In the aftermath of the Asian financial crisis of 1997, many expected the affected countries to reform and restructure their financial systems and become more market-driven. There was an expectation that Asian economies would retrench state influence in the market and converge onto a liberal market model. This book investigates the evolution of the financial systems of Korea, Malaysia, and Thailand since 1997. Pierpaolo Perna is impressed by the book’s ability to draw a parallel between the East Asian experience and the financial crisis still affecting a large segment of the Western world today.
