  • What Caused 1997 Asia's Financial Crisis?

    Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is “Asian Crisis” During 1997-98, many of the East Asian tiger economies suffered a severe financial and economic crisis. This had big consequences for the global financial markets, which had become increasingly exposed to the promise that Asia had seemed to offer. The crisis destroyed wealth on a massive scale and sent absolute poverty shooting up. In the banking system alone, corporate loans equivalent to around half of one year's GDP went bad - a destruction of savings on a scale more usually associated with a full-scale war. The precise cause of the crisis remains a matter of debate. Fingers have been pointed at the currency peg adopted by some countries, and a reduction of c...

  • World Bank - East Asia and Pacific Update

    Growth in developing East Asia will decline by around one to two percentage points to around 8.5% in 2008 as a result of the unfolding financial turmoil in the US and the resulting global slowdown, says the World Bank's latest six-monthly review of the East Asia and Pacific region's economies. But despite the likely drop from recent double-digit levels, overall growth remains healthy across the region and most countries are well positioned to navigate the global slowdown because of the investments they've made in the last 10 years in structural reforms and putting sound macroeconomic policies in place, the report says. In fact, according to the latest East Asia & Pacific Update, East Asia and especially China have increasingly become a "growth pole" in the world economy -- acting as a ...

But he did admit the organisation had made mistakes. Summers, who has just returned from a tour of the region also says he's optimistic about south east Asia's economic prospects. It's a debate that still continues, did the international community make the right choices in responding to the Asian financial crisis? The International Monetary Fund (I-M-F) has acknowledged that it made some mistakes in its rescues of Thailand, South Korea and Indonesia in 1997 and 1998, most notably in underestimating the severity of those countries' recessions.

Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is “Asian Crisis” During 1997-98, many of the East Asian tiger economies suffered a severe financial and economic crisis. This had big consequences for the global financial markets, which had become increasingly exposed to the promise that Asia had seemed to offer. The crisis destroyed wealth on a massive scale and sent absolute poverty shooting up.

The precise cause of the crisis remains a matter of debate. Fingers have been pointed at the currency peg adopted by some countries, and a reduction of capital controls in the years before the crisis. Some blamed economic contagion. The crisis brought an end to a then widespread belief that there was a distinct "Asian way" of capitalism that might prove just as successful as capitalism in America or Europe. Instead, critics turned their fire on Asian cronyism, ill-disciplined banking and lack of transparency. In the years following the crisis, most of the countries involved have introduced reforms designed to increase transparency and improve the health of the banking system, although some such as South Korea went much further than others like Indonesia.

From the skyscrapers of Hong Kong to the ransacked streets of Jakarta, the Asian Renaissance is over. Construction has stopped, unemployment has risen, food prices and inflation have soared. Throughout the 90's the whole region pursued unchecked economic growth and first world status. But Asia's economic miracle was built on a shaky foundation. Behind the massive expansion lurked political values from the Middle Ages. The World Bank President sums the boom up: 'it had over-lending, corruption, cronyism, banks lending to its shareholders. Now, there's a comeuppance.' Indonesia's financial ruin was the catalyst for its social collapse. Suharto stands accused of plundering the nation's wealth, crushing those who protested. He ignored the extent of his country's economic crisis, and continued to reward his children and swarms of sycophants with unjust riches. But recent weeks saw Indonesians send their ruler a powerful message: the old values don't count. Almost like lightening, the world's second longest dictator stood down. Is Prime Minister Mahatir of neighbouring Malaysia making the same mistakes as Suharto? The economic crisis has ruffled Mahatir's feathers too. In power for 16 years, he is also known for corruption, cronyism and nepotism. Before the crash Suharto's family wealth was put at US$6 billion. Mahatir's three sons are directors of at least 200 companies. Both leaders made no secret of their 'crony capitalism': the best deals went to the government's best friends. Mahatir calls that 'the duty of government'. Both countries have put development above all other concerns. Indonesia's frenetic logging of the Borneo rainforest caused the terrible forest fires that raged there. Mahatir was furious when forced to abandon his scheme to flood ancient Sarawak rainforest by building the Bakun damn. The crisis in Indonesia made ethnic Chinese the target of resentful attacks. In Malaysia, the nervous Chinese have been scapegoats before. Malaysia's Deputy Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim is tipped for the top. In the spirit of the changing Asian values he concedes 'We've got to be more democratic. The younger generation would like to see greater transparency, and tolerance'. Indonesia's new President Habibie is now releasing political prisoners and promising an end to corruption. But as a child of the old system, it remains to be seen whether he is really the right man for the job. The excesses of the ruling Indonesian elite devalued as fast as the rupiah. Other countries in the region are still suffering the same economic turmoil, but have not yet seen such momentous political change. 'My pay's been cut, my tears now fill my car... I took years to buy it and it's being repossessed!' croons a Thai pop-star. Across the region the poor are getting poorer. The Tiger economies were forged with the sweat of cheap labour. As work dries up and food runs out, will the people's anger erupt elsewhere? In these most turbulent times, we ask whether Indonesia's powerful winds of change are set to blow across the whole of Asia.

