Product Description

Economists from the US, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and a few other countries none Asian assess the causes and consequences of the East Asian crisis of 1997-98, focusing especially on the interplay of economic and political forces. In eight papers and a summary of a roundtable discussion, primarily from a March 1999 conference at Columbia University, they consider such aspects as the anatomy of the emerging market disease, the politics of moral hazard, the US role in the long Asian crisis of 1990-2000, and from higher risk to risk aversion and the danger of protectionism.
