Overview

Is the East Asian growth record replicable today? This book answers: yes. It places the common East Asian theme in the theoretic context of product cycles, globalization and convergence and the historical perspective of the 'German Miracle' after World War II, also the more recent Irish growth; it identifies the effective policies for sustained, rapid growth by structured comparisons among different economies; it evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of the alternative policy packages of Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore, in the light of such recent events like global trend for liberalization, and the Crises of 1997 and 2001. Economic Development in a Globalized Environment also scrutinizes the major debates in development economics, using documented cases, and analytic reasoning for support. Instead of the simplistic North-vs.-South view, it further explains international technology transfer in a tripartite relationship of the North-North rivalry, the South-South competition and the North-South alliance. Case studies, statistical series and analytical models are deployed to set forth the reasoning.
