This paper examines how Taiwan, an island confederation colonized at different times by various superpowers, Western as well as East Asian, has evolved into an economic power at the nexus of American research and development, Hong Kong commerce, and Chinese raw manufacturing. The writer explains the Asian development model responsible for the enormous economic growth and success of China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan. The writer also discusses the relationship between the government and the private sector in these countries, and the role of education in their rapid progress. In addition, the writer analyzes Taiwan's part in global trade, its economic relationship to other East Asian countries and to the US, the factors contributing to its success, and the positive and negative consequences of that success on Taiwan. Moreover, the paper explores different facets of globalization and its effect on Taiwanese society and culture, and concludes with a discussion of the conflict between globalization and localization in Taiwan.
