About the Book

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.

About the Series

Routledge Studies in International Business and the World Economy

As ever-increasing proportion of the world's business takes place across national borders, the need to understand the motive forces behind international business becomes greater. Transnationals are now, in many cases, as important as national governments in shaping trade flows and economic trends. As this series demonstrates, international business is not just the preserve of the largest companies, but impacts on all aspects of business and economic activity. This series is essential reading for policy makers as well as researchers in international business and applied international economics.
