Readings on Indonesian Economy
Prompted by a discussion with a friend who is interested in Indonesian economy and by my recent task of reviewing a new book on the same subject, below is a list of a must-read (relatively recent) books I recommend to understand the (contemporary) Indonesian economy. Of course this list is just a fraction of the literature out there, including the many individual articles and papers in journals. But for undergraduate students (e.g those taking "Perekonomian Indonesia" - Indonesian Economy - course in FEUI, these are nice first reads I would suggest). My co-baristas and I will try updating the list.
