 Palmer | U.S. Policy Toward Southeast Asia
State capacity grew in Southeast Asia in the 1990s, but there also were profound institutional weaknesses, especially in banks and other financial institutions that were loosely regulated and vulnerable to short-term inflows of speculative capital.
One of the interesting manifestations of this discontent with U.S. Asian policy was the split in the views of American and Southeast Asian participants in the Asia Foundation study "America's Role in Asia" released last February.