HDB embarked on a massive programme to house the many people living in squatter settlements. Now, more than 80 per cent of Singapore’s population live in HDB flats. Singapore's first estate, Queenstown, was initiated by SIT in the 1950s but was fully developed by HDB. The second town, Toa Payoh, was the first to be planned and designed by HDB. There are now 23 towns across Singapore. David Marshall, leader of the Labour Front, became the first Chief Minister of Singapore. He presided over a shaky government, receiving little cooperation from either the colonial government or the other local parties. Social unrest was on the rise, and in May 1955, the Hock Lee bus riots broke out, killing four people and seriously discrediting Marshall's government. In 1956, the Chinese middle school riots broke out among students in The Chinese High School and other schools, further increasing the tension between the local government and the Chinese students and unionists who were regarded of having communist sympathies. In April 1956, Marshall led a delegation to London to negotiate for complete self-rule in the Merdeka Talks, but the talks failed when the British were reluctant to give up control over Singapore's internal security. The British were concerned about communist influence and labour strikes which were undermining Singapore's economic stability, and felt that the local government was ineffective in handling earlier riots. Marshall resigned following the failure of the talk. The new Chief MinisterLim Yew Hock, launched a crackdown on communist and leftist groups, imprisoning many trade union leaders and several pro-communist members of the PAP under the Internal Security Act. The British government approved of Lim's tough stance against communist agitators, and when a new round of talks was held beginning in March 1957, they agreed to grant complete internal self-government. A State of Singapore would be created, with its own citizenship. The Legislative Assembly would be expanded to fifty-one members, entirely chosen by popular election, and the Prime Minister and cabinet would control all aspects of government except defense and foreign affairs. The governorship was replaced by a Yang di-Pertuan Negara or head of state. In August 1958, the State of Singapore Act was passed in the United Kingdom Parliament providing for the establishment of the State of Singapore. This material been used for Educational purpose only.

Mr. Park presented a research that confirms that financial development does boost economic growth. In the second part of the presentation, Ms. Kathie Julian, ADB country director in Georgia, provided some information about the mission and project of ADB in Georgia. Ms. Julian mentioned issuance of Lari denominated bond, issued by ADB this February to provide long-term capital to the economy and support improvement of domestic bond market. The presentation was followed by a Q&A session. ISET would like to thank Mr. Park for giving a very informative and interesting presentation to the ISET community.

Growth in developing East Asia will decline by around one to two percentage points to around 8.5% in 2008 as a result of the unfolding financial turmoil in the US and the resulting global slowdown, says the World Bank's latest six-monthly review of the East Asia and Pacific region's economies. But despite the likely drop from recent double-digit levels, overall growth remains healthy across the region and most countries are well positioned to navigate the global slowdown because of the investments they've made in the last 10 years in structural reforms and putting sound macroeconomic policies in place, the report says. In fact, according to the latest East Asia & Pacific Update, East Asia and especially China have increasingly become a "growth pole" in the world economy -- acting as a counterweight to the slowing industrial economies.

English/Nat U-S Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers says he doesn't hold the I-M-F responsible for the financial crisis which swept south east Asia two years ago worse. But he did admit the organisation had made mistakes. Summers, who has just returned from a tour of the region also says he's optimistic about south east Asia's economic prospects. It's a debate that still continues, did the international community make the right choices in responding to the Asian financial crisis? The International Monetary Fund (I-M-F) has acknowledged that it made some mistakes in its rescues of Thailand, South Korea and Indonesia in 1997 and 1998, most notably in underestimating the severity of those countries' recessions. But the I-M-F has largely dismissed criticism that it made the crisis worse by insisting the countries' governments adopt painful economic policies such as high interest rates. That criticism was aired again today at a hearing on the lessons learned when the international community jumped in to rescue Asian economies. The U-S Treasury Secretary, who has just returned from the region, says the I-M-F did need to improve its performance. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We have made progress in the effort to develop a 21st century IMF. But we have no doubt that further change is needed. We said many times last year that a well-funded IMF was indispensable to a stable global financial system. But as we also said at that time - that does not mean we can be satisfied with the IMF as it is." SUPER CAPTION: Lawrence Summers, U.S. Treasury Secretary But Summers said he did not believe the I-M-F had made the problems of the Asian economies worse. SOUNDBITE: (English) "By far the greatest responsibility for causing, and responding effectively, to crises lies with countries themselves. The fact that most countries with IMF programmes in place have severe economic problems does not imply that the IMF is responsible for those problems - any more than the fact that most people in a hospital are severely ill would be evidence of medical malpractice." SUPER CAPTION: Lawrence Summers, U.S. Treasury Secretary And he was optimistic about economic trends in the region. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I think it would be fair to say if you look at Asian economies as a group, their situation today is substantially better than the vast majority of observers expected a year ago." SUPER CAPTION: Lawrence Summers, U.S. Treasury Secretary In the past, Summers' predecessor, Robert Rubin has said the Asian crisis illustrated the risks and opportunities of a global economy. It seems Summers agrees.
