Shea (1994) was unable to find evidence that banks in Taiwan made loans based on the productivity of the borrower. Financial repression in east Asian economies often tends to be accompanied by poor supervision of the banking system and poor management (Haggard, Lee and Maxfield 1993), and government-directed lending programmes have at times led to the deterioration of bank assets, as occurred with forced lending to heavy industry in Korea in the late 1970s and early 1980s (Choi 1993).
