Three years have passed since the onset of the 2008 global crisis, and although some believe that there may be a second down draft soon, attention has shifted from crisis narration to assessing lessons essential for preventing or managing recurrences. The exercise is worthy, but there is always the danger of preparing for the last war, when the next attack takes another form. "Prevention and Crisis Management" addresses this problem by highlighting the future threat to Asia from a broader perspective that takes account of the Japanese and Asian financial crises during the 1990s, as well as the global crisis of 2008 itself. The enlarged framework turns out to be illuminating for two distinct reasons. First, it reveals that Asian crises take many diverse forms, and second, that the solutions devised to date only have been locally, not universally effective. Policymakers accordingly are advised to always plan for the element of surprise.
