This paper compares the trajectories over the last two decades of two export-oriented ‘boom crops’ in Southeast Asia: indsturial shrimp aquaculture and industrial plantation forestry. It focuses on differences in the establishment, operation and politics of these sectors to explain why they have experienced very different kinds of ‘booms.’
