The responses of the US government and the International Monetary Fund are described, adjustments in Korean monetary and fiscal policies are scrutinized, and the success of financial and corporate restructuring is analyzed. A concluding chapter describes the aftermath of the crisis and assesses whether there has been sufficient reform. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
