Review

"The main value of this book, therefore, is not an assessment of Gus Dur or of the economy. Rather, given that it contains papers by so many representatives of Indonesia's economic intellectual elite, it is as a contribution to debate on the immense and intractable problems the country then faced, and a sample of the professional advice that was available, directly or indirectly, to the new president" (Bulletin of Indonesian Economic Studies).

"This is a worthy addition to studies looking at a critical juncture in Indonesian history. It offers some useful insights on a highly tumultuous time, while equipping the reader with an awareness of some of the enduring problems and controversies afflicting the Indonesian economy. A recommended read" (New Zealand International Review).

About the Publication

This volume is a collection of chapters on the Indonesian economy under Abdurrahman Wahid (popularly known as Gus Dur). Contributions come from many leading Indonesian commentators and practitioners of the past and present, and there are also chapters from representatives of international assistance agencies. The authors provide a mid-term assessment of the challenges facing Indonesia's economic development and suggestions for future directions. The themes covered are, inter alia, overall political and macroeconomic stability, bank and corporate restructuring, decentralization, corruption, and socio-economic trends. This book will be of interest to those wishing to assess the varying perspectives held by Indonesian officials and commentators, officials from multilateral agencies, and academics, in a single volume.
