profitability of Hong Kong's property industry and the potential impact of the Chief Executive's pronouncements. It also allows for a discussion of whether standard industry analysis tools developed in the West are equally applicable to industries in the East.
