Summary: Developmentalism put in place a number of institutions and policies that were less positive as rapid growth succeeded in Japan and the ROK. Moreover, the end of the Cold War and the rise in global finance challenged many of these developmental practices in fundamental ways. These two countries have moved with varying speeds to make needed adjustments but for a variety of reasons Japan has been the most resistant with negative economic and political effects.
