Democratization, Emergence of the Knowledge-Based Economy, and the Changing Developmental Alliances in South Korea and Taiwan

Research output: Chapter in book/report/conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

The developmental state has since the 1980s been considered one of the most important forces that have facilitated the economic development of some East and Southeast Asian societies. The strong arm of the state in devising economic plans, supporting business enterprises, suppressing the civil society, and managing the global economy is considered imperative for the late developing countries to catch up with the advanced ones (Johnson 1982; Gold 1986; Amsden 1989; Wade 1990; Evans 1995; Weiss 1998; Woo-Cumings 1999).
