Book Description

In the past, undersupply of public infrastructure was blamed for low productivity growth in the United States in the 1970s, while greater private sector participation was emphasized for infrastructure development in the Asia-Pacific region before the Asian Economic Crisis in the 1990s.

This revealing book looks at the current economic situation and the state of infrastructure on both sides of the Pacific. Including contributions from leading authorities such as Satya Paul, Jim Storey, Tony Makin and Naoyuki Yoshino, this book closely investigates the experiences of Japan, Canada, the US, China, Korea and Australia.
