Abstract: In this paper, we analyse the basic driving forces responsible for moulding the Chinese collective values. Globalisation results in substantial changes in some driving forces, which cause the corresponding changes in collective values and institutions. In general, the globalising forces push the Chinese to adopt a competitive capitalist system along with its associated collective values. However, the values that evolved under the unique historical experiences and writing system distinguish the Chinese collective values from the rest of the world.
