The Burma Road to Capitalism : Economic Growth versus Democracy
Mya MaungISBN: 0275962164;
In light of recent debates and studies on what political scientists call "developmental authoritarianism" and what some economists consider the East Asian model of economic growth, this book analyzes and evaluates Burma's economic performance under military management. It considers the relationship between democracy and economic growth, especially the thesis advanced by Asian authoritarian leaders that sociopolitical stability and discipline must be established as a prerequisite to economic development. Based upon empirical and historical facts, the book shows that the present military regime's denial of democracy to the people and its ostentatious economic reforms have not promoted real economic growth and human development in Burma.
