ICM Bibliography for

References on informal credit markets for Thailand

Other countries currently available include Bangladesh, People's Republic of China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, South Korea, and Sri Lanka.

Besides the references listed below, also check those that discuss ICMs in Asia as a whole, or in multiple countries (references are listed along with the countries they cover). I have very few references for non-Asian countries, but hopefully, that will grow too....
