Michael Harris Bond

Social psychologist Michael Harris Bond, originally Canadian but working from Hong Kong, met Geert in the early eighties. He was doing research on values in Asia. Together they put up a study that uncovered a new, fifth dimension of culture. It was first called Confucian dynamism, later Long-term Orientation. 

Long-term Orientation is dealt with in all subsequent work by Geert Hofstede.
