September 24, 2018: University of Toronto to host talk on economic development in East Asia
The Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy at the University of Toronto will be hosting Dr. Henry Wai-chung Yeung as he discusses the linkage between state-firm relations and economic development in East Asia. In his most recent work, Yeung has challenged the idea of the “developmental state” and how the choosing of national champions led to economic growth. Rather, he posits that in South Korea, Taiwan, and Singapore, production network-level dynamics and firm-specific initiatives were more critical as these countries transitioned from developing to developed nations.
