Abstract
This thesis uses three indicators of development (Human Development Index, human capital and infrastructure) to analyze regional development in post 1997 Indonesia. The main conclusion is that the Asia crisis had on the short-term an equalizing effect on the different growth paths of the Indonesian regions. These equalizing effects, however, stagnated and the capital, Jakarta started to diverge again after the great recession on two of the three indicators (Human Development Index and infrastructure). This thesis supports the theory that exogenous shocks have a short-term equalizing effect on regional development.
