Publisher's Summary

In the 1980s and 1990s, many in the West came to believe in the myth of an East-Asian economic miracle, with countries seen as not just development prodigies but as a unified bloc, culturally and economically similar, and inexorably on the rise. In How Asia Works, Joe Studwell distills extensive research into the economics of nine countries - Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Vietnam, and China - into an accessible narrative that debunks Western misconceptions, shows what really happened in Asia and why, and for once makes clear why some countries have boomed while others have languished.
Impressive in scope, How Asia Works is essential listening for anyone interested in a region that will shape the future of the world.

a good book, that explains Asian economies well

This book explains the economic history, of Asia quite well. Along the way you learn how countries influenced each other. How the Germans influenced the Japanese, in turn they influenced the Koreans, and so on. Also the other important takeaway, is that you learn about Friedrich List
