    Preface

    This paper was prepared at the request of the South-East Asian Central Banks) SEACEN (Research and Training Center as part of a research project on monetary policy in the SEACEN countries during the 1980s.

The member countries of the SEACEN are Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, the Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, and Thailand, and throughout this paper, the term “Asian countries” refers to this group of nine countries.
