In short, there has been a diffusion of power within the state as key domestic cartels managed to influence and even capture sections of the policymaking apparatus of the state. In this context, economic liberalization within a system of nomenklatura capitalism inevitably weakened the capacity of policy makers to respond to crises. Indonesia provides a clear illustration of this argument. First, deregulation in Indonesia led to the consolidation of powerful politically connected conglomerates (Robison and Rosser 1998; Pincus and Ramali 1998).

However, these policies cannot be simply dismissed as policy failures just because the benefits of an overvalued currency accrue to the non-tradable sector; they must be seen as a reflection of the relative political dominance of the non-tradable over the tradable sector (Friedan 1991). More significantly, however, the distinctive character of embedded mercantilism in Southeast Asia is reflected in the growth of a type of nomenklatura capitalism in Southeast Asia. The term ‘nomenklatura capitalism’ is used to highlight the close connection between political elites and insulated domestic cartels.
