Abstract

The purpose of our study is to identify the sources of economic growth for the Republic of Korea, which experienced a financial crisis in 1997 after joining OECD. We report estimates of output, input, and productivity based on the newly constructed Korea Industrial Productivity (KIP) database following EU KLEMS project guidelines. We find that Korea’s catch-up process with industrial nations in its late industrialization has been predominantly input-led and manufacturing-based. However, since its financial crisis in December 1997, the sources of growth seem to have switched to productivity-growth based. But lower productivity in service industries seems to work against finding renewed sustainable growth path.
