Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
The overall tone is cautiously optimistic. The contributors describe the reactions of the South Korean government and its major companies to the global financial crisis that peaked in late 2008. We see that international trade fell sharply, and Korea is heavily dependent on it. But the government took successful steps to prop up the economy vis a vis Korea's main trading partners.

Unlike the Asian currency crisis of the late 90s, the book shows that this time South Korea has fared better. There was no large fall in the won against other key currencies, and the government did not have to spend heavily to prevent this.
