Lessons of East Asia
Danny M. Leipziger Vinod Thomas
Price: $ 22

Spanish edition ("Experiencia de Asia Oriental").

East Asian policies that fostered economic growth, reduced poverty, and raised living standards are the main theme of this cogent overview. Seven newly industrialized economies (NIEs) are described and compared. They are Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand.

These country studies examine the macroeconomic policies common to NIEs. They review the highly flexible government interventions that succeeded in developing key industries and the more aggressive interventions that led to failure. The role foreign direct investment plays in producing dramatic growth is also discussed.

Also available in English (ISBN 0-8213-2607-4) Stock No. 12607.
