This book analyses the economic model of development of South Korea. Since the Second World War, many economists have tried to understand how a poor country could develop and reach life standards similar to rich countries. What has happened in South Korea since the 1960’s is for sure extremely interesting from a development point of view. In a few decades South Korea has transformed itself from a case basket of underdevelopment to a high-income country. In this book, we analyze the main reasons for Korea’s economic miracle and its prospects of growth for the future.
