This paper proves that, in order to accomplish the highest economic development at mac-roeconomical level, it is necessary to maintain and manage imbalances, so that they do not become unbearable. For this purpose, South-Koreans have created the ‘South-Korean essentials’, an ex-tremely complex concept, which involves multiple factors that together create the targetted effect. The South-Korean miracle challenges even the neoclassical model. State intervention in the economy is one of the key factors for success due to a planning system based on strict regulations. To these must be added the planning – market relationship, the agriculture – industry nexus and the ‘two feet’ eco-nomic theory.
