East Asian development : foundations and strategies by Dwight H Perkins( )

13 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Taking both a historical and a comparative view, Perkins explores the nature of economic growth in East Asia. He focuses on ten sites in East and Southeast Asia that achieved a substantial degree of economic success: China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam. Secondarily, he discusses the failures in growth of other countries in the region, notably the Philippines. He analyzes why several of the economies of East and Southeast Asia have achieved rates of growth seldom witnessed elsewhere in the world (with a few exceptions); why some of the economies in the region have done better than the others; and why the richest economies eventually have all slowed down. He examines income distribution and the places where income inequality resulted. In looking into the sources for the high rate of growth, he analyzes how these economies and societies transformed the living standards of most their citizens"--

From miracle to maturity : the growth of the Korean economy by Barry J Eichengreen( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The economic growth of South Korea has been a remarkable success story. After the Korean War, the country was one of the poorest economies on the planet; by the twenty-first century, it had become a middle-income country, a member of the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (the club of advanced economies), and home to some of the world's leading industrial corporations. And yet, many Koreans are less than satisfied with their country's economic performance, given the continuing financial volatility and sluggish growth since the Korean economic crisis of 1997--1998. From Miracle to Maturity offers a comprehensive qualitative and quantitative analysis of the growth of the Korean economy, starting with the aggregate sources of growth (growth of the labor force, the stock of capital, and productivity) and then delving deeper into the roles played by structural change, exports, foreign investment, and financial development. The authors provide a detailed examination of the question of whether the Korean economy is now underperforming and ask, if so, what can be done to solve the problem." - Publisher's description

The challenges of China's growth by Dwight H Perkins( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"China's economic performance over the past three decades--its rapid growth, economic opening, and strides in poverty alleviation--marks an historic turn that may qualify as one of the great "success stories" of modern economic development. China seems poised for further rapid growth today -- but questions and uncertainties cloud the longer-term horizon. Can China make the institutional changes and policy reforms that will be required to reach significantly higher general levels of productivity and income? Will continuing economic growth unleash unpredictable social or political forces within China? And what will "an economically rising China"--Potentially, a China with the world's largest GDP -- mean for the security of China's neighbors and the international community? Dwight Perkins analyzes these questions and what their resolution will mean for the United States in The Challenges of Chinese Growth, which he delivered as the 2006 Henry Wendt Distinguished Lecture at the American Enterprise Institute."--publisher's website
