Abstract

[Extract] Authukorala posits that Malaysia's financial crisis stemmed from its dependence on portfolio investments and a 'considerable build-up of short-term borrowing' (p.3). Interspersed occasionally with political commentary on the crisis period, this book illustrates the successful use of capital controls to tame the recession and turn the economy around.
