PRAISE FOR THE GLOBAL ECONOMY IN TURBULENT TIMES
"The depth of analysis and breath of coverage can only come from someone with a sound understanding of the issues involved, and written in a style that is easy to read and can be understood by the non–specialist. Anybody with even the slightest interest in current economic matters and regional financial affairs should own and read this book. You will be richly rewarded. You will not find another book quite like it."
Dr. Nazrin Shah, Sultan of Perak, Malaysia, and Royal Patron, International Islamic Financial Centre
"I wish the leaders of Europe and America as much as the leaders of Malaysia would read what he has to say. I think many of us are in denial, but reading the essays in this book might help us to acknowledge the truth. I read textbooks but I prefer to do my own thinking. This process is helped by reading some of the writings of See–Yan. I would recommend this book be read by people entrusted with guiding and leading their societies and nations."
Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, Prime Minister of Malaysia, 1981 2003
"In all of these essays, seemingly complex economic issues are explained without technical jargon in ways that any educated person can follow even if they have no background in economics. Most economists have trouble being both rigorous and clear, but Dr. Lin is a notable exception. This book can be read from cover to cover, but for many readers it will serve two roles. It is an excellent reference book. It is also a book for use as a very good university course on global economic issues."
Dwight H. Perkins, Harold Hitchings Burbank Professor of Political Economy, Emeritus, Harvard University, and Chairman, International Academic Advisory Council, Jeffrey Cheah Institute on Southeast Asia, Sunway University
"For over fifty years, through his wide global network of high–level policy analysts and his deep immersion in core domestic policy discussions, Prof. Lin has helped to brainstorm and address every major macroeconomic crisis. In each case, he has lent his powerful analytical mind and sense of culture, history, and politics to help shape public policy responses to ameliorate the situation. It is my great pleasure and honor to help disseminate Lin See–Yan′s great wisdom for the wide world."
Jeffrey D. Sachs, Quetelet Professor of Sustainable Development, Professor of Health Policy and Management, and Director, Earth Institute, Columbia University, and Special Adviser to UN Secretary–General Ban Ki–moon
