"Henry Wan is one of the very few economists who masters both growth theory and development economics. In addition, his thorough and intimate knowledge of East Asia has allowed him to identify and describe accurately the stylized facts and initial conditions prevailing in different countries and time periods. This unusual combination of skills has given rise to a series of revealing essays capturing the impact of globalization on the development process and the resulting policy implications within a variety of East Asian settings." -- Erik Thorbecke
