Abstract

This is one of the studies on the economic and social modernization of Korea undertaken jointly by the Harvard Institute for International Development and the Korea Development Institute. The undertaking has twin objectives; to examine the elements underlying the remarkable growth of the Korean economy and the distribution of the fruits of that growth, together with the associated changes in society and
government; and to evaluate the importance of foreign economic assistance, particularly American assistance, in promoting these changes.

The rapid rate of growth of the Korean economy, matched in the less developed world only by similar rates of growth in the neighboring East Asian economies of Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore, has not escaped the notice of economists and other observers. Indeed there has been fairly extensive analysis
of the Korean case. (The rest omitted)
