Abstract

This study attempts to examine the role played by the public enterprise sector in Korea's economic development since the early 1960s, on which relatively little research has been directed. It is based on a belief that Korea's economic experience, particularly that of the 1960s and 1970s cannot be explained without acknowledging the government's strong initiative in the economy. The study discusses the rationale of public intervention in general, followed by a consideration of Korea's turbulent modern history, through which the dominant role of the public sector has emerged. It notes some strong socio-cultural aspects, such as racial homogeneity and the influence of neo-Confucianism as factors behind Korea's pattern of economic development. The study examines economic policy-making under the Park Government (1961-79) during which national planning and public enterprises were intensively utilized. (The rest omitted)
