Corporate governance and political economy in South Korea: family ownership, control of business groups, and state-led capitalism

Abstract:

The evolving nature of the Korean chaebol – both a business group and the founding family who control the corporation – continues to intrigue scholars of corporate governance (Khanna and Yafeh, JEL 2007). In my thesis, I investigate these multi-generational controlling families to explain the chaebol's significance in the historical evolution of South Korea’s political economy during the 20th century.


My research first describes the origins of chaebol
