Constructing rules and regulations to constrain the predatory actions of ‘rent-seeking’ officials and business interests (World Bank 1983; North 1994). Despite the elegant and frictionless process of change assumed above, neo-liberals have had to recognise the politically contested nature of economic transition. These contests are seen as resistance by rent-seekers, who prosper from government intervention in the operation of markets, and who capture both rents and the very institutions intended to regulate economic life (Krueger 1974; Olson 1982).

Most condemned rent seeking in the region as the ready-made explanation for the crises, usually ignoring all the subtlety and nuance of extant analyses. One commentator, for example, has claimed that things suddenly went awry from 1996, implying that all was well before that, and, presumably, that crony capitalism and rent seeking were not a problem then. Business organisations, relations, practices and norms that had previously been credited with the East Asian miracle were now condemned as the sources of the debacle.

These are critical questions, for if global financial markets in particular and the reconfigured international system in general are responsible for a crisis that shows every sign of affecting non-Asian economies, then dismantling ‘crony capitalism’ or discouraging dirigiste regimes may do little to address the underlying structural problems of capitalism per se.

This section, therefore, sketches the most important structural developments in the interconnected, international economic and political system, changes which are routinely subsumed under the rubric of ‘globalisation’.
