Chang, Dae-Oup (2005) 'Neoliberal Restructuring of Capital Relations in East and South-East Asia.' In: Saad Filho, Alfredo and Johnston, Deborah, (eds.), Neoliberalism: a Critical Reader. London: Pluto Press, pp. 251-258.
The main aim of this chapter is to show neoliberalism in east and south-east Asia as a restructuring process of the national and regional social relations between capital and labour. To do so, it explores the process by which the countries of east and south-east Asia (SEA) have been integrated into neoliberal-driven globalisation. It will be shown that, even if the shortcomings of neoliberal social policies were clearly revealed through the Asian economic crisis in 1997–98, there have been increasing attempts by the state and capital to revitalise capitalist competitiveness at the expense of the working class, who are gradually beginning to fight back for their rights.
