There's more to success than just taking the muzzle off the free market,
This review is from: Looking at the Sun: The Rise of the New East Asian Economic and Political System (Paperback)
I was surprised there were only 4 reviews for this book, so here is another . . . Fallows addresses the myth that nations develop successfully by letting free markets run unchecked. He explains how several Asian nations successfully used government direction and oversight to point their economies in the direction they wanted to go. This book is also worthwhile for the coverage of Friedrich List, an influential (really) German economist who argued that governments should spend big.
