Divergent Development: The Pursuit of Liberty, Equality, and Growth in Argentina and the Republic of Korea*

Lawrence R. Alschuler


In addressing these issues I propose to account for the divergence between the NICs of these two regions through a comparative analysis of a member state from each region, Argentina and the Republic of Korea. By accounting for, that is explaining and predicting, the divergent development of these two nations, we will have a basis for asserting which theoretical approach (nco-dcpcndcncy or nco-lib cralism) is more valid. And once their divergent development is explained, we will be able to identify the conditions responsible for the success of the East Asian model and to say whether these same conditions may be found elsewhere allowing for the successful export of that model.
