What brought about a financial crisis in the "miracle" economies of Asia? What went wrong with financial reform in Asia? What can the developing countries of the world learn from the reform experiences in Asia?

Financial Liberalization and the Economic Crisis in Asia analyses how financial liberalization was undertaken in eight Asian countries and how it might be linked to the subsequent crises. The country studies focus on China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, South Korea and Thailand.


'The book will be of particular interest not only to policy-makers but also to researchers in the history of economic development and those interested in the Asian economies and the aftermath of the Asian financial crisis.' - ASEAN Economic Bulletin
