Developmental state in Korea (60-70ties) revisited: Institution-building for the making of 'coordinated market'


  • Park, Sung-Jo


The paper attempts to decribe and analyze institutiononal and strategic variables for the success of developmental state under the Park Regime in the 60-70ties in Korea. Particular accent was placed on economic planning and its implementation supported by rationality-centered bureaucrats and foreign capital inducement. Mention was made about the exportled development strategy combined with the unbalanced growth model which resulted in severe regional development gap. A noteworty strategy by the Park regime was to bring up Chaebols as development actors which contributed to a successful model of technology-intensive heavy and chemical industries.
