Understanding East Asia's Economic "miracles"

Front Cover
Association for Asian Studies, 2009 - Political Science - 77 pages
There has been no miracle, says Zhu at least in the sense of divine intervention. He attributes the rapid economic growth in East Asia to decades of hard work by people in the region, though admittedly aided somewhat by favorable international and domestic conditions, sound government policies, and a few far-sighted leaders. He begins by profiling countries in the order they emerged into the world spotlight: Japan, South Korea, China and Taiwan. Then he compares their economies, concludes with a comprehensive explanation for the overall phenomenon and its internal variations.
