Corporatism and Korean Capitalism employs corporatist theory to examine the Korean experience of state-business ties. It includes theoretical chapters on Asian and Korean corporatism, case studies of agriculture, industry and industrial relations and an introduction to comparative corporatism. It helps to push the study of Korean political and economic change from description on to theoretical analysis.
This volume will challenge researchers and students of Asian studies, economics and politics to extend and refine their understanding of both corporatism and Korea. Moreover, this book offers a guide to policymakers confounded by the curious mix of collusion and competition in Korean political economy.
