A comparison of the economic transformation of the Soviet Union and East Asia (for the purposes of this chapter, the newly industrialized countries — excluding Hong Kong — China and Vietnam) produces an impression of clear similarity and radical contrast.

The outcomes of the process have been vastly different — an ‘economic miracle’ on the one hand, decline and collapse on the other.
