    Asia is a net oil importer, a significant rise in oil prices could raise inflationary pressures and constrain economic activity in several economies. The Indian economy is expected to expand by 7. In his most recent book, Markets over Mao: The Rise of Private Business in China, Nicholas Lardy carefully compiles and analyzes an enormous amount of data to support his claim that China’s private sector, and not the state, has become by far the most important source of recent growth in Chinese productivity and n and , Lardy argues, private sector firms produced.

    The author has discussed the international economic environment and its bearing on Asian countries in the first section of the paper. The slow growth of industrial countries, the escalation of inflation, the two oil price hikes, increased protectionism, and high interest rates are among the adverse international developments that affected the developing countries of Asia in the s.
