Summary of this issue

In recent years, the world has become richer than ever before. Poverty has fallen, infant mortality rates have plummeted, life expectancy has risen, and global inequality is on the decline. At the same time, the spread of anti-liberalism, populism, economic nationalism, and authoritarianism around the world has disrupted global coordination on global issues. In this issue, we invite experts on the Asian economy to examine the economic reforms being undertaken by Southeast Asian countries (Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, the Philippines, and Malaysia) in the midst of an increasingly chaotic global environment.
