This short book provides an excellent analysis of the Asian financial crisis. It begins with a judicious evaluation of the causes of the crisis, both internal and external. It then presents simulation results based on a computer model which show the impact of the crisis both by industrial sector and by country. A special epilogue to the revised edition presents results which analyze the impact of Japan's lingering problems on the region. The technical material is consigned to appendices so that the general reader is not distracted by it, but these annexes may be of interest to more technically-oriented analysts.
