Example text

Southeast Asia, as the next five chapters will show, is a more varied story. Latin America’s response largely validates the argument that globalization leads to liberal policy harmonization across affected countries. Southeast Asia largely questions this harmonization argument. Latin American states’ similar policy responses strengthens the assumption that Latin America is a coherent region, while Southeast Asian states lack of similar responses questions this assumption for Southeast Asia. 3 Indonesia Indonesia at the end of 2004 was a very different country than it had been at the beginning of 1994.

Indonesia’s banking policy and banking sector went through a similar if less radical transformation. In 1994, Indonesia had a banking sector dominated by large, compromised state banks, a growing number of very small local private banks often linked closely to larger conglomerates, and a limited number of constrained foreign banks. The largest of these private banks were closely linked to the Soeharto regime, as were the largest debtors in this banking system. Not only was Indonesia a long-standing proponent of the statist-nationalist banking policy status quo, it was implemented in a patrimonial manner in order to strengthen and broaden the one-party New Order regime (MacIntyre 1994).

Once financial services were included in the General Agreement on Trade in Services and brought into the Uruguay Round, American trade negotiators and other supporters had diametrically opposed interests to those of most developing members (the majority of members). The American stand called for negotiations to be based on standard General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade principles (Malmgren 1985), including the use of negative lists, hard commitment timetables, and the absolute most-favoured nation principle.
