Abstract
Abstract The Asian financial crisis, which devastated many of the newly industrializing countries, is said to have demonstrated the inherent fragility of economies built upon laissez?faire principles. However, it appears that the major sources of disruption have come from policies that deviate from laissez faire, such as government?guaranteed bailouts and international monetary policy. That capitalist economies were afflicted by the crisis does not constitute an indictment of free markets.
