The East-West Pendulum provides a thought-provoking and thoroughly researched analysis of the recent rapid development of capital markets in the Asia-Pacific region. The Hon. Robert Lloyd George looks at the history, culture, and religious beliefs of the people of each country in the area and he explains how they have reacted to contact with the West during the past century. He examines the current economic situation of each country in the Asia-Pacific region and forecasts their growth during the next ten years. The first part of the book gives an overview of Asian economic and political history. This is followed by an analysis of risks and rewards in individual countries. These chapters are succeeded by a discussion of emerging capital markets in Asia. The book ends with a forecast of the economic scenario to the year 2000. The East-West Pendulum provides an invaluable frame of reference for bankers, fund managers, stockbrokers and independent financial advisers as well as historians and students of Asia.
