  URL: http://www.tni.org/asia/watch/asem22.htm
  It is a report written by Dr. Walden Bello, professor of sociology and public administration at the University of the Philippines in 1997. "Turmoil" has been the operative word used to describe the economic situation in Southeast Asia since the de facto devaluation of the Thai baht on July 2, 1997. By late October, when this report was finished, the Philippine peso had lost close to 30 per cent of its dollar value, the Thai baht about 47 per cent, the Malaysian ringgit 32 per cent, and the Indonesian rupiah 54 per cent. Even the mighty Singapore dollar was not unscathed in the currency shakedown.

Asia Recovery Information Center
  URL: http://aric.adb.org/
  The Asia Recovery Information Center was first conceived at the Meeting on Development Cooperation: Responding to the Asia Crisis, in Sydney, Australia in March 1999. The ARIC Website has three objectives: to monitor the social and economic impacts, as well as the recovery process, of the Asian Crisis; to collect and disseminate information on the response of the international community to the Crisis; and to add to the dialogs about "policy reform in response to the crisis. "Although it will be expanded to cover more countries, at present, ARIC covers the five main countries affected by the Crisis -- Indonesia, the Republic of Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand. ARIC's information is divided into seven sections. Recovery News is updated daily and contains news briefs and articles from around the world (both the source and the country of origin are noted). Hard data can be found in ARIC Indicators, which holds more than 40 social, economic, and financial indicators presented in both table and chart form. The Country Focus section allows users to search ARIC's information by topic and by country. The site also lists meetings and conferences, as well as offering an extensive collection of notable links. This resource is truly invaluable to users following the Asian Crisis.

Bank of International Settlements (BIS) Policy Paper 6: Bank restructuring in practice
  URL: http://www.bis.org/publ/plcy06.pdf
  Managing a banking crisis is one of the most difficult tasks to confront a policymaker. Often measures must be decided quickly, sometimes in the eye of a crisis. Almost inevitably, decisions will be guided by imperfect information. This is an intrinsic problem because the very business of banking is built on the possession of information not available to others. Moreover, the various actors may well have an incentive to distort the facts. Because banks lie at the centre of modern economies, policies can have far- reaching implications, political as well as economic. This is particularly true at the present time when so many emerging market economies are simultaneously grappling with banking crises. These issues were discussed by a small group of senior central bankers at the BIS in December 1998. Two days of discussion highlighted the extent of the challenges and the diversity of approaches to the problems. The country papers that follow highlight the main experiences of specific economies. This paper provides an overview of the main issues.

CRS Report-An Analysis of U.S. Foreign Policy Interests and Options
  URL: http://www.fas.org/man/crs/crs-asia.htm
  "The crisis has direct legislative implications in the U.S. due to a pending request for the appropriation of $3 .5 billion in support of a New Arrangements to Borrow (NAB) for the IMF and the likelihood that the Administration will request substantial additional funds for the IMF or IMF-led stabilization initiatives. In addressing these funding requests Congress is likely to be divided between those who will emphasize the need for U. S. leadership and the importance of a "stitch in time" before the crisis spreads further, and an opportunity to promote needed reforms and market opening, and those who will call for letting the international banks absorb the cost of past risky loans, and letting market forces weed out weak companies and unsound economic policies." Author of the articles is Richard P. Cronin, a Specialist in Asian Affairs in the Foreign Affairs and National Defense Division.

  URL: http://www.fas.org/man/crs/crs-asia2.htm

Second, financial markets are interlinked. Third, Americans are major investors in the region. Fourth, the currency turmoil affects U.S. imports and exports as well as capital flows and the value of the U.S. dollar. Fifth, the crisis is causing economic turmoil that is exposing weaknesses in many financial institutions in Asia. The economic problems of the troubled Asian economies are adversely affecting the United States, Japan, and others.
