|aThe advancement of a nation from poverty to prosperity is not a technical process but a great transformation. At the center of this change are two driving forces - emotion, which is referred to aspiration, anxiety, and sense of responsibility; and enlightenment, which is associated with the freedom from dogmatism, open-mindedness, and the hunger for learning. It is these two factors that have determined not only the remarkable success of Asia in economic development but also the uniqueness of its growth model. This book examines the rise of Asia in the past two decades and draw lessons from its growth patterns.
