  5. Crisis and Recovery in Malaysia

    Crisis and Recovery in Malaysia

    Prema-chandra Athukorala
    The prime focus of the book is on Malaysia’s radical policy decision to pursue an independent recovery path, cut off from world markets by a system of capital control, as a viable alternative to the conventional market centred approach. The analysis suggests that, against the initial dire predictions of many economists, the capital controls have actually played a crucial supportive role in crisis management. Whether the controls have played a special role in delivering a superior recovery outcome in Malaysia compared to IMF-program countries remains a point of contention. However, there is strong evidence to suggest that this pragmatic policy choice was instrumental in achieving recovery, while minimising potential economic disruption and related social costs.

    Contemporary Minority Migration, Education and Ethnicity in China

    Robyn Iredale, Naren Bilik, Wang Su, Fei Guo, Caroline Hoy
    Rural–urban migration is an important aspect in the development of countries.

The gradual relaxation of these policies has resulted in greater freedom of movement for the population, the effects of which are discussed in this significant volume. Learn More

  10. China in the Global Economy

    China in the Global Economy

    Edited by P. J. Lloyd, Xiao-guang Zhang
    China in the Global Economy focuses on the theme of twin transitions occurring in the Chinese economy: the transition from a centrally planned economic system to a market oriented one, and from an agrarian to a modern industrialised society. China’s exporters face unprecedented competition in the world market and the flow of foreign direct investment has fallen restraining the growth of the domestic economy. These new challenges have fuelled debate on the perspective of the Chinese economy and its role in the global economy. Learn More
