Description

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.

The best economic development book I’ve ever seen

This book gives the essential blueprint for how developing countries succeed in the postwar era. He tells you why countries like Japan, Taiwan,Korea succeeded and others like the Philippines Indonesia Malaysia did not. If you want to understand Asian economics you must listen to this book.

a good book, that explains Asian economies well

This book explains the economic history, of Asia quite well. Along the way you learn how countries influenced each other. How the Germans influenced the Japanese, in turn they influenced the Koreans, and so on. Also the other important takeaway, is that you learn about Friedrich List

Boring.

Maybe it was over my head but it could have used some analogies and comparisons to make it more interesting.

Excellent Book - Huge Topic

Narrator is top quality

The content is well presented and defended. The story is excellent and detailed. It would have been easy to make this a boring book. But it is not boring.

People should read this to understand the China-side on Trade.

Redistribution, exports, banking

I learned so much from this book and can honestly say I am rethinking some ideas/beliefs I previously had. learning about successful economies in Asia that succeed because of government regulation was surprising while others failed in part because entrepreneurs were allowed to willie nillie around focusing on short term profits rather than long term gains for the country. Very well explained, educational and challenged some of my beliefs which I always love!

A roadmap for economic development

Excellent book. Well written and well narrated. My only complaint is that the volume is inconsistent. It can dip and rise without warning, and is often too quiet.

Great insight of the Asian economy and development

Being an Asian myself it is great to know how neighbouring nations succeed while others don't.
