Fiery Dragons

Banks, Moneylenders and Microfinance in Burma

The book explores the present circumstances of Burma’s financial malaise, but does not neglect how it got there. Opening its account at the dawn of the colonial era, the book takes the story forward to the events that in our times bring the Burmese people out onto their streets to demand something better.
