Economics at your fingertips  

Asian capitalism and the financial crisis

Ajit Singh

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: Abstract With the economic crisis in East Asia and a continuing boom in the US, American triumphialism is in the air. The latter is perhaps not unexpected and probably does no harm. But what is more questionable is the view held in the highest circles in the US Government and international financial organisations in Washington which causally links the so-called Asian model of capitalism to the economic and financial crisis which is currently engulfing the hitherto highly successful economies of East and South East Asia.
