Boom, Bust, and Beyond: The Political Economy of Development in East Asia

Boom, Bust, and Beyond: the Political Economy of Development in East Asia
How have East and Southeast Asia grown so fast? Why have they been subject to such dramatic vicissitudes? How do they fit into regional and international security, trading, and monetary systems? This course will provide a political economy overview, combining historical background; systematic comparisons of liberal, statist, and institutionalist approaches; and political analysis. The main focus is on development, crisis and recovery in Japan and China, but we will also look more briefly at Korea, Taiwan, ASEAN, and Asian regionalism.
