By entering the East Asian economic model (EAEM) in the 1950s, the Thai economy was committed to the export-oriented, import-substituting low labour-cost manufacturing paradigm that Vietnam and Cambodia have more recently embraced. The EAEM provides for some success in expanding employment in the manufacturing sector and promoting income generation for its workers and, overall, in promoting national economic development.

(BQ) Part 1 book "Essentials of economics" has contents: First principles; economic models - trade offs and trade; supply and demand; price controls and quotas - meddling with markets; elasticity and taxation; externalities and public goods; perfect competition and the supply curve,...and other contents.
The discipline of economics has developed principles, theories, and
models that isolate the most important determinants of economic events.
In constructing a model, economists make assumptions to eliminate unnecessary
detail to reduce the complexity of economic behavior. Once
modeled, economic behavior may be presented as a relationship between
dependent and independent variables. The behavior being explained is
the dependent variable; the economic events explaining that behavior are
the independent variables.
For the past 14 years, Professor Ann Harding has spearheaded the devel-
opment of highly sophisticated microsimulation models and databases
within Australia, so that policy makers can gain much better information
about the likely distributional impact of current and proposed policies. She
leads the University of Canberra’s National Centre for Social and Economic
Modelling, established in January 1993, and is a professor of Applied Eco-
nomics and Social Policy at the University.
This is a short book. It aims to get across the essential elements of dynamics
that are used in modern treatments of the subject. More significantly, it aims
to do this through the means of examples. Some of these examples are purely
algebraic. But many others consider economic models: both microeconomic
and macroeconomic. Macroeconomics is replete with dynamic models – some
simple and others quite complex. But this is not true of microeconomics.

Chapter 21 - Thinking like a modern economist. After reading this chapter, you should be able to: Differentiate traditional economic building blocks from behavioral economic building blocks, explain what heuristic models are and how traditional and behavioral heuristic economic models differ, distinguish an empirical model from a formal model and list some formal models used by modern economists.
Upon completion of this lesson, the successful participant will be able to: Illustrate and explain the economic model of supply and demand; define many terms, including supply, demand, quantity supplied, and quantity demanded; utilize the intuition behind the supply and demand relationships as well as the variables that can change these relationships to manipulate the supply and demand model.

(BQ) The exposition is clear and logical, providing a solid foundation in monetary theory and the techniques of economic modeling. The book is rooted in the author's years of teaching and research, and will be highly suitable for monetary economics courses in both the upper-level undergraduate and graduate levels.
The main aim of our new book, as reflected in its title, is to consider the
origins, development and current state of modern macroeconomics in a manner
appropriate for intermediate undergraduates taking courses in macroeconomics.
As such we have assumed that such students will already have a firm grasp
of basic economic principles and be familiar with introductory macroeconomic
theories and models as developed, for example, in textbooks such as those by
Abel and Bernanke (2001), Blanchard (2003), or Mankiw (2003).
This book is is designed for the risk analyst who wishes to better understand
the mathematical models and methods used in the management of operational
risk in the banking and insurance sectors. Many of the techniques in this book
are more generally applicable to a wide range of risks. However, each sector
has its unique characteristics, its own data sources, and its own risk migation
and management strategies. Other major risk classes in the banking sector
include credit risk and market risk.
