Korea's stellar rise from a developing to a newly industrializing nation raises many questions. To what extent can the Korean economic success be attributed to the government's development strategies and policies? How relevant is the policy of "getting prices right"? What lessons can other nations draw from the Korean experience? The book looks ahead as well.

Dr. Il SaKong, former Korean Minister of Finance, attempts to shed light on these critical questions, using data on the Korean economy from the 1960s to the present.
