On December 21, 2017, Chen Zhiwu was selected into the "list of 50 Chinese students studying abroad in 2017".
Chen Zhiwu's parents are farmers. His childhood and youth were spent in the fields and mountains of Chaling, Hunan Province. The whole enlightenment stage was during the "Cultural Revolution" period, and did not have a good lesson. "The teachers were all from the village and town, and no one had ever been to university. They could not give enlightening education, but according to the textbooks, they were very boring."
It was not until 1979, when he was admitted to Central South University of mining and Metallurgy (now the predecessor of Central South University), that he left his hometown in Chaling County for the first time and came to Changsha, a big city. There are many students from the city in the class, "only by comparing with them can we know the difference between their living conditions, the influence of their parents' family and themselves."
When he was a graduate student at National Defense University of science and technology, Chen Zhiwu often went to Hunan Provincial Library to borrow books. One of the most impressive books was the very influential series towards the future in the 1980s, as well as a series of translations published by the commercial press to introduce the classic works of western thinkers and political scientists. "Freedman's" free choice "had the greatest impact on me."
At this time, he became acquainted with Cui Zhiyuan, the person who influenced him to embark on the academic road. At that time, Cui Zhiyuan was only a freshman in the Department of mathematics. He had read a lot of books. When he was in high school, he published articles on literature, history and philosophy in university journals and had contacts with people like Li Zehou. Chen Zhiwu's initial interest in social science and philosophy was influenced by Cui Zhiyuan.
In 1986, Chen Zhiwu was retained as a teacher by the University of Defense Science and technology.
In the mid-1980s, the wind of studying abroad also came to this corner. Chen Zhiwu began to apply to some universities in the United States. He wrote to an old professor at Yale University, asking about the possibility of applying for a doctorate. "I didn't take the TOEFL and GRE because at that time, the Chinese students were
It's very tight. It costs 32 dollars to take these exams, and I can't find a dollar. So I wrote to the Yale professor in charge of admissions to explain why. After I explained to them, they promised to exempt me from TOEFL and GRE. "
At Cui Zhiyuan's suggestion, Chen Zhiwu chose finance. "At that time, I didn't even know what the word finance meant. He showed me some books at that time, but I still didn't make it clear. " Four months later, a letter of acceptance from Yale changed his fate. With dozens of dollars, he boarded the plane to the United States.
In 1990, Chen received his doctorate in economics from Yale. He has taught at Wisconsin Madison University and Ohio State University in the United States. He was promoted to associate professor of Finance in 1997 and professor of Finance in 1999, and returned to Yale for tenure.
More and more of his research results have been published in mainstream journals such as American economic review, economic theory and financial economics. In the financial and economic circles of the United States, Europe, Japan and Hong Kong, more and more people know the name of Chen Zhiwu.
In July 2001, on the plane flying from Shanghai to New York, Chen Zhiwu turned to the magazine Caijing of that month. "I read it from beginning to end, and I was very surprised. It's no different from business week in the United States. It doesn't have the kind of ideological official tone that domestic magazines usually have."
Since then, Chen Zhiwu began to focus on China's domestic economic phenomena and problems. 2001 is the turning point of China's A-share market. At that time, Caijing successively exposed a series of insider trading scandals such as Shenzhen shijixinyuan and Yinguangxia.
Thus, the "stock market gambling theory" is thrown out. A few months later, the stock index fell all the way from 2245 to 998, and China's stock market entered a long bear market for more than four years. In the media, the governance of listed companies has become an important topic.
From 2001 to 2002, Chen Zhiwu set up a special column in new fortune to introduce the U.S. Securities Act, regulatory rules, laws, litigation cases and insider trading.
In 2006, the Wall Street telegraph published a list of the top ten Chinese economists. This eye-catching list takes academic influence as the most important evaluation index, followed by economic influence and social influence. Chen Zhiwu was one of them. He has published 24 wealth lessons, the logic of Finance and Chen Zhiwu's talk about China's economy. Among them, "the logic of finance" connects history, social culture and modern finance, and describes the boring and professional financial problems in a popular and interesting way, trying to answer the reasons for the backwardness of modern China from another possibility. In particular, the use of financial analysis of Chinese traditional Confucian ethics has aroused great interest and heated discussion.

Professor Chen's works are often quoted by the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Far East Economic Review, the Boston Globe and Barron's, and also published in many newspapers and magazines in Hong Kong and Mainland China. In addition, he is one of the three partners of zebra capital management, as well as a columnist and academic consultant of new fortune magazine.
