p. 764. Neoliberalism and Asian developmentlocked

  • Manfred B. Steger
  •  and Ravi K. Roy


There has been a remarkable shift towards neoliberalism in Asia in the last two decades. ‘Neoliberalism and Asian Development’ examines how this has been expressed in different ways.

Neoliberal ideas have been adapted to very different political-economic systems as is illustrated with reference to Japan, China, and India. The different forms neoliberalism has taken in Asia shatters the myth that neoliberalism necessarily comes only in an Anglo-American form.
