Contents>> Vol. 8, No. 2 Chinese Business in Indonesia and Capital Conversion: Breaking the Chain of Patronage Trissia Wijaya* * Asia Research Center, Murdoch University, 90 South Street, Murdoch, Western Australia 6150, Australia e-mail: trissiawijaya92[at]gmail.com; trissia.wijaya[at]murdoch.edu.au DOI: 10.20495/seas.8.2_295 Taking issues from mainstream research, which has overly coalesced the discussion around patronage-ridden relationships and money politics, this paper argues that democracy has restructured the pattern of state-ethnic Chinese business relationships into a dispersed network, due to the dynamics of capital convertibility within varying scales of power and interests.
