Abstract

Since the last quarter of the 20th century, neo-liberals have argued for rolling back the state and the expansion of the market forces as a panacea for problems such as economic stagnation, high unemployment, inefficient state organizations, and corruption, which the interventionist state is accused of exacerbating. In this sense, neo-liberalism provokes the traditional view on the interventionist role of the state in the economy and society, a view which has been firmly institutionalized since the end of the Second World War. Korea has been regarded as a prototype of “the developmental state” in East Asia, accomplishing a remarkable state-led industrialization driven with long-term planning for economic growth and credit control for capital allocation to strategic industrial sectors.
