About This Book

This book discusses major challenges Korea faces in promoting R&D as it undergoes extensive economic, social and demographic changes. The Korean government has long put top priority on economic growth in the belief that a rising tide lifts all boats. Hence its R&D policy has been geared toward accelerating economic development. But in recent years, the benefits of economic growth have not trickled down to the poor. As a result, while the economy has continued to grow, poverty has been on the rise, aggravating social polarization. This has sharply increased demand for welfare, putting a strain on government finances.
