East Asia's Present and Future

George Russell, Chairman of Frank Russell Company, presented this paper as the opening address to the "East Asia in Crisis" conference. The essay addresses the tremendous challenges government and corporate leaders face as they attempt to understand and deal with the destabilizing effects of the crisis in Asia. The essay reviews the reasons for the crisis, but more importantly focuses attention on future of Asia--the restoration of investor confidence, the means to prevent future crises, and the prospects for prosperity in the region.
