As part of the 2017 Taiwan and Asia Political Science Series, the Center for Taiwan Studies invites you to hear Professor Tun-jen Cheng give a talk titled:
“DISAGGREGATING THE EAST ASIAN DEVELOPMENTAL STATE MODEL: Are South Korea and Taiwan Siamese Twins or Kissing Cousins?”
October 6, 2017
12 to 1:30 PM
Lane Room / 3824 Ellison Hall
Light refreshments will be served.
Successful economic development in South Korea and Taiwan has been universally touted. The World Bank, the Asian Development Bank, and literature on Third World development have used these two nations to showcase the East Asian developmental state model. Looking from outside in, these two nations’ economic performance seems indeed almost identical. Yet they have systematically diverged in managing their economies. Different choices in the past have shaped the course of further development.
