Crony Capitalism: Corruption and Development in South Korea and the Philippines
Why has the literature on Asian development not addressed the issue of money politics in Korea? How can we reconcile the view of an efficient developmental state in Korea before 1997 with reports of massive corruption and inefficiency in that same country in 1998 and 1999? Politics is central to the answer. In this book I make two arguments. First, both Korea and the Philippines experienced significant corruption throughout the post-independence era. Second, political--not economic--considerations dominated policy making in both countries.
