Economists and other social scientists, mostly from around the Pacific but also Finland and Germany, speculate on how recent economic and political changes in East Asia might influence the societies there. Among their topics are the rhetoric and reality of regional integration, the converging and diverging aspects of political regionalism, the experience of Finnish software firms in Japan regarding shift from regulatory barriers to business model requirements, the Philippines as a case study of unionism and collective bargaining in Asian economies, and a comparison of child labor in Asia and Europe. The nine essays were revised in light of responses to the papers delivered and the discussions they generated among workshop participants. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
