  15. Perspectives on Korean Unification and Economic Integration

    Perspectives on Korean Unification and Economic Integration

    Edited by Young Back Choi, Yesook Merrill, Yung Y. Yang, Semoon Chang
    During the last decade of the twentieth century, the Korean peninsula was the stage for non-stop, dramatic political and economic events. This volume brings together an unusually broad range of perspectives on US policy towards North Korea, the North Korean economy, and North–South economic co-operation and unification. The year 2000 opened a new chapter on the Korean peninsula; the North–South summit in June was no doubt a historical milestone that could lead to major changes on the peninsula. But the fundamental issues herein addressed are still relevant and important. No overnight solutions or magic bullets exist. Essential ingredients for North–South economic co-operation, ranging from regional security matters to policy nuts and bolts, remain little changed. Learn More

  16. 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. Until the late 1980s China was one of the few countries that controlled population movement both directly and indirectly through policies of economic and social control. 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

    North Korea in Transition

    Edited by Chang-Ho Yoon, Lawrence J. Lau
    Recent political developments on the Korean peninsula suggest both the possibility and desirability for the neighboring powers to establish a new framework for regional peace. The US and North Korea have managed to reach an agreement to reduce mutually hostile threats on a reciprocal basis, and to normalize diplomatic relations by removing economic sanctions. They have thus created conditions potentially favorable for the expansion of trade and the inflow of economic assistance and foreign direct investment to North Korea Learn More
