About this book

'Professor Krongkaew is one of Thailands best known academic economists, and he has brought together an impressive number of authorities on the modern Thai economy. The resulting book should be of great value to anyone wanting an authoritative and comprehensive overview of recent developments in one of Asias most dynamic economies.' - Anne Booth, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London The book is divided into 4 parts. Part 1 gives an overview of Thai industrialization and the roles of agriculture, manufactured exports, direct foreign investment and tourism as major contributors to recent fast economic growth. Part 2 analyses the impact of industrialization on government finance, monetary policy, urbanisation, and household welfare. Part 3 further investigates impact on political development, social values, the environment, and education, health and science and technology. Part 4 looks at a future role of Thailand as a newly industrialized country in Asia.
