Section Information for Spring 2015

In this course, we will talk about how the post-war South Korean economy has evolved in conjunction with globalization. We will explore various topics including, but not limited to, 1) how the groundwork for the ‘miracle of Han river’ was prepared in the eve of globalization, 2) why the miracle turned into mirage with the financial crisis in 1997, 3) how the crisis reshaped the way the Korean government deals with globalization, and 4) what the current status of the Korean economy is in the context of globalization. We will also extensively compare South Korea with other similar, yet different, East Asian economies.
