"This book is aimed at readers who may have a limited, or indeed no, knowledge of the policy work carried out by Goh Keng Swee on the development of Singapore and the decisive influence his thinking continues to have on contemporary Singapore governance. The book further explores how Goh's developmental thinking and practices may be utilised by policy-makers in developing economies within the Southeast Asian region and further abroad. Goh's work in fact makes clear that developmental success is transferable between nations given the presence of pragmatic policy-makers. Ultimately, the central aim of this book is to encourage further study and consideration of the words and work of one of Southeast Asia's premier thinkers on development."--BOOK JACKET.
