From the cover: “Why have not just Japan, but also Taiwan and South Korea, been so successful in economic development? This book rejects the claims both of those who see the East Asian story as a vindication of free market principles, and of those who say it all resulted from government intervention. What needs attention, the author argues, is the way allocation decisions were divided between markets and public administration — and the synergy between them. The book focuses on Taiwan, with comparisons to Korea, Japan, and Hong Kong.”
