Economic analysis of Asian economies


Aims of the course

- Analysis of economic growth of Asian economies in the past, evaluation of current situation, and future potential

Course syllabus

The fast rise of East Asia from poverty and underdevelopment is one of the few critical events of the post-war period. Lessons from East Asia have helped us find answers to critical questions like: how third world countries enter the world economy, what opportunities and threats they face in a competitive world economy; what economic policies are most effective in stimulating economic growth; what alternatives exist to the classic (European) transition away from command socialism (Chinese experience); what is the trade-off between equity and growth; what is the role of the markets and institutional framework in the growth process; what is the role of international institutions etc. The purpose of the course is to analyze the development models of these economies and answer the questions above. Also, a deeper understanding of the past experience will enable us to speculate on future development, the risks and opportunities.
