Globalization, Global Standards, and the Future of East Asia
After discussing whether there should be global standards in institutions, the article shows that the so-called global institutions (GSIs) are not truly 'global' but institutions that are specific to the Anglo-American countries. The article then criticizes the arguments that the Anglo-American institutions will eventually become GSIs because of their superiority. Finally, the article discusses why the Anglo-American institutions are particularly unsuited to developing countries, which is why even the Anglo-American countries adopted them only after they had achieved their economic development. It is concluded that the East Asian countries would be ill advised to adopt the so-called GSIs.
