Summary A survey of the 'miracle economies' of the 1990s, that analyses the role of the relatively small size of the economies in question, and of accidental external circumstances which contributed to favourable developments. This book examines the rise, in the 1990s, of the model status of the smaller economies, and the accounts given for their success.
