Global Financial Crisis in the Asian Context: Repercussions and Responses

This volume focuses on the Asian financial crisis of the late 1990s and the 2008 financial crisis that originated in the United States. How have these crises affected Asia? How has the Asia coped? What has been the impact of the crises on ordinary people? Between the covers of this book are theoretical perspectives on financial crises, followed by specific studies on the crises’ impact on Filipino overseas workers and the response of families with overseas workers in Paete, Laguna; the effects of the crises on the Indonesian pirates; the connection of an economic framework between Taiwan and China to the financial crisis; and the impact and response of business firms in selected countries in ASEAN + 3.
