In a 1998 article in World Policy Journal, "What can an activist government do?", Hikino and co-author Alice H. Amsden contended that East Asian governments would rebound from the ongoing currency crisis, and that in order to hasten that rebound they shouldn't take to heart the advise they were getting from the western industrialized powers, because "this is what got them into trouble in the first place."
East Asian companies have developed a system that is more reliant on activist government than that of the "North Atlantic" economies, the article said.
