Description

There is a feeling that Asia is at a crossroad, and is facing a new crisis. The earlier crisis of 1997/98 showed that effective systems were missing. Afterwards governments, foreign investors and foreign managers initiated more holistic infrastructures, but corruption, poorly connecting systems, and a lack of transparent management have ensured that these are under performing. In this book well-informed authors offer insights on Asia’s political, educational and physical infrastructures, and indicate the routes leading to better integrated futures.
