About the Book

First published in 1986, this book examines the nature of the Singapore economy and the role of multinationals within it. It describes the growth and development of the economy and its increasingimportance as a key financial, service and industrial centre in the world economy. It loks at the government policies which have attracted multinationals and it assesses why Singapore is so attractive, comparing Singapore to other East Asian economies. It concludes by evaluating Singapore's prospects for continuing as a vast off-shore deregulated money-making machine.
