Example text

The blurred relationship between state and market in South East Asia was revisited in the wake of the Asian financial crises, when it became popular in some quarters to refer to the ‘crony capitalism’ of crisis Studying China in an Era of Globalisation 33 states. This epithet suggests that South East Asian capitalisms were the wrong sort of capitalism – they departed from the norm of proper and right capitalist practices. And to some extent the conception of Asian capitalisms as different – as something that should be considered when we look at Asia rather than in the mainstream of comparative studies of capitalism – is also evident in academic studies.

Wang Hui (2004: 52) argues that in fact most of the criticisms of WTO entry did not in fact critique the organisation nor the basic tenets of neoliberalism, but were instead about how fast to reform and when it would be in China’s best interests to join (and on what terms). However, some key ‘public intellectuals’ did challenge the entire underlying premise. For Han Deqiang (2000) the key is the relationship between domestic politics and the international economic strategy of central elites. Drawing on insights from classic political economy, Han argues that China needs a new political economy that rejects free market liberalism, and follows the strong state model of ‘the national system of political economy’ championed by Friederich List, and followed by industrial planners during German and Japanese industrialisation.

In perhaps the classic interpretation of the evolution of Area Studies in Cold War USA, Bruce Cumings (1997) notes: For a generation after World War II the bipolar conflict between Moscow and Washington and the hegemonic position of the United States in the world economy drew academic boundaries that had the virtue of clarity: ‘area studies’ and ‘international studies’, backed with enormous public and private resources, had clear reference to places or to issues and processes that became important to study.
