Asia's next giant : South Korea and late industrialization by Alice H Amsden( Book )

33 editions published between 1989 and 2004 in English and held by 1,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study demonstrates why South Korea has become the most successful in a series of developing countries that have succeeded through borrowing foreign technology rather than by generating new products or processes
Escape from empire : the developing world's journey through heaven and hell by Alice H Amsden( Book )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Escape from Empire, Alice Amsden argues that the more freedom a developing country has to determine its own policies, the faster its economy will grow. America's recent inflexibility - as it has single-mindedly imposed the same rules, laws, and institutions on all developing economies under its influence - has been the backdrop to the rise of two new giants, China and India, who have built economic power in their own way
The Economics of women and work by Alice Hoffenburg Amsden( Book )

The rise of "the rest" : challenges to the west from late-industrializing economies by Alice H Amsden( Book )

31 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and Portuguese and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1965, "the rest" accounted for less than one-twentieth of the world manufacturing output. By 1995, they produced nearly one-fifth of world output. This book explains the economic policies that allowed for this rapid growth "The rest" comprises primarily at China, India, Indonesia, South Korea, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, and Turkey. Amsden shows that their economic growth was driven by industrialization that was fostered by national policies, and it occurred without the countries' possessing proprietary innovations of their own. Rather, the countries relied on a process of pure learning from advanced countries to establish their modern industries. In this transition the countries moved from economies with assets based on primary products to assets based on knowledge." (Pub. Web page)
The market meets its match : restructuring the economies of Eastern Europe by Alice H Amsden( Book )

15 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under free-market shock therapy, the economies of Eastern Europe have plunged into crisis. Shortages may have disappeared, but so have social services, a living wage, and equitable income distribution. Political unrest increases apace as output plummets. Why so much stagnation, inflation, and de-industrialization, and what can be done to turn this risky state of affairs around? This book, the first critique of the free-market economic policies that have jolted Eastern Europe, addresses these questions in penetrating detail. The authors also propose a sensible approach to reform, including a restructuring of the state itself so that it can play a more positive role in this difficult transition

Beyond late development : Taiwan's upgrading policies by Alice H Amsden( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book Alice Amsden and Wan-wen Chu cover new ground by analyzing the phenomenon of high-end catch-up. They study how leading firms from the most advanced latecomer countries like Taiwan have increased their market share in mature high-tech industries and services." "The profits that true innovators in these industries once enjoyed have already declined, but profit rates are still above average. The latecomer firm that succeeds in capturing these rents earns "second mover" advantage. Amsden and Chu examine the successful second movers in electronic and modern services. The critical factors, they show, are the government policies and large-scale firms that drive skills, speed, and scale."--Jacket

The role of elites in economic development( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elites have a disproportionate impact on development outcomes. While a country's endowments constitute the deep determinates of growth, the trajectory they follow is shaped by the actions of elites. But what factors affect whether elites use their influence for individual gain or national welfare? To what extent do they see poverty as a problem? And are their actions today constrained by institutions and norms established in the past? This volume looks at case studies from South Africa to China to seek a better understanding of the dynamics behind how elites decide to engage with economic development. Approaches include economic modelling, social surveys, theoretical analysis, and program evaluation. These different methods explore the relationship between elites and development outcomes from five angles: the participation and reaction of elites to institutional creation and change, how economic changes affect elite formation and circulation, elite perceptions of national welfare, the extent to which state capacity is part of elite self-identity, and how elites interact with non-elites
