The Asian financial crisis was a period of financial crisis that gripped much of East Asia and Southeast Asia beginning in July and raised fears of a worldwide economic meltdown due to financial contagion.. The crisis started in Thailand (known in Thailand as the Tom Yam Kung crisis; Thai: วิกฤตต้มยำกุ้ง) on 2 July, with the financial collapse of the Thai baht.

  Mr. Hiebert's book offers more than a snapshot of how Southeast Asian nations, among them Cambodia, Myanmar, Singapore and Thailand, are responding to China's overreach. The book is a very useful collection of contributions covering different industries and design specialists. While we see young engineers and others, even in developing countries, applying concepts like CE and biomimicry to contribute to sustainability, CE also has its critics.
