Abstract

Chris Leggett argues that the very success of industrialization is likely to lead to an improvement in working conditions in South east Asia, although the next generation of industrialising countries - Indonesia, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia - are likely to attract investors attracted by cheap labour. Dickensian conditions can be expected to proliferate.
