Reform and Recovery in East Asia: The Role of the State and Economic Enterprise

Synopsis

The role of the state in East Asian development has always been a controversial topic and the financial crisis in the area has rekindled the debate over the appropriate roles of the state and economic enterprise across the region. With extensive reform programs underway in almost every economy, there is a renewed focus on the role that governments and governance can play both in determining future performance and preventing future catastrophe. The contributors to this volume explore various aspects of the recent experience of East Asian economies and come to some surprising conclusions regarding the importance of market strengthening and government systems in the sustainability of economic recovery.
