About this product
- DescriptionThe ecomies of South Korea and Taiwan in the second half of the twentieth century are to scholars of ecomic development what the ecomy of Britain in the late eighteenth and early nineteeth centuries is to ecomic historians. This book, first published in 2006, is a collaboration between a leading trade ecomist and a leading ecomic sociologist specializing in East Asia, and offers an explanation of the development paths of post-World War II Korea and Taiwan. The ambitions of the authors go beyond this, however. They use these cases to reshape the way ecomists, sociologists, and political scientists will think about ecomic organization in the future. They offer thing less than a theory of, and extended evidence for, how capitalist ecomies become organized. One of the principal empirical findings is that a primary cause for the industrialization of East Asia is the retail revolution in the United States and the demand-responsiveness of Asian manufacturers.
