About this product
- DescriptionIndonesia is often viewed as a country with substantial natural resources which has achieved solid ecomic growth since the 1960s, but which still faces serious ecomic challenges. In 2010, its per capita GDP was only nineteen per cent of that of the Netherlands, and twenty-two per cent of that of Japan. In recent decades, per capita GDP has fallen behind that of neighbouring countries such as Malaysia and Thailand, and behind China. In this accessible but thorough new study, Anne Booth explains the long-term factors which have influenced Indonesian ecomic performance, taking into account the Dutch colonial legacy and the reaction to it after the transfer of power in 1949. The first part of the book offers a chrological study of ecomic development from the late nineteenth to the early twenty-first century, while the second part explores topics including the persistence of ecomic nationalism and the ongoing tensions between Indonesia's diverse regions.
