The Path to the Future
This paper looks at the political, financial and social future of Korea.
This paper presents a discussion about the future of Korea . The author looks to the work of Bruce Cummings’ Korea’s Place in the Sun: A Modern History to illustrate several key goals and points for the future of the nation. The essay examines the changes that should occur within the country over the next decade, including the maturation of a democratic government, reforming the financial system, and improving diplomatic relations between the North and South.
The world continues to globalize even in the face of terrorist attacks on America . When the focus moves to another nation there are many things that are occurring during the globalization process. One nation, Korea , is making great strides in many things when it comes to the process; however there are other areas in which it is lacking. The structure of the nation is unique in that it has fought within itself for two types of governments, and those two sides still do not see eye to eye on most issues. As we globalize it will be interesting to note how Korea moves to address some of the key issues that she will face. Bruce Cummings, author of Korea’s Place in the Sun: A Modern History allows for the possibility that many changes are headed to Korea and he details the way he believes they will happen. While there are some areas that will be addressed as a natural extension of the globalizing process there are several that are going to have to be consciously worked out.
