    CASE STUDY korea

    Lafayette, THTR 201

    Excerpt: ... Jeff Mylet Government and Law 236 Professor Fabian 3/13/2008 CASE STUDY Korea The Korean War is not a simple topic that one can just read a few sentences about and feel that they fully understand the implications of it. To gain a perspective on this subject, one must really understand who was involved in this conflict, why there was a conflict, what the conflict was over, and how this conflict came to be in the first place. As a direct result of World War II, more specifically, the Allied Powers victory in 1945, Japan's occupation of Korea was finally over. Japan had been occupying Korea for 35 years before the Allied success in WWII. Franklin D. Roosevelt and Josef Stalin originally agreed to an international trusteeship at the Yalta Conference in February 1945. The original rationale of this trusteeship was to establish a Korean provisional government which would become "free and independent in due course 1." The United States would occupy south of the 38th parallel (partially because of a fear of Sovi ...

    Cornell, ECON 4730

    Excerpt: ... Econ 4730 F2008 (9/3/2008) Last time, we discussed the benchmark model, in which a change in the policy parameter may convert a stagnant economy into export-led development. Japan was the first, and the largest economy (even today) which presumably took this path, after World War II, under the slogan of export or starve. But there has been some voice of doubt in the literature (starting from papers like Boltho,1996): can the development of a large, industrial economy such as Japan ever be led by export? For this issue, the course document, Appendix 1, Lecture 2, Wan (2008) supplies some background facts, relevant for answering this question: a) Supporting the Japanese economy was a Cold War strategy of America suggested by George Kennan to Secretary of State George Marshall, in PSS 223 (due to the controversy about accurate quotation, a selection of which has been attached). b) The off-shore production of ammunition for America in Japan during the Korean War brought the Japanese economy respite. But whe ...
