economies of Southeast AsiaThe Routledge Handbook of Southeast Asian Economics offers new insights into the rapidly-developing economies of Southeast Asia.
Despite widespread initial deprivation, Southeast Asia has achieved and sustained a remarkable rate of growth, in the course of which tens of millions have successfully escaped severe poverty. Though the economies of the region vary in many dimensions, integration into the wider East Asian network of production and trade is a notable common feature, one that continues a centuries-long history of engagement with global trade. A second striking feature is the pace and extent of transformation in the structure of production and in sources of household income in the region, which has undergone remarkably rapid industrialization and urban growth. However, the search for sustained and sustainable growth through and beyond middle-income continues to confront pressing economic and policy challenges.This Handbook offers a timely and comprehensive overview of Southeast Asian economic development. Organized according to the logic of chronological and thematic unity, it is structured in these sections:
Growth and development over the long term
Food, agriculture and natural resources
Trade, investment and industrialization
Population, labor, and human capital
Poverty and political economy
Twenty-first century challenges
This original Handbook, written by experts in their fields, is unique in the breadth and depth of its coverage. Its forward-looking perspective renders it relevant both now and in the future. This advanced level reference work will be essential reading for students, researchers and scholars of Asian Studies, Economics and Southeast Asian studies.’This book makes a number of important contributions to the literature on economic development in Southeast Asia. The chapters combine rich historical material with rigorous new analytic work to highlight the factors responsible for the region’s rapid transition and economic progress, as well some of the emerging challenges that have contributed to a slowdown in progress in recent years–including rising inequality and new sources of volatility. In this respect, the book raises important questions about the sustainability of growth and economic progress in the future. The book is a must-read for East Asia scholars and policy makers; but it should also be of interest to the broader development community who are keen to understand the solid growth performance of many Southeast Asian countries–despite earlier dismal predictions–and their emerging role in the global economy.’ – Valerie Kozel
