Abstract/Artist's Statement

This paper examines how the optimal degree of competition for a developing market could be achieved through the implementation of different policies. In the first chapter, the relationship between competition and economic growth is discussed based on different economic theories and models. Besides discussing how competition is managed through two different types of policies, the industrial policies and competition policies, specifically based on cases from Japan and Korea, the following chapters also discuss what the optimal degree of competition for a developing market and industry. My analysis indicates that this optimal degree should be found depends on the types of industry and the level of technology its development requires.
