Just for the record the "fear of what had happened to its neighbours during the Asian crisis" is not some neutral issue like fearing earthquakes or typhoons.

The worst effects of the Asian crisis were created by IMF policies (as documented by Stiglitz.) (Such policies were designed to benefit Western banks at the expense of these countries.) As such we can very likely say that the worst effects of the Asian crisis were created by Western policies and Western policies made mercantilism the only rational path for Asian countries to pursue.
