Malaysian reaction for the financial crisis in 1997

Your final term paper should have a clear argument, some theoretical reasoning for your argument, and evidence to support your argument.
You are to write 14 pages about Malaysian reaction to the financial crisis in 1997.
You are to answer particularly these questions : How did Malaysia survive the financial crisis in 1997? And how it did manage to become a successful economy after the financial crisis?
Also, you should dig a bit deeper and try to answer a related question of why Malaysia chose that path and why it was reasonably successful.
For the evidence to support your argument, you might use the growth rate that the country experienced after the financial crisis. As well as using numbers that summarize certain years and the amount of money that those years represent, such as the amount of the foreign direct investment.
