9781846682438: How Asia Works: Success and Failure in the World's Most Dynamic Region

In the 1980s and 1990s many in the West came to believe in the myth of an East-Asian economic miracle, with countries seen as not just development prodigies but as a unified bloc, culturally and economically similar, and inexorably on the rise. In How Asia Works, Joe Studwell distills extensive research into the economics of nine countries-Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Vietnam, and China-into an accessible narrative that debunks Western misconceptions, shows what really happened in Asia and why, and for once makes clear why some countries have boomed while others have languished. Impressive in scope, How Asia Works is essential listening for anyone interested in a region that will shape the future of the world.

About the Author :

Joe Studwell is the founding editor of the China Economic Quarterly. A freelance journalist in Asia for over twenty years, he has also written for the Economist Intelligence Unit, the Economist, the Financial Times, the Asian Wall Street Journal, and the Far Eastern Economic Review.

British audiobook narrator and AudioFile Earphones Award winner Nigel Patterson has many credits as a stage, screen, and voice-over actor that influence his powerful characterization across a broad range of genres. A graduate of the University of Oxford, he is fluent in French and Spanish.

Review :

Praise for How Asia Works:

I found the book to be quite compelling. . . . Studwell’s book does a better job than anything else I’ve read of articulating the key role of agriculture in development. . . . A good read for anyone who wants to understand what actually determines whether a developing economy will succeed.” Bill Gates, Top 5 Books of the Year”

Pithy, well-written and intellectually vigorous . . . Studwell’s thesis is bold, his arguments persuasive, and his style pugnacious. It adds up to a highly readable and important book.” Financial Times

Provocative. How Asia Works is a striking and enlightening book A lively mix of scholarship, reporting and polemic.” The Economist

"Very readable.... A fascinating and thoroughly deep account." Bloomberg Radio

Gripping Readers will find Studwell’s informative and balanced report eye-opening.” Publishers Weekly

Consistently engaging.” Booklist

Studwell paints a vivid picture of business life in the region. If a copy of the Korean edition finds its way across the demilitarized zone to Pyongyang we may find we have yet another Asian Tiger in our midst.” Management Today

A solid blend of the descriptive and the prescriptive, with plenty of lessons that will be of interest to Asia hands, investors and policymakers.” Kirkus Reviews

Perhaps my favorite economics book of the year. Quite simply, it is the best single treatment on what in Asian industrial policy worked or did not work, full of both analysis and specific detail, and covering southeast Asia in addition to the Asian tiger winners.’ Definitely recommended, you will learn lots from it, and it will upset people of virtually all ideologies.” Tyler Cowen, Marginal Revolution

Illuminating” Independent (UK)

An interesting analysis of policy decisions that have and haven’t worked . . . a handy guide for anyone interested in one of the world’s fastest developing regions.” The Economic Times (India)

Studwell’s latest book, How Asia Works, is also his most ambitions. . . . Declining to make broad pronouncements or dovetail with doctrine, Studwell demonstrates that the way Asia works isn’t quite as simple as we ever imagined.” Smart Planet

"A landmark work." Asia Times (Bangkok)

Bold and insightful. . . . Essential reading for anyone interested in understanding the ingredients for economic success.” The News International (Pakistan)

Description du livre Profile Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. État : New. Main. Language: English . Brand New Book. Until the catastrophic economic crisis of the late 1990s, East Asia was perceived as a monolithic success story. But heady economic growth rates masked the most divided continent in the world - one half the most extraordinary developmental success story ever seen, the other half a paper tiger. Joe Studwell explores how policies ridiculed by economists created titans in Japan, Korea and Taiwan, and are now behind the rise of China, while the best advice the West could offer sold its allies in South-East Asia down the economic river. The first book to offer an Asia-wide deconstruction of success and failure in economic development, Studwell s latest work is provocative and iconoclastic - and sobering reading for most of the world s developing countries. How Asia Works is a must-read book that packs powerful insights about the world s most misunderstood continent. N° de réf. du libraire AA99781846682438
