Xu Zhuoyun, a historian at the University of Pittsburgh in the United States and a Wuxi native, discussed Jiangnan culture from many perspectives.

He believes that culture can not be separated from the economy, politics, geography, or human society, and that the reason Jiangnan has been so prosperous is not only because of its favorable geographical conditions, but also its residents.

Xu mentioned that Jiangnan residents value family traditions and education.
