  1. China and the Global Economy

    China and the Global Economy

    Edited by Shahid Yusuf
    China’s global economic footprint is large and growing. In recent years, China has contributed a third or more to the growth of the global economy following its meteoric rise starting in the 1980s and gathering momentum in the 1990s. China has convincingly demonstrated the efficacy of investment and export-led growth as a model of development and has achieved economic stardom using a mix of industrial, trade and exchange rate policies within the framework of a gradually reforming socialist market economy. The chapters in this volume written by prominent China scholars and economists as well as an original introduction by a world-leading expert, explore China’s economy. This collection will be an invaluable resource for China watchers and to researchers, students and policymakers interested in learning from East Asia’s development, understanding how China transformed its economy and wondering as to how China might come to grips with the challenges ahead.

  2. State Capitalism

    State Capitalism

    Edited by Barbara Krug
    This book takes as its starting point the question of whether contemporary state capitalism simply uses different tools than earlier or other variants of capitalism, or whether it is an altogether new kind of economic regime. It brings together key research and commentary which will help to define the concept of contemporary state capitalism as an economic model and present a nuanced view of state capitalism in action. The editor has selected the articles on the basis of their academic merit, but has also included articles representative of the specific academic climate of a certain time such as Marxist-based concepts. Although these may look ‘out-of date’ or have been dismissed as unsatisfactory, they are nevertheless important for an understanding of the development of the debate. A clear original introduction by the editor provides an illuminating guide to this topic and indicates new areas for further study and analysis. Learn More

  3. Trade in Asia

    Trade in Asia

    Edited by Richard Pomfret
    This comprehensive collection brings together contributions that have increased our understanding of trade in Asia. Early debates centered on the advantages and disadvantages of joining the global economy as exporters to the high-income countries, while trade within Asia was of minor importance. Increasingly, however, trade spilled across Asian borders, and as production chains became more complex attention has shifted towards the organization of international trade within Asia and specifically the operation of global or regional value chains. An original Introduction by the editor reviews the wider literature, in which key contributions often appeared in regional publications, working papers or other outlets that may be hard to access.

  9. The Economic Development of Southeast Asia

    The Economic Development of Southeast Asia

    Edited by Hal Hill
    This group of economies is of interest for a number of reasons. Firstly, they feature great diversity – Singapore has one of the highest per capita incomes in the world, while several of the mainland Southeast Asian states are among the poorest. Brunei is a tiny oil sultanate, while Indonesia is the world’s fourth largest nation. In addition, several of these economies have been consistently among the world’s most open, while others are emerging from a long period of international commercial isolation. Thirdly, the group includes one sizeable country, the Philippines, which for reasons still only poorly understood has consistently under-performed compared to its potential. Four of the economies – Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand – grew extremely quickly in the three decades through to the recent Asian economic crisis. Lastly, the Asian economic crisis of 1997–98 particularly affected three of the countries – Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. The factors explaining this sudden, and largely unanticipated, event are still only poorly understood. Learn More
