Since the 1970s Japanese investment and presence in South East Asia has been steadily increasing. In Malaysia this presence has been heightened by the Look East' policy adopted in the early eighties. Japan and Malaysian Development critically assesses various dimensions of Japan-Malaysia economic relations. It also discusses the impact and consequences of the controversial Look East' policy. The first half analyses political dimensions of the relationship, trade relations and the different forms of Japanese investment. The second looks at Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir's 'Look East' policy, particularly at labour issues and cultural implications. The volume includes pioneering studies of numerous important issues which have not been examined elsewhere. Japan and Malaysian Development offers a balanced collection of essays examining Japanese involvement in Malaysia

Poor poverty the impoverishment of analysis, measurement and policies by Anis Chowdhury( )
11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book, co-published with the UN's Dept of Economic and Social Affairs, offers a critical appraisal of the conventional measures and analysis of poverty as well as of poverty reduction policies.Despite greater efforts in reducing poverty since the early 1980s, poverty remains stubbornly high in many parts of the world. This collection argues that the mainstream perspectives on poverty and deprivation have contributed to considerable distortion and misunderstanding and that is not unrelated to ineffectual policy perscriptions. In particular it highlights the World Bank's dollar-a-day measure of poverty and exposes the inadequacies of Bretton Woods-inspired poverty reduction programmes."--Publisher's website
Malaysia@50 : economic development, distribution, disparities by Jomo K. S( )
5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 504 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

Reforming the international financial system for development by Jomo K. S( Book )
13 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 418 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( )
9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 344 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
Tigers in trouble : financial governance, liberalisation and crises in East Asia by Kwame Sundaran Jomo( Book )
12 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 342 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

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In recent years, most developing countries have grown faster than the developed economies.

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
