Technology, competitiveness, and the state : Malaysia's industrial technology policies by Jomo K. S( )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 1,673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the beginning of the 1990s, Malaysia's remarkable economic performance has attracted attention around the world and been subject to much study and enthusiastic acclaim. However, in the wake of the late-1990s financial crisis, the debate has centred on whether this impressive growth rate can be sustained. As the economy moves beyond growth based on low labour costs and other factor-endowed advantages, industrial technology development becomes increasingly critical to continued growth. This volume, and its companion, "Industrial Technology Development in Malaysia", examine and evaluate Malaysian industrialization in terms of its experience of and prospects for industrial technology development. The focus is on the role played by state-sponsored innovation in the process economic development and in the context of national development strategies. The work provides an analysis of the technological development of a newly industrializing country and reflects on whether existing development strategies can be maintained in the wake of the financial crises sweeping the East Asian economies

Malaysia@50 : economic development, distribution, disparities by Jomo K. S( )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Malaysia has grown and changed a great deal since it was formed on 16 September 1963. It was then seen as an unlikely nation hastily put together as a federation of British controlled territories in the region. Brunei's refusal to join at the eleventh hour and Singapore's secession before its second birthday only seemed to confirm such doubts. Yet, it has not only survived, but even thrived, often cited as a developing country worthy of emulation. Ruled by the same ruling coalition since the mid-1950s, it has been tempting to emphasize continuities, and there certainly have been many. Looking back at its last half century, this volume first considers changes in development policy in response to national as well as international developments. The remaining three parts consider how public policy has been influenced by and has, in turn, influenced economic distribution, public finance and economic federalism. Besides the familiar focus on ethnic disparities, regional and other distribution issues are considered. The discussion of government taxation as well as spending also focuses on distribution implications. Although constitutionally a federation, Malaysia has been more centralized than most federal states. The way forward requires greater sensitivity to the complex political economy of Malaysia's unlikely, but nonetheless resilient federation and ruling coalition
Reforming the international financial system for development by Jomo K. S( )

18 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 1,107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1944 Bretton Woods conference created new institutions for international economic governance. Though flawed, the system led to, a golden age in postwar reconstruction, sustained economic growth, job creation, and postcolonial development. Yet financial liberalization since the 1970s has involved deregulation and globalization, which have exacerbated instability, rather than sustained growth. In addition, the failure of Bretton Woods to provide a reserve currency enabled the dollar to fill the void, which has contributed to periodic, massive U.S. trade deficits
Is good governance good for development? by Jomo K. S( )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,080 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whilst good governance is a worthy goal by itself, this book argues that it is not a prerequisite for economic growth or development. Challenging the conventional good governance paradigm favoured by the donor community, this book exposes the methodological shortcomings of the commonly-used governance indicators developed within the World Bank. It argues that aggregate good governance indicators are less helpful for identifying governance failure in specific areas needing policy interventions. Bringing together contributions from leading political scientists, political economists and development practitioners, this is the first book that focuses on such good governance issues -- P. 4 of cover
Manufacturing competitiveness in Asia : how internationally competitive national firms and industries developed in East Asia by Jomo K. S( )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 1,016 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poor poverty : the impoverishment of analysis, measurement and policies by Anis Chowdhury( )

Ethnic business : Chinese capitalism in Southeast Asia by Brian C Folk( )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 915 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The role of ethnic Chinese business in Southeast Asia in catalyzing economic development has been hotly debated - and often misunderstood - throughout cycles of boom and bust. This book critically examines some of the key features attributed to Chinese business: business-government relations, the family firm, trust and networks, and supposed 'Asian' values. The in-depth case studies that feature in the book reveal considerable diversity among these firms and the economic and political networks in which they manoeuvre. With contributions from leading scholars and under the impressive editorship of Jomo and Folk, Ethnic Business is a well-written, important contribution to not only students of Asian business and economics, but also professionals with an interest in those areas

Growth divergences : explaining differences in economic performance( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, most developing countries have grown faster than the developed economies. This volume of analytical studies seeks to explain major differences in economic performance in recent decades by considering the dynamics of international economic growth, diverging growth rate, economic structures, and sources of demand, successes and collapses in the developing world, recent episodes of real income stagnation of countries. Several chapters critically review latest misleading claims and the conventional wisdom regarding the relationship of trade liberalization, financial development, development, aid, infrastructure spending, violent conflict, good governance, and industrial policy to economic growth.--Publisher's description
Tigers in trouble : financial governance, liberalisation and crises in East Asia by Jomo K. S( Book )

20 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a cogent critique of the nature of Southeast Asian capitalism. It argues powerfully that the crises are due not to excessive regulation, but to too much financial liberalisation and a consequent undermining of monetary and fiscal governance. While recognising some macroeconomic problems and abuses of state intervention in the region, the book also highlights the nature and implications of IMF and domestic policy responses which exacerbated the crises." "The analysis contained in this book raises profound questions which resonate way beyond the Asian region itself. They relate to the appropriate role of the state, the policies of the IMF and the viability of the deregulated free market capitalist model which these and other Third World countries have been encouraged to pursue."--Jacket
Towards full and decent employment( )

9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the international community has made a commitment to achieving full employment and decent work for all, this goal seems ever more distant in view of recent trends such as the growing unemployment and underemployment, the phenomenon of 'jobless growth', the growing 'casualization' of employment relations, the promotion of labour flexibility at the expense of welfare security, de-industrialization and the continued decline of peasant agriculture
