The Role of the State in Economic Change

Robert Wade

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the market and economy of Japan, Taiwan, South Korea and Hong-Kong. According to the authors, the reason why the economies of these states are resilient is because the governments of these states actively participate in making policies and controlling the trade and market. These states usually focus their attention on a single industry: most of them converted them into an export-oriented country. The governments of these states also ensure the skills of their manpower. Their governments intervene in a way that does not restrict the free trade within their country or with other foreign countries. They carefully plan the blueprint of their industry. This is where most of the developing countries fail, making restraints in managing their economies.

Keywords:   South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Hong-Kong, East Asia, export-oriented, manpower
