The history of East Asian economic growth in the last half of the twentieth . Export discipline is the single most powerful concept behind the East Asian Economic Miracle.

The history of East Asian economic growth in the last half of the twentieth century is a history of academics and the World Bank insisting that their policies couldn’t possibly work, followed by decades and decades of torrid growth. As Joe Studwell points out in How Asia Works, every one of the economic miracles started with land reform - in Korea and Japan, this was part of a series of postwar changes; in China, it happened a little later with the gradual rescission of agricultural collectivization.

A recent book published by Oxfam on Economic Growth with Equity: Lessons from East Asia is a welcome attempt to explore these issues in more depth (Watkins, 1998). It is also important as one of the few recent publications to have incorporated some of the lessons from the 1997 meltdown. Given its origin as part of Oxfam’s insight series to support their advocacy work, what is surprising is the extent of agreement with the World Bank’s position.
