    Corporate Rulers: What are Indonesia's Biggest Conglomerates?

    Given the prolonged rule of Suharto's New Order regime, the political and economic systems of Indonesia still have features of an oligarchic system, i.e. power is controlled by a small group of people usually distinguished by family ties and wealth. In the past, religious or military status also played a crucial role. However, as democracy continues to develop some of these features wane, while others still exist.

  • Indonesia Stock Exchange Records Small Loss Amid Mixed International Markets

    Today, the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IHSG) had to give up its upward movement.
