Example text

In order to overcome the country’s status as a raw-material producer, some British kings—notably Edward III and Henry VII—implemented various schemes to promote “import substitution” in woolen manufacturing, establishing the industry as an engine of British export earnings. In 1721, Robert Walpole, the so-called first British prime minister, introduced a trade and industrial policy reform that was intended to expand infant-industry protection to the rest of the economy. The policies thus implemented were reminiscent of what later came to be known as “East Asian–style” industrial policies: protection of infant industries, export subsidies, the lowering of tariffs on industrial inputs, import tariff rebates on inputs used for exporting (a good way of promoting exports), export quality control by the state.

38â•… Sassen Chapter 2 The 2008 World Financial Crisis and the Future of World Development Ha-Joon Chang Over the past three decades, the economic orthodoxy, both in academia and in policymaking circles, has been that free-trade, free-market policies are the best route to economic development. During this period, with the notable exception of China and India, developing countries have come to embrace this orthodoxy, sometimes voluntarily but often under external pressures. They liberalized their trade and foreign investment, privatized their state-owned enterprises (SOEs), strengthened the protection for patents and other intellectual property rights (IPRs), and implemented conservative macroeconomic policies, characterized by high interest rates and balanced budgets.

In the following months, even that proved insufficient, so the IMF started easing the fiscal conditions further. However, the fiscal relief came too little too late. South Korea’s economy contracted by nearly 6 percent in 1998. The IMF conditions imposed on South Korea were actually not as harsh as those it imposed on most other countries. Indonesia, which signed an IMF agreement a little before South Korea did, was forced to raise its interest rate to the usurious level of 80 percent. With requirements of massive budget-deficit reduction, it had to make massive cuts in government spending, especially food subsidies, sparking off popular riots.
