Why are some Asian countries successful in increasing their GDP, raising their populations’ living standards, protecting the environment and establishing a high-quality democracy? Why are other countries in the same region mired in underdevelopment, with their population suffering from abject poverty, repression and environmental destruction? Is there a recipe for success, or do success and failure stand at the end of individual and highly contingent pathways, representing experiences that cannot be replicated or serve as object lessons for others? This report compares the developmental pathways of eight very different Asian economies by relating their modes of governance to developmental outcomes. The sample consists of longstanding democracies (India, Japan), young democracies (South Korea, Indonesia), one-party autocracies (China, Vietnam), and “electoral autocracies” (Malaysia, Singapore).

Ke-young Chu

Ke-young Chu, who received a PhD in economics from Columbia University (NY, USA) in 1976, has taught development economics, globalization, and Asian economies at Wesleyan University (CT, USA) and at the School of Economics and the Graduate School of Pan-Pacific International Studies, Kyung Hee University (Seoul and Suwon, Korea), after he retired in 2002 from the International Monetary Fund (Washington, DC, USA) as a Deputy Director, Fiscal Affairs Department. He has written on Korean economic development, the role of institutions for development, the implications of societal values for institutions, social protection, and income distribution.

This paper draws on recent studies in social psychology and new institutional economics to explore how societal values may structure the human actions and interactions in a society directly by inducing the societal members to develop certain behavioral patterns and indirectly by shaping their societal rules of the game. To this end, the paper examines how the Asian tendencies of vertically-oriented collectivism and long-term orientations may help them establish their rules of governance different from Western-style rules and how, as Asians pursue sustained development, these tendencies may influence not only their creative efforts aimed at technical and institutional innovations, but also their balancing acts between competition and cooperation, between individual and societal interests, and between short-term and long-term interests.
