The development achieved by the resource-limited Asian countries in the last thirty years is unprecedented. This work examines what the authors believe to be the key to this growth--human resources. Using the most current methodology and data, the authors address many issues, including demographic foundations for human resource development, the role of women, whether the expansion of the educational system can occur too quickly, and the implications of evolution toward an aging society. The work strives to integrate these themes in a model that attempts a concise explanation of Asia-Pacific success story.
