Description

"Vito Tanzi's personal account of the breathtaking changes in China in the last two decades is riveting, illuminating, and thought-provoking. It provides a valuable perspective on how to place China's economic progress in a proper historical and global context. It should be required reading for all those interested in understanding contemporary Chinese development."

- Minxin Pei,

Carnegie Endowment for International Peace

Senior Associate and Director of the China Program

In this panoramic account of the Asian economic history and social and cultural scenes in the past 20 years, Vito Tanzi takes the reader on a journey back to his seminars with senior officials in Beijing preparing for China's massive economic and social transformation, the fateful IMF-World Bank annual meetings in Hong Kong in the midst of the gathering storms of the rising Asian financial crisis, and a quiet stroll to small antique shops along winding Insadong alleys in Seoul in the aftermath of the crisis. Rich with anecdotes from Tanzi's extensive trips to Asia as a senior IMF official, the volume brings to life a world in which policy ideas flow freely across political and cultural borders.

"To understand the future of Asia is always useful to study the past. This book gives the reader a very interesting and informative guide to Asian countries including Japan based on his personal experience at the IMF and academic background of public finance. This book explains well how Japanese society, government, and people have changed in the recent 20 years. The book is also a good read. The examples are fascinating and the writing is excellent. "

Professor Toshihiro Ihori,

Professor of Economics

University of Tokyo.

"Vito Tanzi has produced a lovely and insightful book with astute observations on life, society and economy in East Asia. This philosophical and intelligent travel book is a delightful read. You learn a lot with ease, enjoying yourself with Tanzi's wonderful sense of humor."

Anders Åslund

"This book provides a colorful set of observations on cultural, human and economic aspects of several East Asian economies that the author has visited over the years: China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea and Indonesia. Tanzi is a distinguished Italian economist with a long experience as director of the Fiscal Affairs Department of the IMF."

Masahiro Kawai
