IN THIS SUMMARY
During the 1980s, America’s three leading business magazines began spreading the word of Korea’s rise. Donald Kirk uses Chung Ju Yung as a mirror to reflect and illuminate the unique Korean psyche and the idiosyncratic culture and dynamic economic power to which it has given rise. Korean Dynasty is a must read for business people and students of business and the social sciences studying the socio-economics of Asia. The author exposes with meticulous detail the inner workings of a Korean conglomerate, the unique character of Korean business and how it interacts with its government and foreigners, and uncovers the glaring and subtle differences between doing business with Korea and Japan.
