This book is a collection of 15 exhaustive studies on the recent East Asian financial crisis. This volume attempts to understand the nature and causes of the crisis, examines its impact on the domestic economy and recommends some measures to mitigate the native impact on various sectors in the short run and reduce the vulnerability of the economy to another currency crisis in the long run as well. The lessons learned from this volume can certainly be useful in formulating policies and instituting measures to prevent the occurrence of another currency crisis, reduce its adverse effects should one occur, and better manage risks that may emerge as the country's economy deepens its integration with the rest of the world.
