Shortly after the Asian economic crisis began in 1997, a consensus emerged among multilateral agencies, academics, journalists, politicians and various international business
figures as to what it signified: fundamental institutional shortcomings in the region. On this basis, reforms to achieve good governance, transparency, rule of law, civil society and or democracy have been widely recommended. Important differences exist within this consensus, but the common ingredient is a view that sustainable market systems entail universal social and political preconditions. This, it is argued, is what Asian policymakers have to come to terms with.
