(p.51) Chapter 3 The Economy and the State
Miracle to Meltdown in Asia

Norman Flynn

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the role of civil servants and the state's role in economic development. It distinguishes between the developmental state and the good governance approaches. The developmental state argument is that the connection between the state and business is not simply one of ‘interference’ in or ‘direction’ of the market by the state. The good governance approach takes a normative view of the relationships, arguing for more clarity in the distinctions between institutions. The difference between the two is that the developmental state argument is essentially about the interconnectedness of the government and business spheres. The good governance approach is about creating institutional arrangements that break down the interconnectedness and establish more instrumental relationships between the two. This chapter also shows that there are different sorts of expressive connections in the different countries of the region and a different balance between rule by market and rule by connections.

Keywords:   civil servants, developmental state, good governance, connections, rule by market, rule by connections
