Expressive Relationships and Networks

Expressive Relationships and Networks

(p.32) Chapter 2 Expressive Relationships and Networks
Miracle to Meltdown in Asia

Norman Flynn

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the relationships between the economy and politics or between the state and business in East and South-east Asia. This chapter gives examples to illustrate ‘cronyism’ or close ties between business and the state through family or party networks. ‘Rule by connections’ in which obligations are defined according to individuals' relationships are seen as an aberration from rule by markets and democracy. This chapter looks at the relationships which actually exist and defines some of the forms of those relationships, such as expressive and instrumental ties between individuals, and at how the links are maintained in practice.

Keywords:   economy, politics, business, cronyism, family, networks, democracy, expressive ties, instrumental ties, relationships
