Formatted abstract
The financial crisis that began in mid-1997 came as complete surprise to the global community. Its magnitude and rapid spread reverberated throughout the world. Still today, no clear agreement exists on what truly caused this economic tragedy. From foreign exchange rate pegging to the US dollar to lack of prudential supervision have been iterated as one the most rationale explanations for the Asian financial crisis. Starting with Thailand and rapidly infecting other nations of the Asia-Pacific rim the crisis strengthen while taking away investor confidence and thus taking potential investments. With the greater global economic integration, the crisis has been worldwide, which has led to a better understanding the drawbacks of globalisation. This thesis seeks to analyse and synthesize the ideas on future prospects for economic growth in the Asia-Pacific region against the backdrop of its historical development and the financial crisis of the mid-1990s.
