Example text

In addition, since the government helped the large enterprises, especially the chaebols, to survive financial difficulties by showering them with preferential measures, the ‘too big to fail’ legacy emerged and moral hazard ensued. Lastly, in a political economic sense, the government’s ability to select and support strategic industries and to enforce restructuring programs generated room for rent-seeking. The corporations lobbied government officials, which raised suspicions of corruption. It also contributed to spreading anti-chaebol sentiment.

After industrial capital began to be accumulated in the 1960s, the government recycled the corporations – in other words, those that had been selected in the 1960s were selected again to participate in the HCI drive of the 1970s. For example, ‘the Promotion Plan for Heavy and Chemical Industries’, announced in June 1973, stated that the companies wishing to enter the HCIs must procure 30 per cent of total investment with their own capital. 6 Along with the promotion of HCIs, in the 1970s the government adopted an export-oriented policy.

Emphasis is laid on intellectual capital and superior human resources as the primary engines for new growth and development. Our main conclusion here is that in order to benefit from the changing economic environment, Korea must not only comply with global requirements but also strive to become more liberalized and attain economic flexibility.
