Summary "The book focuses on the forces underlying long-lasting growth in East Asia's newly industrialized countries (NICs). Drawing from the experiences of Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore and Taiwan, it questions whether public policy can contribute to removing barriers towards accumulation of wealth and if so, what development policy should be put in place to remedy the existing distortions or market failure problems."--BOOK JACKET
