Summary of this issue

 Contains South Korean economic history with rapid development and sketches out the country’s current challenges. These contemporary issues includes growing openness to international capital flows, which has exposed South Korea to the vagaries of international financial crises, industrial policy and the challenges for competition policy, and pensions and safety nets. The issue of the labor market experiences of a group of recent arrivals (refugees) from North Korea is also discussed.
