Democracy and the Korean Economy
Jongryn Mo, Chung-in Moon
Hoover Institution Press/Stanford University, 1999 - Business & Economics - 210 pages
An authoritative study of the new model of Korean political economy, Democracy and the Korean Economy is the first book to analyze the economic impact of democratic change in South Korea. Going far beyond simplistic generalizations about the relationship between democracy and economic growth, the book carefully examines the pattern of change - and in some cases, stability - in major policy areas. The authors look closely at specific industries - such as the auto industry - and chaebols (large business conglomerates) and analyze their market position and political influence under both the authoritarian and democratic regimes.
