Getting a Dial Tone by Lorraine Carlos Salazar

Book Description

A decade after the above quote, far reaching reforms in the telecommunications sector has dramatically changed the situation in both the Philippines and Malaysia. By looking at the institutions and actors that drove these changes, this book examines state capacity, market reform, and rent-seeking in the two countries. In doing so, the study challenges conventional depictions of the Malaysian and Philippine states. In Malaysia, although considered a strong state, patronage and rent-seeking played key roles in policy adoption and implementation.
