Political economy of Korean development after liberation : A critical reflection

Related Document
Frame of Image Now, social and economic advancement has been set as a policy goal. This dual revolution bears significance not only for modern Korean history but for world economic history during the post-war era. However, it is misleading to focus only on the positive aspects of Korean development. A balanced and reflexive viewpoint encompassing both the bright and dark sides of Korean development is required. This paper pays attention to the specific characteristics of Korean development as a form of cold war, anticommunist capitalism, and then emphasizes the importance of power relations, interests, and events. By doing so, this paper aims to transcend linear evolutionism as well as the free market-state dichotomy, and offers a coherent analysis of both the successes and structural contradictions inherent to Korean development following liberation. Keywords: colonial modernization, social market economy, cold war anticommunist capitalism, 1953 regime, developmental state, economic liberalization, the 1997 financial crisis, neoliberal restructuring, polarization, Korea-U.S. FTA
