Abstract

East Asian economies have achieved rapid and sustained developments for quite a long period of time. The region as a whole has now been one of the three major poles of the world economy. Some call this phenomenon a miracle, but others see it as a logical consequence of well-concerted efforts of the countries involved. Some emphasize the common elements of the East Asian economic development, while others look into significant differences among individual countries’ development experience. While some argue that the growth engines of East Asian countries are not stoppable, others point out that East Asian miracles are over. This course is divided into two parts. The first part of the course is composed of a series of lectures focused on theoretical issues of Ease Asian development. Students will be introduced and guided to various theoretical debates related with understanding East Asian development. There will be an in-classroom exam at the end of the first part. The second part is mainly composed of students’ presentations on the country cases. Students are required to participate in a research project on a country case/comparative study of development experience by choosing a country from the region. Every student has to make a 10 minutes presentation during the class and develop it into a final term paper to be submitted in the final week.

  • Introduction: East Asian Development Experience
    East Asia as a region has emerged from ashes and destruction of war and revolution to a leading pillar of dynamism in the world economy. The achievements of the countries in the region have often been perceived and described in terms of miracle. This miracle, however, has been made by men and women of the region and was made possible in the context of particular domestic and international environment. The miraculous achievements have also been accompanied by human, social, and political costs. We need to see the East Asian miracle from a balanced perspective paying attention to both sunny and dark sides of the story. We also have to see the commonalties as well as variations in their respective pathways of the regional countries from poverty to prosperity.
