This paper looks at a more neglected dimension of the Asian financial crisis: the role of political factors and the role of political-economic interaction in initiating the crisis, determining the depth of the crisis and shaping the recovery from the crisis. The paper explains that the Asian crisis was a global problem of large proportions; countries as far away as the United States felt the burden of the Asian problems with economic issues and political problems. The paper examines how politics played a vital role in the financial crisis due to money, politics and nepotism. The paper concludes that it will take a great deal of time before there is any real trust put into the governments and political systems of many of these countries.

From the Paper:

"Known as the G-7 several industrialized countries, specific countries have been supplying and controlling the flow of capital funds to third-world countries. These countries are the United States, Canada, France, Great Britain, Germany, Japan, and Australia. Because the G-7 group has such enormous and far-reaching economic strength, it can dictate and control the interest rate that the countries in its group charge to the nations that wish to borrow money. This is very significant for the third-world countries when they borrow money because they have little control over the rate of interest that they pay and they are not able to 'shop around' and find a better rate for their borrowing."
