Economic growth in Northeast Asia during the last 50 years has, by any standards, been remarkable. This major four-volume set draws together some of the most influential papers published on the growth and industrial transformation of the economies of Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Volume 1 outlines the factors behind Northeast Asia's development which includes a discussion on the impact of the financial crisis on each of these economies. Volume 2 discusses the macroeconomic settings and policy regimes under which growth has occurred, with a particular focus on monetary policy, fiscal policy and financial sector development. Volume 3 examines the external sector and human capital formation as the key catalysts for Northeast Asia's growth, and includes discussions of labour markets and income distribution. Volume 4 outlines industrial structures and the debate over the role of public policy. This collection should be welcomed by all those with an interest in Asian studies - scholars, students and policymakers alike.
