A national expert on trauma and crisis management who has worked with many soldiers affected by experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan discusses the long-term effects of trauma and recommends strategies for coping with the anger, withdrawal, and anxiety that results from trauma. Original.
After the Storm discusses restructuring and growth strategies adopted in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and South Korea after the currency and financial crisis of 1997-98. These four Asian economies were the most adversely affected despite achieving rapid growth in the 1970s and 1980s, with low inflation and current account surpluses. Although macroeconomic fundamentals in these countries were relatively sound prior to the crisis, early analyses of the crisis dwelled on the failure of corporate governance, currency controls and immature financial institutions and infrastructure in some countries. The book offers fresh insights into the causes of the crisis and postcrisis restructuring, the growth strategies adopted, and domestic initiatives taken by these countries. It also reveals why reforms recommended by the IMF, World Bank and others were met with resistance, thereby contributing to the ongoing discourse on the effects of globalisation.
