This book examines the long run of economic growth in East Asia from 1945 to the present, assessing the various theories put forward to explain the phenomenon, and appraising the various factors which have contributed to economic growth in East Asia. It charts the growth of the various East Asian economies over this period, and separates out the various key factors such as developmental statism, economic nationalism and enterprise systems. It discusses the role of globalisation, the 1997 Asian financial crisis and explores how far a single East Asian growth model can be said to exist.
