About This Book

In September 1997 Prime Minister Dr. Mahathir Mohamad rejected the solution for the financial crisis facing Malaysia proposed by the IMF. The radically different remedial actions taken by Dr Mahathir were generally - but wrongly - thought to presage doom for the country. This book presents unpublished material which records the September 1997 discussions between Dr Mahathir and Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop and also subsequent decisions and meetings which reveal the thought and rationales which were the basis of the Prime Minister's draconian 1998 actions in imposing exchange controls and other traumatic policies. Policies from which the Malaysian economy emerged not unscarred but as a functioning economy. With chronology and index.
