Summary
Asia's miraculous recovery from the 1997 crisis ushered in unexpected transformations to its economies and financial sectors. The reasons many Asian countries are growing above 6%, with double-digit growth for a year or two in-between, are investigated by this extensive research collection. The Handbooks of Asian Finance analyze the forces behind these growth rates. Insights into banking, fund performance, and the effects of trading technologies for practitioners to tax evasion, market manipulation, and corporate governance issues are all here, presented by expert scholars. Offering broader and deeper coverage than other handbooks, the Handbooks of Asian Finance explain what is going on in Asia today: Key Features:
  • Present the only micro- and market-related analysis of pan-Asian finance available today
  • Investigate the innovations in technology that have ushered in faster capital flow and larger trading volumes
  • Explore the implications implicit in the expansion of sovereign funds and the growth of the hedge fund and real estate fund management industries
