A New Deal For Asia looks at whether Asia can reinvent itself for the new millennium after the chaos and turmoil of the Asian crises. According to Dr Mahathir Mohamad, now is not the time for recriminations, but to reexamine the way the global economic system functions and also look ahead, move on and focus on the future. None of these, however, can be done in isolation. The lesson the world must learn from the crisis is that we all share a common fate, and that there must now be a willingness to challenge some of the most fundamental tenets of global capitalism. This book also reflects on the major themes in Dr. Mahathir's political agenda. As the architect and strategist of modern Malaysia's phenomenal growth and development over the last decade, Dr. Mahathir seems to thrive on unfashionable ideas, controversial policies and a contentious diplomacy: an enigma baffling to both his detractors and supporters alike.
