AS 192 - Political Economy of Asia

This course is an introduction to the political economy of Asia. Primarily the course will focus on the economies of East and Southeast Asia, and to some extent on India. In the past few decades, the Asian economies have grown at a rapid pace and performed exceedingly well relative to the economies of other developing countries. We will rely on comparative-historical analysis, economic history and analytical tools used by economists and political scientists to examine the reasons behind the explosive growth in Asian economies. In addition, we will also analyze the role of the state in promoting economic growth and accelerating Asia’s global integration.
