Abstract

South Korea, one of the Newly Industrialized Countries (NICs), has fallen into serious economic crisis since the second half of 1997 and is now under the control of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The current economic troubles were unexpected by most Koreans, but the causes of the troubles seem to be rooted deep in the Korean economic structure.
