Review

Howard Dick, Bulletin of Indonesian Economic Studies, Vol 55, No. 2, 2019.

"ANU emeritus Hal Hill and ISEAS fellow Siwage Dharma Negara ... have brought together a new cast of 26 authors, mostly Indonesians, in order to review the nation's economy 20 years and five presidents after the New Order. Resulting from a 2018 ISEAS conference,'The Indonesian Economy under Jokowi: A New Development Model?', this book of 15 chapters raises a broad set of questions about the trajectory of the Indonesian economy, no longer a 'basket case' but a large, middle-income economy of G20 size and status. 

This book and its diverse chapters offer many insights into policy-making under the first Jokowi administration and should be a useful addition to any library on Indonesia."

Iwan Jaya Azis, Asia-Pacific Economic Literature, Vol. 33 Issue 2, 2019. 

"A volume written by an array of different authors, each focusing on different topics, always represents a challenge. Hal Hill and Siwage Negara have taken up that challenge and do a good job in providing introductory and summary background of the various chapters in The Indonesian Economy in Transition: Policy Challenges in the Jokowi's Era and Beyond ....

The Indonesian Economy in Transition is a treat for those interested in Indonesia's recent policy and progress. The selection and coverage of the topics make it particularly useful and, therefore, it is recommended to both academics and policymakers interested in policy trends and transition of the Indonesian economy in the Jokowi era and beyond. 

About the Publication

By any indicator, Indonesia, the fourth most populous nation on earth, is a development success story. Yet 20 years after a deep economic and political crisis, it is still in some respects an economy in transition. The country recovered from the 1997–98 crisis and navigated the path from authoritarian to democratic rule surprisingly quickly and smoothly. It survived the 2008–09 global financial crisis and the end of the China-driven commodity super boom in 2014 with little difficulty. It is now embarking on its fifth round of credible national elections in the democratic era. It is in the process of graduating to the upper middle-income ranks. But, as the 25 contributors to this comprehensive and compelling volume document, Indonesia also faces many daunting challenges — how to achieve faster economic growth along with more attention to environment sustainability, how to achieve more equitable development outcomes, how to develop and nurture stronger institutional foundations, and much else. 

“This is a timely and much-needed book. There are very few recent books on Indonesia with such a comprehensive analysis of not just mainstream economic policies, but also most importantly the key issues of human capital, inequality, social welfare, labour, food security and natural resource management. This book will not only be crucial for policy discourse but for all stakeholders who care about Indonesia making the transition not only to a high-income economy, but an inclusive one.” 
— Mari Pangestu, Faculty of Economics and Business, University of Indonesia 

“The Indonesian Economy in Transition: Policy Challenges in the Jokowi Era and Beyond is one of the most important books that discusses the Indonesian economy post–Asian Financial Crisis. A must-read for anyone who wants to understand contemporary Indonesian economy.” 
— M. Chatib Basri, former Minister of Finance of Indonesia
