[KDS Publication] The Economic Development of South Korea
Title [KDS Publication] The Economic Development of South Korea
Date 2019-03-22

How did a country with a dearth of natural resources and a sprawling population congested in a limited arable land transform itself into a modern industrial state within a generation? How could this have been achieved given the lingering geopolitical threats to its very survival as a state, as evidenced by the Korean War and the internecine aggressive posturing of its neighbor to the north?

This book looks at strategies, institutional arrangement, the role of entrepreneurs and workers in this odyssey, and on how those factors have worked together through effective leadership to transform South Korea’s economic fortunes.

Seung-hun Chun is currently President of the Korea Institute for Development Strategy (KDS). Having engaged in development policy for South Korean government for three decades, he has been actively providing policy consultations to developing countries. He received a PhD in Economics from the University of Michigan.

The book is now available on online stores of Amazon and Routledge
