Abstract

The divergent paths towards development taken by South Korea and the Philippines may be explained by the difference in the systems of colonialism established b Japan and United States, respectively. The article looks into the distinct agricultural restructuring employed in each country and its effect on industrialization and development. In South Korea, land reform was meticulously carried out, and farmlands strictly redistributed, thereby weakening the position of the landlord class. The would, in return, explain the absence of any form of resistance from the agrarian classes in the course of its industrialization process. South Korea's economy was also completely integrated to that of Japan; consequently, as the latter shifted its focus from agriculture production to industrial development, the former likewise took off.
