This thought-provoking book investigates the anatomy and dynamics of debt accumulation in Asia, both before and after the Covid-19 pandemic. Well-renowned contributors provide an in-depth review of the debt accumulated by both public and private sectors and examine how sustainable this is now and will be in the future.

Chapters explore the incentives for debt accumulation of all those involved and the options and instruments that policymakers have to keep debt sustainable. Key factors such as the vulnerability of Asia’s lower income countries, the aging population and other debt generators are also highlighted with the use of regional studies. This book will provide a greater understanding of what makes Asian debt sustainable and offers suggested actions to ensure continued sustainability.

This insightful book will be an invaluable read for researchers, policymakers and non-governmental organisations interested in Asia’s economic issues. Scholars, governmental departments and financial institutions with a general interest in economic issues in Asia will also benefit from the practical case studies.
Critical Acclaim
‘This is an important book for at least three very different reasons. First, it provides an excellent, and very recent, overview of the economic situation of a region of the world whose financial circumstances profoundly impact the rest of the world. Second, even for the non-specialist, it provides a highly understandable analysis of the role of debt as an important element in government finance. Third, it introduces the reader to new and important financial instruments that can benefit a country while benefiting society as well.’
– Allan Rosenbaum, Florida International University, US
