Economic governance, accountability and accounting change in East Asia.

Ritchie, J. (2008) 'Economic governance, accountability and accounting change in East Asia.', Asia Pacific business review., 14 (2). pp. 171-189.


The development of economic governance is now thought to require the remaking of respective accountabilities along with significant corresponding accounting change. On the basis of key discourses about a particular 'critical' period in East Asia's recent history, this article considers whether certain regional and individual country accountabilities were actually remade and whether the role of accounting changed accordingly. It finds that the preferred strategies governing economic recovery after the East Asian crisis were partial and incompletely realized. It concludes that 'higher order' governance has been unexpectedly problematic and requires more East Asian sourced research in future.
