Structural Adjustment Policies of Korea’s Coal Industry
Preface
The study of Korea’s economic and social transformation offers a unique opportunity to better understand the factors that drive development. Within one generation, Korea has transformed itself from a poor agrarian society to a modern industrial nation, a feat never seen before. What makes Korea’s experience so unique is that its rapid economic development was relatively broad-based, meaning that the fruits of Korea’s rapid growth were shared by many. The challenge of course is unlocking the secrets behind Korea’s rapid and broad-based development, which can offer invaluable insights and lessons and knowledge that can be shared with the rest of the

Abstract

In the process of economic growth, some industries are growing and some industries are declining. Declining industries can be defined as industries with losing competitiveness. They are no longerable to exploit invested resources efficiently. At the level of the national economy, it is desirable to move inefficiently-used resources to a more productive industry. In the case of high exit barriers existing in the declining industry, the government may execute adjustment policies, which would lower exit barriers to facilitate the shift of resources from the declining industry to a productive industry.
In general, adjustment policies comprise the measures for re-employing the laborers employed in the declining industry, disposal or transfer of the facilities and the revitalization of the community where the declining industry is located. This study aims at scrutinizing the adjustment policies of the Korean coal industry, which proceeded rapidly from the late 1980s to the early 1990s. From the result of the study, we can also expect some solutions for the smooth execution of the adjustment policies. (The rest omitted)
