Abstract

Technology considerations have been introduced in economic theory and there is no doubt in the minds of most policy makers that technological improvements are usually linked to economic growth and higher standards of living. Nowhere has this been more evident than in the economic miracles achieved by East Asian countries in the last three decades where high economic growth was accompanied by improved income distribution. Developing indigenous S&T capabilities for industrialization is dependent on several factors which include historical and cultural traditions, political and economic stability, particularly attainment in science education, natural resources, the structure of firms, financial institutions, modes of technology transfer and market forces. An all-encompassing formula for countries to emulate does not exit, yet there are lessons to be learnt from the experiences of East Asian countries. This article reviews the S&T policies followed by South Korea in the last five decades. (The rest omitted)
