1. What is KSP?

I do not think it is in any way an exaggeration to refer to this continuing transformation of the Korean society as a miracle…… Never before have the lives of so many people undergone so rapid an improvement over so long a period, nor is there any sign that this progress is near its end.”
Robert Lucas, Jr., “Making a Miracle” Econometrica, 1993 (pp. 251-252)

Korea’s policy conversion towards outward-looking is the most dramatic and dynamic among the various policy changes in developing countries after the Second W.W .
Anne O. Krueger Trade, Foreign Aid and Economic Development (KDI, 1980)
