Abstract

Is democracy incompatible with economic growth? To a number of states which have embarked on a process of transition from and authoritarian, state-led economy to a democratic, market-led one, the process of unraveling this thesis on "transitional incompatibility" has not been an easy one. A case in point is South Korea - the economic dragon of East Asia - which, after having attained a considerable level of growth in the late 1970s, largely under the auspices of authoritarian rule, made headway towards democratization. Studies in recent years, however, show how its economy has been decelerating since the onset of democracy, even as others consider the converse true with economic growth and market forces undermining democratization.
