State Dominance In Myanmar

State Dominance In Myanmar

by Tin Maung Maung Than

The central focus of the book is the state’s efforts to industrialize Myanmar, first through direct intervention and planning under a socialist economic framework as interpreted by the state leaders (1948-88) and lately (1989 onwards) through state-managed outward orientation. In examining developments during the 1948-88 period, this study situates the Myanmar case within the developmental state paradigm, whereby a critique of the investment-driven -pathway of Myanmar’s political economy under socialist ethos is provided. On the other hand, in examining the post-1988 period, the focus is on drawing attention to continuities regarding the state’s crucial role, despite attempts to introduce market-conforming policies and practices, in economic development in general and industrialization in particular.
