About the eBook

'Prof Vu's timely book provides an excellent analytical study of the growth dynamics in Developing Asia, against the backdrop of a secular shift in the centre of gravity of the global economy from the West to the East. Indeed, his careful attention to data issues and efforts to adapt the standard growth accounting methodology to the Asian context sets an important benchmark for studies in this field. The author's enunciation of a 'strategic (growth) policy framework' with its critical elements of enhancing a country's absorptive capacity and incentives for investment efficiency, underscores the policy imperatives facing Developing Asia in the quest for sustainable and inclusive long-term growth. This book will prove an indispensable reference for policymakers.'
- Edward S. Robinson, Monetary Authority of Singapore

The advancement of a nation from poverty to prosperity is not a technical process but a great transformation. At the center of this change are two driving forces - emotion, which is referred to as aspiration, anxiety, and sense of responsibility; and enlightenment, which is associated with the freedom from dogmatism, open-mindedness, and the hunger for learning. It is these two factors that have determined not only the remarkable success of Asia in economic development but also the uniqueness of its growth model. This book examines the rise of Asia in the past two decades and draws lessons from its growth patterns.
