Abstract

Regional development in Korea today is a political necessity. It is to secure continuing political supports for further national economic development on one hamd and on the other, to meet the ever increasing demands for more equitable shares of the development pie. In a society like Korea where 76% of the population believe that they have now achieved "middle class" status, support for futher growth and demand for equitable share are of two sides of a coin. The societal context of persuasion for development ,planning is being shifted from mere rationality -the most efficient means to unquestioned ends- to participatory opportunities. Under such circumstances, "support generally takes the form of agreement not to resist implementation if a plan recognizes or furthers the ends of the affected groups." (Richard Warren Smith, 1973, pp.277-278) And therefore, the scope and strength of political support and the equity of distribution are mutually reinforcing. (The rest omitted)
