A Perspective from Rural Southeast Asia

(p.151) Chapter 9 Ecology, History, and Development
Can Economic Growth Be Sustained?

Yujiro Hayami

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins by outlining the characteristics of resource endowments, agrarian structures, growth in aggregate agricultural output, and changes in the shares of major export commodities in world markets in Indonesia, the Philippines, and Thailand. This is followed by a review of the process of vent-for-surplus development in Southeast Asia from the late 19th to early 20th century, emphasizing the critical roles of major river deltas in the continental zone of Southeast Asia and tropical rain forests in the insular zone. The chapter concludes with a discussion of how governments forged policy choices in terms of the structure of political economy under unique ecological conditions and historical trajectories.
