Korea's economic development over the past three decades is rather a mystery than a miracle. This book uncovers how Korea rose up from the rubbles of war to one of the world's leading industrial countries without fully adopting the development methodology prescribed by Western scholars or the recommendations of international organizations. Korea used its own unique approach to pursue its economic development and it cannot be categorized into any conventional way as it is an impressive yet independent model that stands on its own.
This book introduces Korea's unique economic development model from the viewpoint of an actual Korean policymaker with more than 30 years of hands on experience in planning and implementing economic development policies in the Korean government.
Instead of laying down relevant historical facts (e.g. events, policies), the Upside Down Success Story offers an unique angle - an actual inside-story into the thinking and decision making process the decision makers in the Korean government went through to achieve the miraculous economic development as well as the lessons learned.
This book will be welcomed by those studying public policy, public administration, or economic development in general and the Korean economy in particular as well as by those currently engaged in dealing with Korea.
