      There has been no single magic formula for the success of the East Asian transition economies (Cambodia, China, Lao People"s Democratic Republic, and Vietnam), whose performance in export and income growth has been strikingly better than that of transition economies in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. Most of the trade policy problems that remain in these East Asian economies appear to be the problems more of development than of transition.

      SinceChina has accounted for roughly 40 percent of the increase in global demand for oil and 80 percent of the growth in demand for steel. Several of the East Asian transition economies used accession to a regional arrangement as part of their reform strategy. Monetary overhangs are dissipated through inflation, industrial overhang is eroded as plants shut down, and market memory returns through experience. Under that model, closerelationships among business executives, bankers, and governmentofficials strongly influence economic outcomes. Likewise, there was no point in trying to force Japan tolive by those rules, since they were fundamentally inconsistentwith the Japanese system.

      Unless entrepreneurs enjoyed secure property rights and farmers owned their farms the process of Schumpeterian " creative destruction " would limit the reallocation of resources and prevent profitable enterprises from expanding to absorb the workers displaced from the liquidation of non-viable enterprises. The largeU. Vito Tanzi, Director of the IMF's Fiscal Affairs Department, gave definition that the transformation to a market economy is not complete until functioning fiscal institutions and reasonable and affordable expenditure programs, including basic social safety nets for the unemployed, the sick, and the elderly, are in place. The most plausible current version of that story is that Chou was answering a question about the importance of the student riots in Paris. It is true that Japan, like other countries,has its share of overt protectionist barriers; it is also true thatthe Japanese system of political economy is distinctly differentfrom the U. Bogomolov, V.

      At this point, the reader will recall the supposed remark by Chou En-lai that it is too early to assess the importance of the French revolution. It didimpose quantitative restrictions on major Japanese imports—theso-called voluntary restraint agreements on automobiles, steel, andmachine tools. The crisis, says Young, has forced Korea to deal immediately with the serious structural defects of its economy. But when I was studying economics in the s, the debate was between the relatively statist Latin American model and the relatively market-oriented East Asian model. It is piecemeal, partial, incremental, sequential, often experimental, and without large-scale privatization.

As shown in table 1the fast pace of growth in emerging Asia has also supported impressive gains in per capita income within the region. By Trade policy reform in the East Asian transition economies book late s, food supplies and production had become so deficient that government officials were warning that China was about to repeat the " disaster of ", the famines which killed tens of millions during the Great Leap Forward.

Foreign investment helped to greatly increase quality, knowledge and standards, especially in heavy industry. The need for this transition, or rebalancing, is most apparent and also widely acknowledged in China, the current hub of emerging Asia's export-led model.

But that good performance was covering extremely bad problems. However, for oil, the implications of a shift Trade policy reform in the East Asian transition economies book investment-led growth to a consumption-led model are less certain.

Another theory focuses on internal incentives within the Chinese government, in which officials presiding over areas of high economic growth were more likely to be promoted. But the Asian crisis prompted outside investors to take another look at the Korean situation. Growth in the transition economies had been driven by trade integration into the world economy with "impressive" export performance, and by "rapid capital inflows and a credit boom".

These gains had been driven by sustained growth in productivity as obsolete capital stock was scrapped and production shifted to take advantage of the opening-up of foreign trade, price liberalization and foreign direct investment.

To the extent that the expansion of these networks was tied to export-led growth that depended partly on preferential treatment of the export sector, more-balanced growth in these economies may also result in a better allocation of production across countries.

China's performance has been praised for avoiding the major shocks and inflation that plagued the Eastern Bloc. The slowdown hit government revenues and widened fiscal deficits but almost all transition economies had experienced a partial recovery and had maintained low and stable inflation since Also inChina was able to surpass Japan as the largest economy in Asia.
