Why have Taiwan and the Philippines evolved so differently in industrial growth? After careful examination, Cheng-Tian Kuo concludes that corporatist links between industry and government are key factors explaining rapid economic progress in East Asia.
The impact of business associations on industrial growth has long deserved closer analysis. Using important new research data - business association proceedings, newly published government documents, and newspaper reports - Kuo presents a refreshing reassessment of the role of private-sector alliances on state policy and national economic vitality in the Far East.

About the Author:

Cheng-Tian Kuo is Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.

Review:

“Kuo's work is a model of conceptual clarity: he considers three types of economic regimes: laissez-faire, clientelism, and corporatism as applied to the two countries in question. . . . The detailed individual chapters on the textile industry, the electronics industry, and the plywood industry in both countries contain much valuable information.”
—Studies in Comparative International Development



“One of the many strengths of Kuo's book is the fascinating historical detail he provides on three industries: textiles and apparel, plywood and electronics; these are among the best sectoral case studies we have of the NICs.”
—Pacific Affairs
