Overview

The majority of these 12 papers were presented at a July 2002 symposium hosted by Singapore's Institute for Policy Studies. Presented by Rajan (economics, U. of Adelaide, Australia), they analyze the macroeconomic concerns and policy options facing Singapore. After an overview of economic globalization issues, papers look at such issues as economic geography, insecurity and social insurance, industrial competitiveness, comparative advantage and the role of services, government-linked companies and outward investments, structural and budgetary policy, entrepreneurship and productivity, and monetary and financial policies. The emphasis is on analysis of issues rather than the specifics of Singapore's economic experience. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
