The Republic of Koreaâ€™s Economy in the Swirl of Global Crisis
AbstractThis paper argues that the Republic of Korea (hereafter Korea) is not immune to global crises, but that a more than proportional response of gross domestic product to global crises does not seem to be the general case either. Along this line of reasoning, Koreaâ€™s extreme response to the current crisis in the fourth quarter of 2008 was attributed not only to the crisis in the United States, but also to additional idiosyncratic components, such as the extraordinary collapse of the Peopleâ€™s Republic of Chinaâ€™s (PRC) imports and the drastic capital outflow from Korea.
