Economic Integration in East Asia  -Perspectives from Spatial and Neoclassical Economics-

Co-publication with Other Foreign Publishers

Edward Elgar

Increasing numbers of free trade and economic partnership agreements have been concluded among many countries in East Asia, and economic integration has progressed rapidly on both a de facto and de jure basis. However, as the authors of this book argue, integration may intensify regional inequalities in East Asia and so this process has attracted much attention of late. Will it actually succeed in achieving greater economic growth or will it in fact cause growing regional disparity?
