Rodan, G. (1985) Industrialisation and the Singapore state in the context of the new international division of labour. In: Higgott, R. and Robison, R., (eds.) Southeast Asia: essays in the political economy of structural change. Routledge & Kegan Paul, London; Melbourne, pp. 172-194.

Abstract

A micro-analytic analysis of the merit of export-oriented industrialization (EOI), strategies. Questions their assumptions, and distinguishes EOI from 'free market' strategies. EOI is not dictated by rational or free market considerations but, by the logic of the New International Division of Labour and intrusion of the state into the 'free market'. The Singapore state has provided the economic infrastructure and political control.
