Vines paints a picture of greed, ignorance and stupidity, challenging some of the well established myths about Asian economies, Asian companies during the 1990s and Asian markets. He puts into perspective the events which plunged Asian economies into chaos. He tries to make sense about what happened, to explain how the crisis occurred, why it was so devastating, but, more importantly what were and are the underlying forces that gave birth to the crisis and remain in place ready to cause more chaos, or at least more problems.
