Overview

This is a guide to the experiences of economic reform since the Second World War and of system reform and economic integration across the world in the past decade. The first part of the book examines why only a small number of developing countries have succeeded in their modernization attempts this century. What lessons can be learned from the successes of the East Asian NIEs and failures of other economies to emulate them? The very different experiences of the transition to market economies in the former socialist countries of Eastern Europe and China is the focus of the next section, with comparisons drawn to the Latin American reform experience, especially in Chile. The effects of economic integration schemes are examined in the final section, with case-studies of Tunisia and Morocco's Free Trade Agreements with the EU, and economic integration and the Arab-Israeli peace process.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
One of five volumes documenting the conference. The 12 papers examine economic reform since World War II and system reform and economic integration during the 1990s. Five consider why only a small number of developing countries have modernized, drawing lessons from eastern Asia that can be applied elsewhere. Another five look at the transition of former socialist countries in eastern Europe and China, and compares it with reform in Latin America. The final two analyze economic integration in the context of Tunisia and Morocco's trade agreements with the European Union and the Arab-Israeli peace process. No index.
