Publisher's Summary

Spanning nine countries, filled with heroic tales of bold decisions and self-sacrifice, and probing vast historical undercurrents, "The Miracle" takes readers inside private boardroom meetings, heated business negotiations, factory floors, and presidential cabinet sessions for a behind-the-scenes look at the events that shaped Asia's economic ascent - and will shape the world in the century to come. With this insider's view, Michael Schuman uncovers how outsourcing to Asia began, how Asia's most successful companies became global corporations, and reveals the technological changes and global economic shifts that made Asia's boom possible. Schuman focuses on the compelling human side to this economic story, and readers will meet the political strongmen, the entrepreneurs, and the key policymakers who shared the same dream: to uplift Asia to its proper place of influence in the world and eradicate the poverty around them.

    Story
    "Packed with stories of both bussinesses and gov"

    The book is a fascinating story of Asia development from the 1950s up until the present time. It describes both businesses and governments and then highlights the intricate connections (or power struggles) between them. It is well written and a pleasure to listen to and I learned a great deal. As an entrepreneur myself, I found the book encouraging.

    I read reviews on Amazon before buying this book. Some of them said the author was certainly biased and advocated government intervention over free market. I found no such thing in this book. In fact, the author presented a lot of facts, history and biographies and left it to the reader to judge. If anything, I felt like he was slightly more pro-market in his conclusions, but maybe that's a wrong a impression. The author does a good job of presenting every opinion there was and cites both pro-market and pro-government advocates.
