Catch-Up Industrialization: The Trajectory and Prospects of East Asian Economies
- About the Book
“Suehiro’s strength lies in his grasp of capital accumulation, entrepreneurship, and its socioeconomic background, and his ability to place this body of knowledge in the wider international historical perspective.” —Kaoru Sugihara, Center for Southeast Asian Studies, Kyoto University
“Comprehensive, nuanced, well balanced, and dense with ideas and information, an authoritative compilation and distillation of years of research and study, and presented in a translation of the highest quality. It was a privilege to read this book.” —Mark Metzler, University of Texas at Austin
Catch-Up Industrialization offers an innovative examination of the economies of East Asia from the 1960s into the first decade of the twenty-first century. The book examines the way the political ideology of “developmentalism” has driven economic growth, the significance of innovative production and management techniques, the patterns of industrial relations characteristic of late-developing economies, and the way education shapes the workforce.
