This chapter draws attention to debates on key models of economic and enterprise development that is those involving the developmental state model and neo-liberalism, as applied in emerging economies. It focuses on Southeast Asian economies, arguing that better informed insights into the benefits and repercussions of the form of development adopted by Southeast Asian economies can be obtained by deploying insights from two different bodies of literature: that on the developmental state and the literature on business history pioneered by Alfred Chandler. In combination, these insights help to explain the rise and fall of major enterprises in Southeast Asia, with further implications for our understanding of the nature of capitalism in this region.

Keywords: Southeast Asia; developmental state; enterprises; economic development; business history; Alfred Chandler; neo-liberalism
