Development Models, Globalization and Economies compares and critiques the different economic models available in today's global market place. The US or Anglo-Saxon model is often portrayed as the best, yet Europe has a well-known Social Model, and Asia has enjoyed success in the past wherein the "Asian economic miracle" was highly vaunted before their crash. But now Asia, especially China, is again on a roll. The book analyses how these models have influenced both regional and global development, and finally engages in discussions upon alternatives and the search for the "grail".
