(p.179) 7 Conclusion
Development and Distribution

Andy Sumner

Oxford University Press

In this concluding chapter, we draw together the book’s discussion. This chapter provides a retrospective of the book and the main arguments, and responds to three core questions outlined in the introduction: How deep, and of what nature, was the structural transformation and inclusive growth in Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand? How did Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand deal with the distributional tensions that rapid change often entails? And how did Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand achieve such rapid economic and social transformation in a relatively short space of time? In other words, what does the experience of those countries imply for theories of economic and social transformation?

Keywords:   Inequality, structural change, poverty, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, South East Asia
