Business, Finance, and Government in East Asia explores the dynamics of East Asia’s economic growth (and crises) over the last fifty years. We will examine Japan’s post-war development strategy, the Asian tiger economies, and China’s dramatic rise. Centered on case studies of major corporations, this course examines the interplay between politics and economics in East Asia, and considers the following questions: How have businesses navigated East Asia’s complex market environment? In what ways can the state foster economic development? How has the financial system been organized to facilitate investment? What are the long-term prospects for growth in the region?
