The East Asian Development Experience

  • Release Date 01/2006
  • Printed Pages 7

East Asia is among the richest parts of the world. Despite political authoritarianism, human rights violations, corruption, repression of labour unions, gender discrimination and mistreatment of ethnic minorities, the citizens of East Asian economies have experienced improvement in income and general well being. The author analyses the unorthodox methods employed to achieve this spectacular growth even as East Asian countries have rejected the so-called Western ‘best practice’ policies.
