9780043020111: Behind the Myth: Business, Money and Power in South East Asia

Twenty years of headlong economic growth made the free marketeering Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) the world's fastest growing region from the 1960s to the 1980s. However, the overthrow of President Ferdinand Marcos in the Philippines, combined with new market restrictions, caused an economic decline and emphasized the direct links between politics, economics and business practice in all of the countries of South East Asia. This book provides an inside account of the boom years and combines stories of some of the world's most extravagant tycoons with facts about the political and economic background of the region. It also aims to provide insights into the reality lying behind business practice in this important market. James Clad is a barrister and journalist who has spent 10 years studying South East Asia, most recently as Bureau Chief of the Far Eastern Economic Review in Manila, Philippines. In October 1985 he was the first foreign journalist prosecuted under Malaysia's Official Secrets Act.
