Alice H. Amsden and Asian Development
Following Gerschenkron, who had argued about the advantages of backwardness, she suggested that some of the characteristics of South Korean growth resulted from its late development. For her the two main characteristics that explained South Korean success were the greater discipline exerted by the state on the national conglomerates, forcing them to export, and the Schumpeterian drive for innovation that that processed sparked.
She published several other important works, including The Rise of the Rest. Her views on economic development will certainly remain influential for a long while.
