He notes that intervention is effective when ‘the targeted industry is fragmented vertically or isolated horizontally from other sectors’ (Samuels 1987: 17). This book agrees with Samuels’ argument about the relevance of ‘developmental timing’ (1987: 17). That is, conditions in the initial stages of development are relatively more conducive to state intervention. We incorporate Samuels’ insights into a broader argument that the state needs to justify intervention in terms of the developmental alliance.
Likewise, Leonard Seabrooke argues that the state in Japan did not lose legitimacy because of the economic slowdown and subsequent ﬁnancial difﬁculties of the 1990s. Rather the state lost legitimacy for its ‘failure to justify ﬁnancial reforms according to Japanese social norms concerning the responsible, responsive, role of government’ (Seabrooke 2002: 37, emphasis in original). Both the state and business, it is argued in this book, acknowledge the importance of retaining the approval of the public.
The political basis for a strong developmental state is assumed to be a coalition with industry and the destruction of leftist elements. This depiction is problematic given the emergence of well-organised trade unions in Korea in the 1980s (Kong 1995; Leftwich 2000: 163–4; Onïs 1991: 114; Polidano 2001: 515). If the state was dominant until the 1970s, statists need to account adequately for the great changes that took place in the 1980s and beyond. Tat Yan Kong, for instance, refers to the ‘dual transition’ that occurred in this period – the liberalisation of the economy and the democratisation of the polity – as substantial changes that undermine assumptions of state autonomy (2000: 3–7).
