Veteran Asia-watcher Callum Henderson - Standard & Poor's senior authority on the Asian currency market and one of the few insiders to counsel caution during the heady boom days - delivers a first-hand examination of the political and economic events that led to Asia's currency crisis. Written with clarity and objectivity, and supported by fact-filled case studies of Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Malaysia, this book goes beyond the hyperbole and the punditry to give investors an in-depth, country-by-country analysis of the crisis, and forecast the economic effects on the region; provide policy-level political analysis on governmental actions and reactions that led to Asia's ongoing currency crisis; and outline specific opportunities resulting from the Asian currency crisis and its consequent economic impact.
