In just one generation, South Korea has transformed from a recipient of foreign aid to a member of the G20. In this informative book, South Korea is used as a case by which to explore and illustrate specific issues arising from the complex relationships between the nation's economic development and society.

O. Yul Kwon considers the task of achieving sustainable and equitable social and economic development in South Korea. The author presents an in-depth analysis from macro perspectives as well as examining micro-level relationships between economic development and social trust in the recent past. Grounded in empirical research of South Korean society and economy, this book offers practical suggestions by which to achieve sustainable and equitable development in South Korea.

This insightful and timely book provides valuable information for a scholarly audience interested in South Korean history, economics and society, and for researchers investigating the significance of the relationship between economic development and society as well as social trust.
